UW-Milwaukee Field Trip

On Friday, October 25th, a group of DECA/Business/Marketing students from Waukesha West, Waukesha South, and Waukesha North High School took a Field Trip to UW Milwaukee’s Lubar School of Business. Students were given an overview on how to select a major and/or career path in business and then given a Residence Hall Tour where students were able to see the living areas and resource centers in Sandburg Hall. Teaching Assistant Valerie Armstrong then led a detailed discussion on accounting courses and the process of working with teaching assistants.

After eating lunch in the Student Union, Academic Advisor Chris Paul discussed program planning and provided additional academic resources for the students. Professor Sean McCarthy also provided additional oversight on the demands of different business courses. Mr. Quincy LaGrant, Undergraduate Recruitment Coordinator, did a great job leading an engaging discussion on student’s pursuing careers that interest them.

Huge thanks to Mr. LaGrant for arranging the tour with the students!
