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 isnt 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 crews presence at that
nights 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.
Miss Wisconsin return to alma mater
Two of UW-Green Bays 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.
fundraiser warms hearts, stomachs
It has grown to be one of UW-Green Bays most popular lunch dates. Hundreds
turned out for The Empty Bowls Chili Sale in the Studio Arts cafeteria on March
24. Donated chili from Patricks 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.
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."

M.S.W. Program offered jointly by UW-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh. Most classes
are held at UW-Fox Valley in Menasha; previously, master's of social work hopefuls
had to commute to Madison or Milwaukee.
