LSC is the proud home of two vibrant student organizations, the National Agri-Marketing Association and the Science Communication Club. LSC faculty also advise the Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology (JUST).
The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) provides a hands-on approach to marketing and communications in a way that many other organizations don’t. Not only do members have the opportunity to participate in Marketing Team, they also build professional skills through resume workshops, study tours, working at World Dairy Expo and Professional-NAMA events. There are many opportunities to network with industry professionals through these events. In addition, NAMA helps students create lifelong friendships through many of our activities and social events. Sarah Botham, LSC teaching faculty, is the advisor for NAMA. She oversees the organization’s activities and functions as instructor and competition coach for its student marketing team.
Science Communication Club is a student organization for any student at UW-Madison who is interested in science communication or wanting to learn more about science communication. It’s also a way to meet other students interested in science communication, learn about related research/job opportunities, hear from LSC faculty members/experts in the field, and take part in professional development. LSC Assistant Professor Sedona Chinn is the advisor for the Science Communication Club.
The Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology (JUST) is a bi-annual, interdisciplinary journal for the publication and dissemination of undergraduate research conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Encompassing all areas of research in science and technology, JUST aims to provide an open-access platform for undergraduates to share their research with the university and the Madison community at large. Joan Jorgenson and LSC Assistant Professor Todd Newman are the advisors for JUST.
