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.
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.”
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.
UW-Eau Claire geography students in a field studies class recently spent a day flying drones and using other high-end geospatial technologies at an Eau Claire area sand mine thanks to partnerships between the university and private businesses. The hands-on fieldwork at the Litchfield Mine gave Blugolds a “rare opportunity” to use and evaluate an array of sophisticated field equipment, the kinds of equipment that’s already being used in the private sector, including the mining industry, says Dr. Joseph Hupy, associate professor of geography.
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.
UW-Eau Claire junior Madisyn Hammick always dreamed of traveling to Asia, and those dreams came true after she decided to study abroad in Thailand. Along the way, Madisyn was awarded the prestigious Freeman-Asia Award for the fall semester.

For the second consecutive year, photos of the UW-Eau Claire campus taken by student Matt Schrupp are included in the USA Today’s College Guide, a magazine that profiles nearly 500 colleges and universities across the country.
