A group of 10 UW-Green Bay students joined a multinational Habitat for Humanity Coalition this summer, embarking on a Global Village trip to the typhoon-ravaged Philippines to build both homes and lifelong memories.

Terry Fulwiler had every reason to believe that a career in aerospace engineering would take him on an incredible life journey. The native of Algoma, Wis., had a gift for math and a love of flying instilled by his father. The timing was right — the aerospace industry in the mid-1960s was booming. At 18, […]
How does a shy aspiring fashion designer choose to major in Political Science and Public Administration, develop a passion for providing affordable housing for low-income families, become a peer mentor for a freshman seminar, and lead a high-profile annual event for her sorority?
