Matthew Glowacki

I’m prepared to go into the real world. The great instructors taught me the core skills needed for both the transportation industry and life.
Connecting with others is the highlight of many college experiences, and for Matthew Glowacki, his experience was no exception. Though, he claims he had many more opportunities to make connections than other students.  

“Being a part of the Transportation and Logistics Management program, I got very close with all the students,” said Matthew. “The small classes made it possible for those one-on-one connections.” 

The Transportation and Logistics Club also helped Matthew make personal connections. Professionals from the Twin Ports area and around the U.S. come to speak and network with students in the club, and the students work together to coordinate these meetings. 

“The club is very active. We had monthly meetings, and our guest speakers would enrich our education even more,” he said. “It feels great to have had all of these experiences. There are a lot of great takeaways.” 

Matthew has gotten to go on numerous tours and company visits during his time at UW-Superior as well, and he appreciates the education he received both inside and outside the classroom.  

“I’m prepared to go into the real world. The great instructors taught me the core skills needed for both the transportation industry and life,” he said. “The instructors are so passionate. Thanks to them and the program, I’ve grown so much.” 

Matthew was very involved in his program and to gain an exceptional college experience, and he recommends that everyone do the same.  

“I even wish I would have done more. Get involved! There is a lot of great support here for students,” Matthew said. “Everyone cares about your struggles and not many colleges can say that.” 

Through his many connections, Matthew landed an internship in St. Paul with the intermodal division of the company J.B. Hunt Transport’s intermodal division of the company, and he’s excited to take what he’s learned from UW-Superior and apply it to real life. Matthew also accepted a full time position within the company and will be working as a fleet manager after the completion of his internship. 

“I look forward to learning even more from this company to see if this is where I want to be in the industry,” he said. “There are five modes of transportation, and this internship only works with two - trucking and rails. Once I spend some time in the field, I’ll find out if this is the right fit for me or not.”
