The School of Liberal Arts

Cameron Weidenthaler

"I went to Upper Iowa to major in Sports Communication. At the time, most of the schools I was looking at offered something similar but not as focused as UIU. I loved the campus and the people; and I knew I could work in the UIU Sports Information Department for four years to gain experience while receiving my degree. My time at Upper Iowa has most definitely launched me to a graduate assistant position at Western Illinois where I received my master's degree in sport management, to Louisiana-Monroe where I worked closely with the football program, which went to its first-ever bowl game, and now Wayne State. Without my four years at Upper Iowa, I would not have had the foundation on which to build."
