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!

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.
I would say it is totally worth living in PH Apartments: quality apartments, great community, best customer service ever. I complain about something today and it is fixed by tomorrow. This is probably one of the best apartments I’ve ever lived in. The recently started drop-in dinners are just awesome. I can go on but overall 10 on 10!
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.
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.
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…
The apartments have given me a place I can settle in comfortably. I’ve lived here for years, and would love to stay.
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 …
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!
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!
