20/20' tags along with visiting lecturer
Sometime in April, if you watch “20/20” and look very closely, those who know UW-Green Bay quite well might recognize some familiar settings. A crew for the ABC-News show came to campus for video of Michael Leahy, a rising star on the college lecture circuit who warns against Internet addiction and adult content. UW-Green Bay isn’t considered a hotbed — the Midwest-based crew simply found it a convenient place to meet up with Leahy — but the media entourage did call attention to his Monday lecture. Here, a videographer captures generic, computer-lab “b-roll” of students who will not be identifiable in the final edit. Producer Susan Welsh (photo on cover)took time to visit with a television production class. Her crew’s presence at that night’s lecture only confirmed what the 400 students and community members in attendance already knew: UW-Green Bay is on the cutting edge in bringing topical, high-profile figures to campus.

Lt. Governor, Miss Wisconsin return to alma mater
Two of UW-Green Bay’s more prominent former students returned to campus last week to headline a campus reception spotlighting “Women in Science.” Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton described her statewide initiative Wisconsin Women = Prosperity. Dr. Tina Sauerhammer, the reigning Miss Wisconsin, spoke briefly about her platform promoting organ donation and recollections of her undergraduate career. Sauerhammer was selected the outstanding graduating senior at UW-Green Bay when she completed majors in Human Biology and Human Development in 1999 at age 18, and she became the youngest graduate of the UW Medical School in May 2003. Posing here are Dean Carol Blackshire-Belay, Associate Dean Joyce Salisbury, Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton and Dr. Tina Sauerhammer.

Chili/bowls fundraiser warms hearts, stomachs
It has grown to be one of UW-Green Bay’s most popular lunch dates. Hundreds turned out for The Empty Bowls Chili Sale in the Studio Arts cafeteria on March 24. Donated chili from Patrick’s on the Bay, Kavarna, Titletown Brewery and Legends, as well as bread from Uprisings, was on the menu. Also available were some 300 ceramic bowls made by UW-Green Bay art students and faculty. Customers made a donation, selected a unique bowl, filled it with the chili of their choice, cleaned their plates and brought home the artwork. The take was $2,100 in cash with prospects for a matching grant to double the donation to local hunger relief efforts. Art Prof. Curt Heuer says the event helps alert student artists to their ability to make an impact in the community.

"Location was the biggest thing, for me. I've always known I wanted to do this (pursue a master's of social work), but when you're working a lot it's difficult to commute a great distance. Another plus here is that with the collaborative program, you're enjoying resources and expertise from both universities."

Most classes are held at UW-Fox Valley in Menasha; previously, master's of social work hopefuls had to commute to Madison or Milwaukee.
