Brett Nachman, Student at University of Wisconsin-MadisonThroughout my college career, I have intended to gain as much out of the academic environment as possible, be it classes, organizations or other campus-related prospects. I have always felt that possessing a position does not solely define an individual’s merit, but rather how that person utilizes that role to produce positivity, support others and show creativity. That motto has represented how I have approached each experience. Here are many of my experiences, compiled according to the context in which they took place.
