The WLHS American mentors to new international students have done an exemplary job connecting with this year's new students, whether face to face or virtually! The mentor-mentee activity for October involved sharing autumn traditions and decorating pumpkins. While some of the pairs were able to meet in person, others did the activity together over a video call. Our Wisco students are the best as they adapt and show patience with new ways of getting the job done!
This fall "Hiking Vikings" has begun as a new initiative at Honey Creek Hall. Once a month interested students can attend a hiking excursion around the greater Milwaukee area. The first event took place on Saturday, September 26. Students explored the beautiful Cudahy Nature Preserve about 25 minutes from campus. The benefits of the hike included exercise, the refreshing air, experience exploring nature and time away from indoors and technology, and the opportunity to build friendships in a safe outdoor setting. The hiking destination will change each month so students get to explore new scenery throughout the year.
