What drew you to UW-Superior? I was looking for a school in the United States where I could grow up intellectually, socially, and morally and achieve my academic goals. Also, an alumni of UW-Superior who happens to be my brother told me that UW-Superior is the place to be if I want to get all of those things plus extra fun, and actually he wasn't wrong!!

What organizations/extracurricular activities are you a part of and or/planning to be a part of? World student association, Black student union, Science Club and I'm planning to be part of the Intramural In-door Soccer.

What are you looking forward to most during this academic year? Adapting myself to the community and the new lifestyle and give out my best in everything that I do!!!

One fun fact about you? I like to draw, portrait most often and I would like to learn painting. I like singing and listening to music, Il Divo and Josh Groban are my favorites. I love dancing and playing soccer!! The list can continue...

Returning Student:

ernErn (Nutcha) Charoenboon

Hometown: Bangkok, Thailand

Class: Sophomore

Major/Minor: Biology & Broad Field Science/Chemistry

What drew you to UW-Superior? The first thing that drew me to UWS was its amazing International Program! Then followed many things like class size, close relationship between students and faculty, cultural diversity, amazing people, and the unique opportunities to do things around here. I also LOVE the Natural Sciences Department!

What student organizations/extracurricular activities are you to a part of/planning to be a part of? I am a Senator of the Natural Sciences, Math, and HHP Departments in the Student Government Association, an executive board member of Students of Science and World Student Association. I'm a part of the UWS A'Cappella Choir, Yellow Jacket Activities Crew, and Pre-Med Club. I'm a Resident Assistant in the Residence Hall as well!

What are you looking forward to most during this upcoming year? All the classes that I'm taking this semester are really interesting and I cannot wait to learn more about them! I love all of my wonderful friends so I'm glad to get to be with them and also make new friends. I am also excited to see the change in myself at the end of the semester and I'm going to try my hardest to do good things to create positive impact on people and things around me.

In one sentence, what is your advice to your peers about succeeding in college? Never ever ever give up! Always be patient and keep positive attitude. Take all the opportunities that come into your life because you can learn so much from them. And just ENJOY! Whoa… that was more than one sentence!

In one or two sentences, give us one "Fun Fact" about you (i.e. this could be a hobby, talent, interest etc). Most people know me for my energy!! (This is proven by how I end most of my sentences with the exclamation points!) I love getting to know people and making them happy! (: I enjoy stargazing, singing, and cleaning (it satisfies my OCDness). I used to dream to become an astronaut but then I decided that I love working with people more than in the lab. After graduating from UWS, I'm planning on attending graduate school to become a dentist. My dream job is to volunteer or work for non-profit organization!

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is incredibly excited to announce our new "Student Spotlight" program.
