Giving, Not Taking, One for the TEAM

October 2017

Facility Services’ social and charitable arm pulls together for the benefit of others

It started as some of the very best ideas do--with cookies, brownies and other assorted goodies. In 2012, Facility Services at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point held a bake sale in support of the university’s student food pantry, The Cupboard. The fundraiser was the brainchild of the newly formed group known as TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More). TEAM members concurrently held a food drive, collecting some 58 pounds of canned goods and nonperishable items to go with the $37 in cash raised during the sale. Thus began a tradition linking good times with good works.

Talking 'Bout My Generations

July 2017

There were plenty of reasons why first year student Nicole Hauck decided to attend University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. For one thing, there was the location and layout of the campus, which, following a campus tour, Nicole declared made her feel very comfortable. She also was intrigued by the university's many academic offerings, and impressed by the facilities and technology available to students. "It was very natural to envision myself living and learning here," she says. Of course, it didn't hurt that UWSP is pretty much in Nicole's blood, as the 2017 Alumni Generations Scholarship recipient's family ties to the university run deep and wide.
