Story Idea
Campus and Eau Claire community members are sharing lunches and conversations with 15 international students as part of the "English Table" lunch program this summer. Students from three countries who are in UW-Eau Claire's English Language Academy Intensive English Program are participating in the program. The lunches give IEP students opportunities to meet new people, share cultural insights and practice their English. Anyone is welcome to join the group for lunch. Lunches run from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday through July 10 in the Terrace Dining Room, second floor of Davies Center. The IEP is a collaborative effort among Continuing Education, the department of foreign language and the Center for International Education. For more information about the "English Table" program, contact Jean Peterson in Continuing Education at (715) 836-4648 or Kelly Wonder will be the on-site contact during the "English Table" lunches.

Story Idea
UW-Eau Claire's College of Business is part of the UW Internet Business Consortium, allowing students to earn their MBAs by taking classes on campus or via the Internet. The online option helps people with work and family commitments earn an MBA without requiring them to come to campus. The College of Business will host an open house to share information about MBA options from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, June 26, in the Hormel Lab in Schneider Hall. For more information, contact Bob Erffmeyer at (715) 836-4644 or
