MATC staff help students check in and move into campus housing

As back-to-school commercials air and classroom supplies go on sale in the city’s major retailers, dozens of MATC students moved into campus housing. In 2021, the former Milwaukee Journal Sentinel complex opened its doors to its first residents. Two years later, and students are still eagerly moving into their fully furnished apartments. Students were greeted by faculty, staff and students including the College’s Dean of Student Experience, Equan Burrows and three-time Coach of the Year, Randy Casey.

For many students, the transition to college marks the first time living on their own. While the transition can come with complex challenges, there are many benefits to on- campus housing including higher retention, proximity to campus, and increased chances for students to get involved.  Westown Green is an affordable option for students in need of a place to stay. Students who want to apply for housing can still do so by visiting the College’s Student Life and Resources webpage.

Christopher D'Allen, Editor-in-Chief
My name is Christopher D'Allen and I am the Editor-in-Chief for the MATC Times, a student run paper dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in scholastic journalism. The MATC Times stands as the voice of our students and a bastion of free speech for the communiy we represent. I joined the staff in my first semester at MATC and obtained my current position at the start of Summer '23. Here I am a photography student and hold a BA in Political Science and Spanish & Latin American Studies with a minor in Democracy and Justice Studies. I have worked an Administrative Assistant, World Language Instructor, a Head Lifeguard and Resident Assistant, but have found that my passion lies in the arts. As a photographer, I challenge myself daily to find a new perspective, capture a fleeting scene and turn moments into memories. As we work to relaunch the MATC Times website and grow our staff, I want to make joining our team as positive a learning experience and beneficial a work experience as possible. I strongly believe in the power of collaboration and inclusivity. As an Editor, I actively encourage diverse perspectives. Each student's unique viewpoint enriches our storytelling and fosters a sense of unity within our community. I aim to bridge the gap between words and images, revealing the untold stories that shape our community.
