Elijah Behnke

Elijah Behnke

Sheboygan, WI
Peer Tutor | Chemistry & Mathematics

My name is Elijah, and I’m from Sheboygan, WI. I lived right on Lake Michigan and I love the water. Some of my interests include shooting archery, being involved in my studies, and hanging out with the people that are important to me. I am a junior hoping to double major in chemistry and mathematics and minor in physics. When my time at UWL is up, I hope to go onto a graduate program for chemistry and possibly even look into going for a Ph.D. in the field. However, that is still many years away and I hope to be able to apply chemistry wherever I end up.

Seth Oemig

Marshfield, WI
Communications Intern | Communication Studies

My name is Seth Oemig, and I’m a CST major here at UWL. I’m from Marshfield, Wisconsin, and love being a Wisconsinite! In my free time I love watching sports, hiking, and hanging out with friends and family. I’m a first-generation college student and former UWL First! Scholar. I was part of the peer mentor program as a mentee my freshman year and saw the value of it right away. Being a peer mentor has been very rewarding for me and I love working with first-year students as they get comfortable here at UWL. College is a place where everyone should feel welcome, and our goal as peer mentors is to make sure that’s the case for our mentees.

I am involved with Cru here on campus. My favorite music artist is NF and am determined to go to a concert next time he goes on tour. I love being outside and love spending time with my friends here. I am very much an extrovert, I could be with people 24 hours of the day and be perfectly happy. I love working with SSS because I get to meet more students and grow new relationships!!
