Dinner with the Professor!

Thank you to all who were able to come enjoy some hot dogs and Brats with Dale Henze! It seemed like everyone who attended had a good time talking with Dale and hearing some funny stories! For those of you who did catch his position here at UWP, he is a School of Education senior Lecturer. After retiring from being a middle school principal in Illinois, Dale was asked to come to Platteville to teach introductory education courses, while along the way picking a couple extra up. dale has many years of wisdom regarding the education field and he is always happy to share his experiences with his students. If you’ve had the opportunity to have him for a class, then you know this. If you currently are a student of his and want to get to know him better stop by his office, and he’ll talk your ear right off.

Again thank you to all who attended the event tonight! If you have any questions regarding Dale or want his information stop by and I can point you in his direction.



Art with Carole Spelic

Check out this recycled art project that we did yesterday with Carole Spelic, a professor from the art department! We took old magazines, tore them in pieces and had a little piece of each strip showing. Then we made cut out designs on black paper that was layed on top of the magazine strips so just bits and pieces of the color showed through. Everyones projects turned out super cool!

If you see Carole on campus don’t be afraid to go talk to her especially if it art related! She had lots of tips and tricks yesterday and she enjoyed sharing them with us! If you are interested in doing the art project that we did last night, want to know more about Carole, or about the art department, come talk to me and I’ll point you in the right direction!
Thanks to those of you that came to the event last night!


Dr. Fields

Dr. Fields is one of my civil engineering  professors and she has a lot of great advice when it comes to academics and she is fun to talk with outside of class.  Check out the bulletin board I made on her! The bulletin board includes some information about her, her hobbies, thinks she likes, who she is on this campus, her tips for students in any major, and some information about a study abroad trip she is leading at the beginning of this summer!

If you are interested in this study abroad trip you can come talk to me or talk to Dr. Fields.

I really encourage you to get to know at least one of your professors really well each semester. It helps you do better in that class because you are more likely to ask the questions you have and it makes class more fun when you know that you can relate to a professor outside of the classroom.


Studying and Working Abroad with Dr. Tas!

Sinan Tas

Hey 4 South! It was super cool having Dr. Tas come and talk about his experiences with traveling knowledge of working abroad. He grew up in Istanbul, Turkey and worked for their navy before coming to the US 15 years ago. He has had the opportunity to travel all over the world and learn many languages. He highly encourages taking this time to travel and appreciate diversity before settling down. If you have any interest in working or studying abroad, check out the Education Abroad program that Platteville has.



Dairy Facts with Dr. Montgomery


Hey 4 South! Dr. Montgomery came to talk about misconceptions of the dairy industry. It was really neat to hear about how much science and precaution goes into dairy. WI is also the 4th largest producer of milk in the world! Another fun fact we learned is that around 80% of milk in WI goes to making cheese. I hope you all support WI and eat your dairy!
