UW-Green Bay graduating senior Gage Beck, a Public Administration major in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, graduated today, Dec. 18, 2021, after five semesters with no debt and has secured a job after graduation as grants manager for the Green Bay YMCA.
The West De Pere High School graduate got a jumpstart, taking several college courses in high school and taking extra credits each semester throughout his time at UW-Green Bay. By living at home and working at the University Union, Beck will graduate debt-free! He points to the real-life learning opportunities that propelled his interest, and likely a job in his chosen field:
“The most challenging yet rewarding part of studying at UW-Green Bay was focusing on my major,” Gage said. “Through the support of my professors, I was able to challenge myself in researching and analyzing public issues. I was fortunate enough to have two internships, a research assistantship, and participate in the Political Science Research Lab. I am honored to have received the recognition of Outstanding Student in Public and Environmental Affairs, the Center for Public Affairs Research Scholarship, and the Chancellor’s Leadership Medallion. As a result of my internship at the Greater Green Bay YMCA, I have accepted the full-time position of Grants Manager which I will start in January.”
