UW System Offers Flexible Degree Programs
(AP) The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will be the first school in the UW System to offer a so-called flexible degree, in which students will be able to earn college credit for knowledge already gained through work or life experience. UW System officials outlined the program over the summer. On Wednesday they provided details about how the courses would work and which programs would be included.
UW-Milwaukee will begin offering degree programs this fall in nursing, diagnostic imaging and information science, as well as a certificate program in communications. The 13 two-year UW colleges will also provide courses for general education and liberal arts.
The target audience includes nontraditional students such as military veterans and those who left school with some college credits.

They Don't Party Like It's 1999 Any More At Lax Center
Amid conventions, concerts, and the occasional bull riding show, the La Crosse Center has been known to host corporate Christmas parties.
But that business apparently isn't as big as it used to be. During a center board meeting yesterday, building manager Art Fahey told the board that one local company which traditionally had holiday parties at the Center has decided to downscale the event, and move to a smaller venue. Fahey says the company thought a big party might send the wrong message. Fahey says the Center is still open to hosting large corporate events for Christmas...if companies choose to have them.
