And the other extraculicullar is Jitters coffee lounge. Jitters are a student-run coffee house located on the first floor of Wells East Residence Hall. It was opened with the intention of creating a lasting, strong, and vital sense of community. The next is Ceramics Guild.

Fraternities and sororities have long been a part of UW-Whitewater’s campus life.
