MADISON, Wis. – Oct. 22, 2009 – The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) was well represented on the 2009 University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Homecoming Court with two AGR undergraduates on the 10-person court. Alex Newman and Andrew Mulrooney were selected to the Badger Homecoming Court based on their academic achievements, campus activities and their community involvement.
Their selection is a great honor given the fact there are 2,439 undergraduate students in CALS and 28,692 undergraduate students on the entire UW campus. Both members were shown at the end of the parade route a day prior to the Homecoming game at Camp Randall.
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 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.
Mulrooney is a senior majoring in ag business management. He recently has accepted a job from Ecolab in its food and beverage division. The Bagley, Wis., native currently serves as Noble Ruler of Iota Chapter. Mulrooney also serves as a CALS Ambassador and is an employee at the UW Meat Science Lab.
Both Newman and Mulrooney were initiated by Iota in 2006.
