    Students help verify Holocaust survivor stories
    Thursday, March 16, 2017

    When UW-Eau Claire faculty and geography students joined an international research team that located a tunnel prisoners used to escape from the Nazis in Lithuania during the Holocaust, they accomplished much more than simply finding a hidden passageway. They helped to verify Holocaust survivors’ stories of their dramatic escape from an execution site where an estimated 100,000 people died during World War II.

    Blugolds build inexpensive, efficient solar-powered water heater
    Tuesday, March 14, 2017

    When Dr. Kim Pierson began teaching a new class about renewable energies, he used some inexpensive materials he found at a local store to build a small model of a solar thermal water heater that he could use in his laboratory. The UW-Eau Claire physics professor quickly realized that his model — if built to a much larger scale — actually has a lot of potential for use in the real world.

    Gaining global perspective by studying geography, culture in Ecuador
    Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017

    Can the actions of one Blugold make an impact globally? Brian Kraegenbrink thinks so. After living with a host family in the Amazonian rainforest in Ecuador, the UW-Eau Claire geography major now is considering how he can facilitate change through his day-to-day actions, as well as how he might use his college degree to make a difference in the lives of people living in underprivileged communities around the globe. His homestay was part of a three-week immersion program in Ecuador, an experience he says gave him a peek into the global capitalist system in which the world operates, and an up-close look at how consumer demand and westernization can leave some populations marginalized and living in poverty with little chance for change.

  • Blugold Hailey Nelson (right) and her host sister spent time at her host family’s home making necklaces during Nelson’s immersion program in Ecuador. The necklaces were for the traditional Kichwa dance that was held later that day.
    Why do the liberal arts matter?
    Monday, Feb. 27, 2017

    Hailey Nelson, a communication sciences and disorders major, knew she wanted to have an international experience during her college years, but with a packed schedule, finding time to study abroad was a challenge if she wanted to graduate on time. So when she discovered a three-week Winterim program in Ecuador she jumped at the chance to immerse herself in a new culture. The catch? The immersion program and prerequisite course, “Culture and Geography in Ecuador,” were clearly outside her usual academic sphere. She enrolled anyway, and soon discovered the impact the liberal arts could have on her future plans as a speech pathologist.

    Immersion fosters Blugold connections with Somali community
    Monday, Feb. 13, 2017

    Growing up in a Twin Cities suburb, Connor Zielinski was aware that there was a large Somali community in Minneapolis, yet he knew little about the people who live there. As immigration and other issues touching on diverse populations, including his Somali neighbors, became part of the rhetoric in state and national elections last fall, Zielinski — a UW-Eau Claire freshman with an interest in politics — realized he didn’t understand enough about the issues or diverse cultures to join the conversation in a meaningful way. So he decided to do something about it.
