Allison Flaig and Scott Wallace (02-03-14)

The Office of Multicultural Affairs wants you to meet:

New Student:

Allison Flaig

Allison Flaig

Hometown: Duluth, MN

Year in School: Freshman

Major/Minor: Undeclared, but I am thinking of pursuing a Social Work or Education degree.

What drew you to UW-Superior?: Being from Duluth, I absolutely love the area, but I also wanted to have a chance to get away from home and see what it's like to be on my own. I also love the small feel of UWS, but I also feel like I have plenty of big opportunities to choose from here.

What student organizations/extracurricular activities are you a part of and/or planning to be a part of?: I am currently a mentor with the GEARS program. I am also connected with the Newman center here on campus. I would love to get more connected with RHA, and I have heard of a campus ambassador program that I would love to learn more about. I am open to just about any organization and I would really enjoy becoming a part of more because I think it's a great way to meet people and become more involved on our campus.

What are you looking forward to most during this upcoming year?: As an undeclared student, I am really looking forward to exploring my options for majors. As "dorky" as it may sound, I also really look forward to learning in all of my classes. I find true enjoyment in expanding my knowledge as much as I can. And of course, I'm excited to meet new people!

What is one "Fun Fact" about you?: In high school, I was a member of our trapshooting team and I loved it! I think it would be awesome to start a club like that here on campus.

 

Returning Student:

Scott Wallace

Scott Wallace      

Hometown: Duluth, Minnesota

Year in School: Senior

Major/Minor: Sociology major; Philosophy and Anthropology minor

What drew you to UW-Superior?: After graduating high school, I took some time off to sort myself out and work in the "real world." I never thought of myself as college material initially. It took the persuasion and pestering of nearly everyone I knew to convince me to go back to school. I saw that a few friends from high school were already going to UW-Superior, so I decided to check it out. In just a short time, I got enrolled and have been here ever since.

What student organizations/extracurricular activities are you a part of and/or planning to be a part of?: I am the Vice-President of the Anthropology/Sociology Club, member of WSA (World Student Association), and member of the Model UN Club (which is through IPSA - International Peace Studies Association). I volunteer for the Gender Equity Resource Center as well. Outside of school, I volunteer over at the Safe Haven Shelter and Resource Center in Duluth.

What are you looking forward to most during this upcoming year?: Where to begin? I am technically going super-senior this year, which will give me more time to work on my thesis. The Anthropology/Sociology Club is gearing up for a busy year, so stay tuned for any special events we have going on. I will be a teacher's assistant for the spring semester, which should be exciting and challenging.  

In one sentence, what is your advice to your peers about succeeding in college?: "Do not serve time, let time serve you."-Gregory Corso, poet

One "Fun Fact" about you?: I practice wing chun style of kung fu, albeit at a beginner's level.

Would you like to be in the "Student Spotlight"?

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is incredibly excited to announce the "Student Spotlight" program. We will spotlight both new and/or returning UW-Superior students each week throughout the academic year. We will spotlight these students on our office website, Facebook page, and student/staff digests.

UW-Superior students are the reason we are here and we truly want students to be successful. The Student Spotlight will help students to connect to various faculty, staff, students, and programs on this campus and vice-versa. Having these connections will help students become successful.

Students if you would like to participate in the "Student Spotlight" please answer the following information and e-mail to Ivy Vainio 715-394-8415.
