UWM SA dedicates bike loan through ceremony

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Student Association will be hosting a bike loan program dedication ceremony in the Union’s Alumni Fireside Lounge Monday, August 28, 2006 at 4 p.m.

The UWM Bike Loan Program has transitioned from an Eastside Transportation Management Association subcommittee to an in-house operation.

The program loans bikes out to UWM students with the intent of reducing automobile traffic around the university. On April 23, 2006 the SA Senate passed legislation which authorized the SA to give $15,000 to the Union Outing Center.

That money has increased the size and scope of the program, and allowed 50 additional bikes to be purchased, ensuring the continuity of the program. The bikes will be loaned, free of charge, to UWM students at the onset of the fall semester.

UWM students, university officials and neighborhood leaders are all invited to witness the SA dedication of the $15,000 to the Union Outing Center. Among those invited are Third District Ald. Michael D’Amato, State Rep. Jon Richards and UWM Chancellor Dr. Carlos Santiago.

“This is a great way for the students, university, and community to come together to try to alleviate the parking problem around the UWM campus,” said SA president Samantha Prahl. “I am very excited to work with both university officials and neighborhood groups this year. This is a very positive way to start off the new school year.”

There will be a dedication ceremony with refreshments that follow. Please contact the SA office at (414) 229-4366 for more information.
