Welcome Back UWSP Students 2018-19 Communication Arts Center  This is the Communication Arts Center, which not only houses the UWSP Pointer Newspaper (where I used to write a very long time ago), the campus radio station and TV studio, but it also graduates many fine communication students every year.  Comm degrees come with an emphasis in several areas including Public Relations, Advertising, Mass Media, and Interpersonal/organizational.  There of course are many distinguished graduates of this college including Bob Crane (Forester) and Terry Porter (NBA player and coach) I hope you enjoyed our series on UWSP (the rest of the series is listed below), when considering off campus housing I hope that you will give us a call to see what we can do to help find a nice home for you.  More Wel...

Welcome Back UWSP Students 2018-19 - Relax, Study or Dine at the DUC  When I was at UWSP this was known as the UC or University center, but more recently somebody thought it would be a good idea to put a very attractive addition on the front with several stores and of course let the current students pay a pile of extra cash.  Along with this new addition, came a new name, it is now known as the Lee Sherman Dreyfuss University Center, at first this was shortened to the LSD-UC, but someone thought that it might look a little strange to have LSD in the name of the new addition so it was shortened a little more to the DUC or "duck", which is an ok name for a university center with so many wildlife majors around.  This is a great place to spend some time, great for meetings, relaxing, eating...

Welcome Back UWSP Students 2018-19, a Wealth of Art on campus   Like many Universities, UWSP has a wealth of art.  Today I mainly took pictures of some of the outdoor art.  You can find art in several buildings including the College of Fine arts, the Library, and the University Center.  You can also find it scattered around campus along the sidewalks and on the side of the CNR building just north of the sundial.  Some of this outdoor art is spectacular and some of is less about art and more about p.t. Barnum salesmanship (a sucker born every day) (like those chunks of rusty iron outside of the library).  This one could be a case of good salesmanship in that it is basically a big rock on a pile of dirt, but something about it strikes me in a good way, maybe it is all the foliage planted ...

Welcome Back UWSP Students 2018-19  Old Main, Like a bit of Harvard in Wisconsin  Old main is the oldest building on campus and always reminds me of our roots dating back nearly 120 years to when Stevens Point was selected as a Normal school or teaching college.  Old main reminds me of the Harvard campus with old buildings that are hard to photograph due to a plentitude of large dense trees.  These trees came in handy 30+ years ago when I had Dendrology class at UWSP and many of the trees that we had to identify from across the nation were only found on the lawn in front of this building.  Now these trees enhance the beauty of this fine old building which is now used as the executive office building for folks like the Chancellor.More Welcome Back to Uwsp Tour Posts     Check out the new...

Welcome Back UWSP Students to the 2018-19 School YearWelcome back to the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, school starts this week and the town is buzzing with activity.  I have seen several groups heading down to Belts for a welcome ice cream break with old and new friends, and today many houses had yard parties as people gathered to reacquaint with old friends and meet a few more before the busy life of classes begins.For those who do not have housing secured, we have a few more homes available we just finished cleaning and repairs on.  And if anyone needs a couch or other misc. furniture, I seem to be developing a collection in one of my garages that I would like to get rid of soon.Jack and I took a walk around campus today and took a few pics of the buildings, people and art...

Stevens Point Wisconsin, I love this town, and so will you!   I first came to this town 37 years ago when I started college here.     It was a culture shock for me coming from a rural farm near a small town of 800 people.  At the time it seemed like a much larger metropolis than it seems to be today.     After 6 years of college I grew to love the city of Point and hated to leave to start my career, but everybody has to grow up and leave sometime.   A decade after starting my Forestry Consulting Company in Western Wisconsin, I was looking to expand and what better place than the home of the largest and most prestigious Forestry school in the country, UW Stevens Point, and the place that I had grown to love so much when I was a student there.     So my wife found a new and better teachin...

Stevens Point Rentals FAQ: Are Utilities Included?   From: jody ] Sent:  May 14 6:54 PMTo: Subject: - $699 / 3br - 3 bedroom, near campus, hospital, and MSTC (Stevens Point, WI)   Are utilities included?   Thank you, Jody -----------------------------------------------------------------------   Hi Jody, Thank you for your interest in our home on Ellis St. We do not pay our tenants utilities for several reasons. First, landlords who do pay their tenants utilities need to make up for this wasted expense by raising the rent to a rate that is higher than the rent plus anticipated utilities. Second and more importantly, it is very bad for the environment when a landlord pays their tenants utilities. Utilities in these homes generally are consumed at a rate significantly higher than homes wh...

Lost another friend today…Far too many friends passing this year, life is short, best to live it while you can.John was a good guy trapped in an impossible situation, mostly of his own making.Though he had the resources to live as a wealthy man and take care of himself, that frugal depression mentality seemed to have ahold of him, keeping him from spending his money on decent food, shelter, and medical care.John’s house was unlivable, so he spent most of his time living in his van that was so full that he could not recline the seat, and occasionally he accepted a bed at our local homeless shelters.His days were spent on the couch at Franciscans Downtown, except when he would get angry at someone for trying to help him and stormed out for a day or so.Fortunately, in a world that little c...

Meade Park, Enjoyment for All on Stevens Point's West Side!   Great view of the Wisconsin River, Riverside Park and Downtown.  One of my son Josh's favorite parks due to the top class nine hole disc golf course.  Also a favorite of parents with small children due to the Deluxe Playground area in this park.  Bob, Josh and Tramp enjoying a litttle spring time disc golf action combined with biking.     This park also adjoins the famous Stevens Point Green Circle Trail, along the west side loop.  There are many more attractions here including a ball field and tennis courts.  As a bonus, if you would like to live near this fine park, it is only about a block away from our nice Cottage Style home on Pearl St.    Sally Crane showing some premo disc golfing skills!   The new playground area in ...

The Green Circle Trail, local treasure Encircling Stevens Point!   As I have mentioned before, Stevens Point has always been a great place for biking.  With very few high traffic bottlenecks, level terrain and ample shops and attractions close to any part of town that you live in.   In 1996, the city added another unique attraction when they developed the Green Circle Trail which helped to join together many of the natural areas in and around the city especially concentrating along the Wisconsin and Plover rivers and all of the great scenery associated with them. The Green Circle Trail take you through nearly 40 miles of great and variable scenery from the Wisconsin River, to the Plover River, Mc Dill Pond, city parks, Schmeeckle reserve, and plenty of private and public forest areas. ...

2018 Books from the Heart, Helping more than just Children I received this letter a while back, along with the other business owners in our town, from a very special person at our local school and thought that I would pass it on for others to help out too. Contributing to education is never a bad idea, well educated people become successful citizens later, and the cycle keeps growing.  This is why I never balk at the huge amount of property taxes that I pay each year that goes to several school districts that my children have never even gone to. I find it strange that so many seemingly intelligent people fight so hard to cut funding to schools using arguments such as "my children went to private school, why should I pay for the public schools", or one of several similar selfish narrow m...

Habibi's Gyros & Kabob House with my girl.It's always a good day when I can find an opportunity for a date with my lovely wife Sally.Recently we discovered a unique restaurant close to our home in Stevens Point.Habibi’s is an experience of the flavors and atmosphere of the Mediterranean, Including a variety of foods of the Mediterranean region such as Turkey, Greece, and North Africa. We did enjoy the tastes as well as the decor, and we will likely become regular visitors.
