Tanner Olson

I’m from the small town of Almond, WI (It’s nuts). My journey in pursuit of knowledge led me to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP), where I graduated in 2018. During my time at UWSP, I not only received a top-notch education but also discovered my passions for writing, reading, and immersing myself in the captivating world of cinema. As a devoted movie buff, I’m always on the lookout for the next cinematic masterpiece to indulge in.

Following my graduation, I embarked on an unforgettable adventure with the Peace Corps, where I served as an English teacher in their TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) program. This experience allowed me to broaden my horizons, immerse myself in diverse cultures, and make a positive impact through education.

Now back in the welcoming embrace of UWSP, I’m thrilled to contribute to the institution that played a pivotal role in shaping my academic and personal growth. Whether it’s engaging students in the classroom or collaborating with colleagues, I’m dedicated to fostering a dynamic and inclusive learning environment.

You can find me diving into the pages of a captivating novel, or losing myself in the magic of cinema. These pursuits not only fuel my creativity but also provide moments of respite in an increasingly busy world.

Piece of advice: Make time to do things that bring you fulfillment.
What he wanted to be growing up: A screenwriter 
What he enjoys about UWSP: The campus is smaller and easier to traverse than other schools, everything you need is always nearby. This is especially nice in the cold months.

Favorite place on campus and why: The Brewhaus is my favorite place on campus! Great coffee and themed drinks as well as a good place to study.
