2. Office of Multicultural Student Services
3. Residence Life - Drake Hall Front Desk Assistant and Eagle Guide for New Student Orientation
4. Murphy Learning Center - Front Desk Assistant and Web Editor
5. LeaderShape National Institute.
These are all things I have and still currently participating in.

The town is really nice, with a decent amount of activities to do. There's especially a lot of outdoor activities and beautiful sights to see! The campus itself isn't too large, so walking to class doesn't usually take too long. The library is a really good place to study with a decent coffee shop in it, and the new student union has a lot of comfy chairs. Soon there will be a new science building, with a lot of labs! The math and statistics professors are also really interesting and helpful! It's a very good campus to be at!
Amazing small town feel within driving distance of Rochester and Twin Cities. A lot of bars and restaurants downtown to visit and easy to get around town. Active community with bike paths, hikes, and outdoor activities. Unmatched views of the Mississippi and the bluffs surrounding La Crosse. Fall foliage is hard to beat in the area!
