UW-Eau Claire has given me the opportunity to compete in the sport that I love while pushing me to excel within the classroom. It provided me with friends, teammates, colleagues and professors who have greatly impacted my life and truly care for me. The memories I’ve made on this campus will be with me forever, and the lessons I’ve learned will continue to shape me as I take the next steps in my professional career. Forever proud to be a Blugold.
