One of the things that Jeremy Swick appreciates about UW-Eau Claire is its work to ensure that Blugolds have access to the kinds of internships that give students experiences that go far beyond fetching coffee. Yet for a couple of days during his Ohio-based internship, the history graduate student eagerly volunteered to fetch or deliver anything that was needed … well, at least anything needed by anyone associated with his much-loved Green Bay Packers. Jeremy was an intern at the Pro Football Hall of Fame the summer that his childhood hero, Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

As the holidays approach, UW-Eau Claire has a perfect gift idea: the centennial history book titled "Building Excellence: University of Eau Claire, 1916-2016."
