UW-L names Student Employee of the Year

It wasn’t an easy decision for the staff of UW-L’s Rec Sports Department to pick just one of their 75 employees to nominate for the Student Employee of the Year Award.

“All of them are very committed and engaged in everything they do as a staff members,” says Mo McAlpine, Associate Director of Rec Sports, “but Zach Scola I think is really the epitome of that.”


“Truly, I have not witnessed such commitment in my 24 years of supervision,” says McAlpine.

Zach will graduate this May with a degree in sports management. He is moving on to graduate school in Kansas to pursue sports management.

“I’d love to work in facility or event management,” says Zach. “I enjoy sports. I enjoy events. I love it.”

Six other students were nominated for the award:
Amanda De Cora, Records & Registration
Joshua Gran, It Make$ Cents! Money Management Center
Sasha Jascor, Microbiology Department
Kristin Kotzer, Office of Residence Life
Sammy Xiong-Vue, Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department
Hanqing Wu, University Communications

Sum of Excellence: Improving the equation

The UW System Board of Regents is presenting members of the UW-L Math Department a 2015 Teaching Excellence Award at UW-Waukesha today. It’s the only department in the system earning the recognition this year.

Many of the math offices can be found on the first floor of Cowley Hall. Only a few stories up is the biology department, which received the same honor in 2013. But as time goes by, those flights of stairs seemingly shrink as members of both departments find more opportunities for collaboration.

The two departments have a weekly research seminar that meets the increased need for statistical methods in the study of natural phenomena.

Dozens of UW-L students share their research

Thirty UW-La Crosse students presented their research at the Celebration of Student Research & Creativity Friday, April 3, on campus. Topics ranged from microbiology to modern language. In addition to oral presentations, the celebration included 127 student poster displays and three visual arts exhibits.
