  • Gabrielle White
    Blugold shares family's traditions, culture through dance
    Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017

    Like many Blugolds, Gabrielle White values the traditions — as well as the heirlooms — her family has passed down from generation to generation. However, unlike most of her Blugold peers, Gabrielle gets to share her cherished family traditions and treasures with the UW-Eau Claire campus and greater Eau Claire communities. Since she was a teen, the junior psychology major from Black River Falls has been among the dancers at UW-Eau Claire’s annual Honoring Education Powwow. This year, she was the head dancer at the powwow on her campus.

  • Blugold Bobbie Schultz
    A birthday gift grows into thriving business for local Blugold
    Friday, Nov. 3, 2017

    Sometimes a gift really does keep on giving. Just ask Bobbie Schultz, a soon-to-be UW-Eau Claire graduate who has been running her own business for years thanks to a long-ago birthday present from her mom. The Blugold — who will graduate in December after just 2½ years with a degree in business management — was turning 7 when her mom gave her a chinchilla, a lovable creature that quickly captured Bobbie’s heart. Fourteen years later, the Blugold entrepreneur is a certified chinchilla breeder who sells more than 300 of the animals a year through her business, “Bobbie’s Chinchillas.”

  • Dorn-Fernandez family
    Study abroad plays special part in mother, daughter college experiences
    Friday, Nov. 3, 2017

    Turns out there might just be something to that old proverb, "Like mother, like daughter." At least if you are Amy Dorn-Fernandez and Miranda Fernandez and you are thinking about your futures. Both came to UW-Eau Claire — though decades apart — because of the university’s reputation for offering exceptional study abroad programs. Amy got more than she expected from her time studying in Spain — she fell in a love, eventually marrying a young Spaniard. Twenty-plus years later, their daughter, Miranda, is a Blugold and already looking forward to studying abroad in Spain.

    Blugolds study the power of music to influence political, social movements
    Monday, Oct. 30, 2017

    For centuries, artists throughout the world have used their music to entertain but also to make powerful statements about the political and social movements going on around them. While plenty of world-renowned musicians — think U2 or Bob Dylan — are famous for championing their political and social causes, there are countless lesser-known artists also using their music to make their voices heard in countries around the globe. Five UW-Eau Claire student researchers and two faculty members recently spent time with some of those artists in West Africa, interviewing activists who use hip-hop and rap music as a form of non-violent protest in the country of Senegal.
