"The Arts Management program at UW-Green Bay was a field that I was very interested in during my time as an undergraduate, and is proving to be more fascinating to me each day. After graduating from UW-Green Bay in December of 2007 with a minor in Arts Management, I moved to Nashville in hopes to further pursue my passion for the arts. Professor Rosewall is an advocate for the arts and her passion inspired me to continue to explore the Arts Management field beyond graduation.
After completing an internship with GMA (Gospel Music Association), I was hired as a part-time Floor Manager at the TPAC (TN Performing Arts Center), and recently moved into the Assistant House Manager position.
I believe the Arts Management program at UW-Green Bay is a great asset to the University and I am excited for those who will prosper from the program and do great things in the arts!"

"There is no part of the Arts Management program that I didn't enjoy or learn from tremendously. The Arts Management program allowed me to study the ins and outs of arts organizations, learning everything from grant writing and financial management to media releases and press conferences. The hands-on experience I gained working in my internship was invaluable. I learned so many skills and had the opportunity to work hands-on in an Arts Management organization. There isn't a day that goes by now that I don't use my Arts Management education in the workplace."

"At my internship at the Fox Cities PAC, I got to make memories of getting to stand on the stage of the beautiful theatre, finding the secret passageways around the Center, meeting some incredible people, and most of all -- learning more valuable skills to help finish my college career and start my work experience in the 'real' world."

"The arts management program has allowed me to pursue my love of contemporary art by doing an internship in London. I worked in the education department of the Saatchi gallery-the world's foremost gallery of contemporary art. While there I got to give tours and talks to students visiting the gallery all while soaking up British culture and enjoying London."
