Living at PH has been a great experience for me. I felt that I connected with my neighbors more than I would have living elsewhere on campus. The PH Scholars program has given me a home within home experience and has allowed me to connect even more with the individuals I live with.
The PH Apartment Scholars Program offered me a way to connect with students I live with as an upper classman as well as connect with other people who want to be active in the community around us. Being the leader of the Scholars Program has given me opportunities to be creative with leadership. Also it’s provided a different perspective on what collaboration can look like; that people getting financial benefits can still be engaged with their hearts and minds.
I lived in a dorm my first semester here. I didn’t really know anyone and had no idea what I was going to do for housing. I met Paul at a ‘Vets for Vets’ meeting. He told me about this program and I jumped on it. It was like a blessing out of the sky for me. The thing I like the most is how cohesive we are as a group. Maybe it is our military background; we share the same values, we all pitch in around the apartment and we all get along really well.
The Food for Thought micro-community has given me the opportunity to make connections with people I normally would not have. It has also made me aware of the community around us and how we can help make it a better place while making friends and having fun!!! From this micro-community specifically, I have learned so much about the importance of knowing where your food comes from and how to be a smart eater.
The PH Apartments Scholars is a small group with big ideas. The best way to get to know your community!
Before I came to UW there was a guy in Madison who owned a house. He used to always rent out to vets, so they could live together and have a place that was theirs. It seemed like everybody knew about it, whether you lived there or not. When he died that property got sold, I guess. I’d love to have people know there is a place where vets can live together and get support. That’s why I decided to live here and help start this program.
The apartments have given me a place I can settle in comfortably. I’ve lived here for years, and would love to stay.
The PH Apartments Microcommunity program has allowed me to expand upon my leadership and communication skills in a topic I am passionate about! This has been a tremendous opportunity for me and the rest of my group!
The PH Apartments scholars program has been a great opportunity for me to meet new people and further enjoy the diversity of the UW Madison campus. The events are relatable and fun for all involved. My favorite one was the presidential debate viewing because I learned how to discuss politics without fear of disapproval or conflict. I can’t wait until next semester’s events!
The Microcommunity has been a great opportunity. Being a college student it is difficult to eat healthy, but through reading “In Defense of Food” and the support of the members of the group we have all been able to be more conscious about what we are eating. Maggie got some cookbooks and we got to experiment with some of the recipes. One of my favorites was from the “100 healthy pizzas” cookbook; we made a basil mozzarella pizza. It is a great way to get to know people who are all interested in …
