Where are you going to live next year?!
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 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.
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!
I’ve talked to guys who were living in a small studio apartment, sleeping on the floor in a sleeping bag. I tell them, ‘Just because you slept on a dirt floor in the service doesn’t mean you have to live like that now.’
The apartments have given me a place I can settle in comfortably. I’ve lived here for years, and would love to stay.
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!
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!
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.
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 PH Apartments Scholars is a small group with big ideas. The best way to get to know your community!
