Alumni College Experience (ACE)

First day of class. A new professor. A new year. A new beginning.

The love of learning is something innate in so many Pointers. We enjoy challenging ourselves, pushing boundaries and growing. Alumni College Experiences (ACE) is a new program from the UWSP Alumni Association that taps into and nurtures the desire for lifelong learning.

What is ACE?
ACE is an educational tool composed of nontraditional “classes” that bring a bit of the UWSP campus to alumni, wherever they may be. Each ACE class is broken down into sessions featuring short videos on a topic of interest, curated and presented by faculty, staff and guest lecturers. No tests or quizzes are given, but questions, which are relayed to presenting professors, are encouraged and will be answered in future videos as time allows.

Is there a cost?
No. This is a free benefit to UWSP alumni.

How often will a new ACE be posted?
Once a class starts, sessions will be posted once a week until the class is completed. New classes will be posted periodically; there is no set schedule. All video sessions will be housed within the pages of the ACE website, where they can be accessed anytime, anywhere, on several different platforms

Tune in to explore something new, and let us know what topics you’d like to see discussed. We look forward to discovering, and rediscovering, together!
