Wish You Were Here: Working Memories

Alumni look back on their jobs and internships — the work that filled their hours outside the classroom.

August 21, 2020

There are many ways to learn at UW–Madison, and in the classroom is only one. Badgers pick up many lessons — and a few bucks — from their student jobs. Whether you had an internship, a work-study position, or a meal job, those experiences taught you the meaning of fiscal responsibility, if nothing else.

We want to hear your stories about your student job or internship. Did you sling hash at Gordon’s? Wait tables at the Stone Pony? Fetch coffee for some office that didn’t know what to do with an intern, anyway? Tell us all about it.

Send us your memory. (Include photos, please!) We’ll add it to this scrapbook.

Due to COVID-19 health concerns, Benji Erk, an essential food service staff member with University Housing, frequently cleans and disinfects cooler doors and other high-contact surfaces in the Gordon Avenue Market inside the Gordon Dining and Event Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on April 8, 2020. Only certain housing staff and some of the several hundred authorized-student residents still living in UW Housing residence halls have WiscCard access to the now locked building. The majority of the UW-Madison campus is closed in response to the rapidly-evolving health concerns of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. (Photo by Jeff Miller / UW-Madison)
