STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

HAWKIN SAEGER ’21 MAJOR: DATA ANALYTICS ANALYST FOR STRATEGY AND ANALYTICS LUCID IN SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH

“UW-Stevens Point is a great university to attend if you are looking to grow as a well-rounded professional and a better individual. The faculty challenged me every day to think critically and creatively about real-world applications. Not only do they have an incredible curriculum, but I was introduced to many business leaders.” BRENDYN FORD ’19 MAJORS: BUSINESS ADMIN; ECONOMICS BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT REPRESENTATIVE SALESFORCE IN BATAVIA, ILLINOIS

“I was drawn to the data analytics program at UW-Stevens Point because of the chance to join an exciting and exploding field. The combination of courses in business, statistics and coding/analytics really helped me become a well-rounded professional. The professors relay the content with real-world examples and datasets to dive into. Not to mention UW-Stevens Point has a great multitude of options outside of courses. This program helped me land a full-time position as data analyst prior to even graduating!”

KEIANA “KAE” JAMES ’21 MAJOR: MANAGEMENT EMERGENCY DISASTER RELIEF SPECIALIST AMERICAN RED CROSS IN MILWAUKEE

Keiana “Kae” James didn’t even know UW-Stevens Point was an option until a campus recruiter arrived at her high school in Milwaukee. That visit turned out to be game-changer. “Had I gone to my school of choice, I never would have graduated,”

“Faculty cared so much about me, not just as a student but as a person.” She also met with her adviser to discuss dropping out, but the response Kae received shifted to what could UWSP do to help her succeed. “Had I been at one of the larger schools I originally planned to attend, I would have been lost in the crowd. No one would have been invested in my success like the faculty and staff at UW-Stevens Point.”
