Christopher Hibbard.“To come back and see your name on a door where you used to have classes, and work with former faculty
members as peers feels sort of surreal... Actually it’s the ultimate type of flattery to get asked back to teach at your alma mater. I’m having a great time coming back.”

Christopher Hibbard, a 2001 graduate of UW-Green Bay’s Theatre program, on returning as a guest lecturer and director for Prof. Laura Riddle, who is on sabbatical. He directs ‘The Laramie Project’ this week.

UW-Green Bay’s tsunami relief effort
has fisheries focus

Working with numerous UW-Green Bay student organizations, student Dushani Corea-Dharmaratne is organizing “Tsunami Relief Effort — Students United” to assist the fishing industry in the Sri Lankan coastal area of Moratuwa. The effort will raise money to help members of the fishing community get back in business.
    “They lost their homes, boats and fishing gear,” Dushani said. “They want basically to get back their way of life, and to feed their families.”
    Dushani will make two public presentations on the UW-Green Bay campus about her home country and the impact of the tsunami. The first presentation is 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 2 in Phoenix Room B of the University Union. The second is at noon Thursday, March 3 in the Christie Theater of the University Union.
    To donate or to learn more about “Tsunami Relief Effort — Students United,” contact the UW-Green Bay Office of Student Life at 465-2200, extension 40.

For her, National Geographic is new chapter

Jenny Faubert knew it was a long shot when she applied for the National Geographic summer internship in Washington D.C. After all, only six college students are selected nationally, and a UW-Green Bay student had never received the honor.
    Then came the surprise of her life. “I was in shock,” she says. “They called my cell phone and told me who they were. I was speechless.”
    Faubert, a senior urban and regional studies major from Green Bay, will travel to D.C. this summer to intern in the photography section of the magazine. Her responsibilities will include finding the photo of the day, which is the most popular feature on www.nationalgeographic.com, and creating a photo gallery of her own.
    UW-Green Bay Profs. Marcelo Cruz and William Laatsch were among those who encouraged her to pursue the internship based on her academic performance and potential.
    “I think this is my stepping stone to what I eventually want to do in my career,” says Faubert, who lists study-abroad tours in Europe and South America as college highlights. “I would eventually like to work for a tourist-travel magazine.”
    For now, though, she plans to enjoy her last semester of college while anticipating this chance of a lifetime.
    “I’m probably going to be in shock until I get there,” she says. “It verifies that all the hard work I’ve done in college really has paid off — that’s the biggest thing for me.”
