Making History

Meet Scott Barrell: a former student whose research led to a bow and arrow showdown in the campus quad. Scott isn’t your average college student; he’s a bright and hardworking individual who wanted to be challenged, so he tackled ground-breaking research and found someone on campus to help him do it.

#EachForEqual: Celebrating International Women’s Day at UW-Green Bay

Although it’s a relatively new holiday, International Women’s Day is a transformational celebration of all the achievements and strengths that women everywhere bring to their societies.

All of my sisters commuted to college, so for me to be the first one to move out was a crazy concept for us to wrap our heads around. My house was always loud and boisterous but most of that was because I was living in it. Yes, I sang every day at the top of my lungs and yes I was the loudest storyteller, so it was difficult to imagine any form of quiet in our house after I left. It was crazy how a decision I felt so certain about could become such a gray area in a matter of a few months. And really all I needed was this summer to have that effect.
