What activities/organizations are you involved in?
Other than being a Campus Ambassador, I'm a member of the UW-Eau Claire Sales Team, Golden Key International Honour Society, and I have the great privilege to be a captain of one of the greatest organizations on campus...the Cheer and Stunt Team! What could be better than spending your free time doing flips and throwing girls up in the air?  Stop by anytime during one of our open gyms in McPhee; we love visitors!

What's your favorite Blugold tradition?
Homecoming week is an awesome time to be a Blugold. Between the "Yell Like Hell Pep Rally," Homecoming football game, and all of the other fun activities happening on campus, it’s an entire week of non-stop action!

When thinking about our campus, what makes it feel like home?
One specific worker on lower campus has become a celebrity to the students of Eau Claire. Who knew how much one simple “Thank You” would affect so many people?  I don’t need to name this sweet lady because every student on campus knows who I’m talking about, and hopefully every new student will soon learn her identity as well!

Best place to eat on campus?
All you can eat burgers and fries, pizza, desserts, fresh fruit, and an endless supply of milk...the cafeteria is the place to be!

Why did you choose UWEC?
It’s a pretty long story, but one I’d be glad to tell over a cup of coffee some morning.  I actually didn’t know anything about UWEC until the day I arrived my freshman year.  I guess that qualifies UWEC as the biggest gamble I’ve ever taken, but it sure has paid off!

Finish the following sentence: YOU feel Blugold pride when…
Cheering on the Blugold football or basketball teams along with the help of the largest Division III marching band in the nation!

Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
