University of Wisconsin-River Falls
March and April will see a series of five special public events as part of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls "Year of South Korea" program. Since the summer of 2017, UW-River Falls has highlighted collaborations and exchanges with South Korea, culminating in last month's women's hockey game between the Falcons and the South Korean national team. In March and April, the focus shifts to innovation and public policy in a series of free public lectures and discussions both on campus and at the River Falls Public Library. Here's a look at the upcoming schedule:
University of Wisconsin-River Falls alumni David and Patricia Stone have made a generous gift of $100,000 to the university to establish the Stone Geology Fund. The fund will support scholarships, equipment, student recruitment and program activities in geology.
"Silent Sky" will be performed by the University Theatre at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls on Feb. 22-24 and March 1-3 in the Blanche Davis Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and are open to the public.
What's it like to live and work at one of the most extreme places on earth? University of Wisconsin Physics Professor Suruj Seunarine and University of Chicago undergraduate Lindsay Berkhout can now tell you. They are working on a National Science Foundation project studying solar storms using detectors at the Amundsen-Scott Station at the South Pole.
The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles may be ready to meet Sunday in Minneapolis in the Super Bowl, but one graduate of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls is more concerned about those who have no home field — or home — to call their own. Michael Mader has formed a thriving e-commerce business known as Hippy Feet. It's dedicated to serving the homeless, and he's using the Super Bowl buildup to get his message across.
