CJ Blog

Throughout my time at UWEC, I have had so many amazing experiences. Studying abroad in Guatemala, working on campus with Blugold Beginnings, being involved in the American Marketing Association and conducting research in my CJ capstone class. UW-Eau Claire has allowed me to meet my best friends, discover my passions and prepared me for the real world.
