The finance program was a good balance of theory and applicable real-world skills, which was important to me.

At UW-Superior, Cameron Lee ‘20 found the perfect combination of education and athletics. When former Yellowjacket baseball coach – and current director of athletics, Nick Bursik, expressed interest in adding Cameron to the team, the native of South Africa knew he had found an environment in which he would be comfortable, grow as a baseball player, and receive a top education.

“The finance program was a good balance of theory and applicable real-world skills, which was important to me,” says Cameron, who received scholarship support during his time at UW-Superior. “When I visited the campus in February 2016, I was particularly attracted to the friendliness of the people and the opportunities that the Twin Ports promised for varied experiences. I was excited at the prospect of experiences very different from what I was used to in South Africa.”

Although thousands of miles away from home, Cameron found a supportive network that not only included his teammates, but faculty and staff as well. “There's too many to name them all, but Dr. Rubana Mahjabeen really pushed me to pick up a second major in economics and supported me a lot once I did,” says Cameron, who has plans to pursue his master’s degree in finance.
