Thank you to everyone that stopped by the University of Wisconsin-Platteville table at the Chicago Bilingual & Diversity Job Fair in Chicago on March 15th! This is our third year at this job fair and it gets better every year. There was great conversation, laughs and connections. Already looking forward to 2020!
March is national Women's History Month, so we're honoring several of our first women Pioneers!
Long before there was a Women in Engineering Program at UW-Platteville, there were two young women who paved the way: Fay Bible and Nancy Morrow. In 1935, they were the first women to attend the Mining School.
They joined the staff of W.M.S. Geode as student reporters, and wrote several articles and editorials about their experiences being mining coeds and responding to critics. They even spent a year helping build the "M" moving hundreds of tons of limestone. They both graduated in 1938.
