How UW budget cuts and layoffs are affecting students
Student journalists from UW–Oshkosh and UW–River Falls join us for a roundtable about how budget cuts and layoffs throughout the university system are affecting students on their campuses.
Women learn outdoors skills together at Wisconsin workshops
Outdoor activities like hunting and fishing have long been dominated by men, but a Wisconsin program provides opportunities for women to get started—with the help of other women. Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshops started at UW-Stevens Point in 1991, and they have since spread to 35 U.S. states and 6 Canadian provinces. We talk to the director of the international BOW program and coordinator of workshops held in Wisconsin about what the program offers and how to get involved.
