Milwaukee, Wisconsin (November 9, 2006) — Upper Iowa University will hold a grand opening on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. to celebrate its recent move to 620 S. 76 Street, Suite 100 in Milwaukee. The UIU-Milwaukee Center offers a wide variety of undergraduate degree programs during evening and Saturday classes for adult students.
Upper Iowa University is the first tenant to occupy space in the recently renovated Fair Park Business Center. The building was previously owned by Wisconsin Electric Power Company, and referred to as the Metro South Service Center. Plans are currently underway for other firms to join UIU at Fair Park Business Center in the near future.
“The entire move was designed to enhance customer service and offer our students a modernized and enhanced learning environment,” said Tim Hunt, associate vice present for the extended university. “Upper Iowa’s new facility will have 12 technology-enhanced classrooms, and includes a 36-station computer lab to support student research.”
Hunt added, “The new location has ample free parking and convenient access to public transportation. Because we are so close to State Fair Park, our new location just off I-94 supports busy Milwaukee area commuters with an opportunity to easily continue their education when they get off work.”
The open house will offer tours from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., with refreshments and a string quartet playing from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the center’s foyer. Remarks and a ribbon cutting ceremony will follow at 5:15 p.m. For more information, please contact Paula Stewart at 414-475-3384 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application fees will be waived for new students enrolling with Upper Iowa during the open house. For more information about degree programs offered at the UIU-Milwaukee center, go to www.uiu.edu.
