Rising indie stars Hippo Campus captivated students on October 6 with a wildly energetic and, many students felt, impressive show in UW-Milwaukee’s own Union Ballroom – closing the book on UWM’s debut Homecoming week.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers at UWM have been giving back to the community for 20 years. On a breezy, sunny day in Spaights Plaza, I spoke with several volunteers raising awareness for the cause. They all agreed that their favorite event is the Collegiate Challenge Week during spring break.

Next year the chapter hopes to raise enough money to take more volunteers, possibly on two different trips.
