Blugolds learn to help children with trauma return to the classroom
Blugolds Nicole Fox and Emma Nickerson are pursuing different majors, but a UW-Eau Claire summer immersion program that took them to a children’s hospital in California helped them discover how closely their paths may interact in the future. Fox, Nickerson and eight other Blugolds were part of the Shriners Children’s Hospital-Northern California immersion program that gave the students hands-on experiences working with diverse youth who had a significant burn or orthopedic trauma.
International Fellows Program helps Blugold discover his roots
Since coming to the United States, Sergei Raspel always wanted to visit his home country of Russia and explore the culture where he was born, but he never had the opportunity. This summer, Sergei was given the chance to visit Russia for three weeks thanks to UW-Eau Claire’s International Fellows Program.
