UW-La Crosse students surprised with scholarships and end of semester banquet

Ten UWL students were surprised today with an end-of-the-semester gift.

$500 scholarships were given to ten students in the Business Administration’s Integrated Core Program.

The money for the scholarships comes from Reinhart Foodservice which the students worked with for their final project.

Students were asked to take on tasks like researching the value of a diversity and inclusion program as well as employee engagement.

The knowledge from the program will last much longer than the money from the scholarship.

“It’s not a typical classroom setting that you get to sit down with an actual client who has an actual problem and needs actual solutions whereas we got to do all those things as students,” said UW-La Crosse junior Alex White.

The scholarships were given during an end-of-semester banquet for the students.
