My name is Racquel Kaizer and I am a junior student here at the university. I'm a chemistry major. I'm involved in the premed club, WSA, and students of science. A few of my hobbies and interests are cooking, bowling, and watching medicine related TV shows. My favorite place on campus is student support services because it doesn't matter what your major is, you will ALWAYS get all the help you need. I'm really excited to do this because it will be fun!
Hi, my name is Joseph and I am going to UWS to become a teacher. I like helping others and consider myself to be rather enthusiastic. I enjoy card games, cooking, and long walks on the beach.
Hi, my name is James. I'm a non-traditional student at the age of 27. I love MMORPG's, football, basketball, and fishing. I am majoring in legal studies. I eventually hope to get a J.D. and become a lawyer.
I'm a sophomore majoring in Sociology. I love meeting new people and having tons of fun! The best thing about UW-Superior is the small campus environment. I cannot wait to show you all the wonderful opportunities as well!
