Class Notes

What did you get from your time at UW-Stevens Point?

A new view of the world? An opportunity to study abroad? A chance to help others? A career? Chances are your experience at UW-Stevens Point shaped your life in an important way. Consider shaping the experience of today’s UW-Stevens Point students by making a gift that will contribute to their college experience. You have the flexibility to designate your gifts where you feel they are needed most:

Hello Pointers!

As we plan our fast approaching 2016-17 academic year, it’s always nice to reflect on the great things that happened in the past academic year. 

The top story of 2015-16 was Sentry Insurance's gift of $4 million to the university. The largest donation in the university’s 122-year history will endow two new faculty positions and create a new major in data analytics.

We held our first Kickstart Your Career Week. This event series was sponsored by Northwestern Mutual Insurance and alum Keith Anderson '85. The series was a huge success. The events helped our students prepare to transition from college life to young professionals in the workplace. We had well over 50 different business professionals participate in the events that week to engage with our students.
 
It’s wonderful to see our alumni and others in the regional business community engage and support our students. We will be continuing to grow and improve the opportunities for students to get direct insights and advice on entering the workplace. It’s great to see more and more students who are hired before graduation through efforts such as this.
 
Enjoy the remainder of your summer, and we look forward to sharing news again in the fall.
