In one sentence, what is your advice to your peers about succeeding in college?: Stay focused on the task at hand, but also know when to let loose and have some fun!
What is one"Fun Fact" about you: One thing few people know about me, is that I am usually a very shy and backward person, but being here at UWS where everyone is so nice and caring, it makes it so easy to really just be myself.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs is incredibly excited to announce our new "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 are interested in participating in the Student Spotlight please contact Ivy Vainio at 715-394-8415 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
