Students and Recent Graduates Gain National Recognition

A rigorous academic school year for both students and faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point has led to impressive results. Three UW-Stevens Point history students were selected to take part in the Council Undergraduate Research Posters on the Hill event held in Washington D.C. John Lenz, Julienna Hagan, and Michael Bixby presented “UWSP Archives on East Asia: Analyzing Works from the Malcolm L. Rosholt Collection,” one of 74 projects chosen from more than 850 applications and just one of 12 posters based on humanities research.

UW-Stevens Point student Erica Swenson, a junior biochemistry major from Hayward, Wisconsin received the Goldwater Scholarship; an award considered the premier scholarship in science. The Goldwater Scholarship is given each year to undergraduate students with exceptional potential for a career in science. Swenson was selected from 1,123 students nominated by faculty members from the U.S.

Three recent alumni of UW-Stevens Point have been awarded funding for graduate research through the National Science Foundation.  Alina Ott, Tracey Oudenhoven and Randall Siedschlag, all 2011 graduates now attending graduate school, were among the 2,000 students selected from across the United States for a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.

We congratulate these students and recent graduates for their remarkable achievements.
