CALS was well represented on the 2009 UW-Madison’s Homecoming Court with three students on the ten-person court: Alex Newman, Andy Mulrooney and Stephanie Paull. The three were selected based on their academic achievements, campus activities and community involvement. Considering that CALS students comprise less than a tenth of all UW-Madison undergrads, collecting nearly a third of the spots on the court reflects well on the college.
Alex Newman is a senior majoring in genetics. He hopes to attend medical school to become either a pediatrician or clinical geneticist. He maintains a 3.84 grade point average. On campus, the Menomonee Falls, Wis., native is a member of Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity and is the Philanthropy and Sponsorship Co-Chair for UW-Humorology. In addition, he is Secretary of CALS Ambassadors and is a Nursing Unit Volunteer at Meriter Hospital.

Stephanie Paull will graduate from the University in December 2010 and is pursuing a summer internship on the financial side of agriculture. After graduation, she will be looking for a job in ag finance. On campus, the Ridgeway, Wis., native serves as President of the Association of Women in Agriculture (AWA), the largest women’s professional, service, and social organization serving the agricultural campus.
