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 apartments have given me a place I can settle in comfortably. I’ve lived here for years, and would love to stay.
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.

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.

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.

I chose to live at PH because I thought I would immediately be able to make contact with folks in Madison. I didn’t know anyone in Wisconsin before my studies at the university began, and so, through the student ministry and a local Presbyterian church, I was able to quickly ground myself in Madison. I’m very happy with the apartment, the university and larger Madison communities. I’ve been able to feel completely at home despite being more than 800 miles from my family. PH was and still is an i…
Living in PH Apartments has been a great experience. The location, management and amenities here at PH Apartments are the best value in town for college students!
Being in a Microcommunity is a great way to meet other people in PH Apartments. I really like how it is student-led because it gives us an opportunity to explore and discuss topics we are all interested in.
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.
