Hey Guys!

My name is Kim Kittelson. I’m a sophomore this year at UWGB and am a triple major in Democracy and Justice Studies, Political Science, and History. I’m not totally sure what I want to do career wise, but I plan on attending graduate school regardless!

When I have some free time I love to read (currently reading The Wolf and the Watchman, which is awesome – read it if you haven’t). I go to concerts whenever I can, my most recent being Pearl Jam and I also love to travel! And of course, Netflix is a life saver.

I’m really excited for this class!

Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself, “I’m a Man of wealth and taste…”

Introductions for me always feel so sterile, but for the sake of uniformity I will regurgitate who what I do as part of who I am.  I am a Democracy and Justice Studies Major on track to graduate in December of 2015, I have had two minors that I have dropped and have decided that my minors are insignificant to the future goals that I have.  I plan to be a criminal defense attorney but law school will not proceed directly upon graduation from this institution.  I am a non-traditional student and with this comes more than just the label.  I started my college education when I was 27 years old and have successfully balanced a home, work and full-time classes for almost six years.  Once I graduate I MUST completely pay off my undergraduate loans so that I can start fresh once I resume my education in law.  Upon graduation I am going to go into the professional world, working for the state as a probation and parole agent in the Department of Corrections.  My hope of extending my education beyond my undergraduate degree will allow me to help the financially incapacitated criminally accused before they become a product of this country’s criminal justice system.

A little more about me, I have 6 younger brothers, two sets of parents, one niece and one nephew.  I no longer have any pets because this summer I had to put my dog Angel to rest and my parents put their dog Eve to rest shortly before Angel.

I guess there is so much more that I could talk about but I prefer to not.  I tend to keep to myself outside of forced social situations and I prefer quiet time at home or out in nature over the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Allow me to introduce myself

Hello, I’m Rachal Kennedy. I’m a senior and a DJS major. I’m also the President of the student organization The Sexuality and Gender Alliance on campus. After I graduate, I would like to work in the fields of domestic violence and sexual assault. What, exactly I want to do in those areas I’m not positive yet.

I enjoy music, and listen to a variety of genres, and play a few instruments. I started college as a music education major at Steven’s Point.

I am a bit of a nerd. I love the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, Star Gate, The X-Files, Xena: Warrior Princess, Charmed, and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. I also enjoy musical theater and during the summer I work on cast at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, where I do things like dance traditional English country dances and maypole dances, and sing traditional folk songs.

My name is Sierra Aboulhassani. I am double majoring in DJS and Political Science, with a minor in History. I am a transfer student from NWTC; this is my second semester at UWGB. After I graduate my plan is to attend Law School.

In my spare time I enjoy reading novels which encompass a wide range of genres, watching Netflix, playing with cats, going for long walks in the summer, running from cars to indoor spaces in the winter, and staying informed on international, national and local politics.

I am excited for this class and look forward to hearing each of your perspectives on the topics we’ll be covering.



My name is Cindy Doherty and I am a Democracy and Justice major with an emphasis in Law and Justice.  I will be graduating in May which is a relief to my 4 kids; they are tired of hearing that I have to do homework instead of making dinner. (You would think it was difficult to order pizza).  Since I have been in school for the last 6 years I don’t think I have any hobbies left, but I still find time to binge watch Netflix.  Right now my husband and I are watching  Psych.


Hi I’m Phil Huberty I’m a Democracy and Justice major with an emphasis on Law and Justice. I am a transfer student and this is my fourth semester here at UWGB, previously I attended FVTC and I was in the Army. I am huge into curling, I was on the team that represented UWGB at College Curling Nationals last year and we won, we will be traveling to Rochester, New York this year to defend out title. I also coach Pulaski high school curling. I’m really looking forward to this class as it allows us to look at different events and speeches in American history from a different view point.


Hello everyone! My name is John Soper.  I am a Public Relations Communication major with a minor in Political Science.  I am currently a Junior, but credit-wise, I am a Senior.  I am the North East Regional Vice Chair of the Federation of Wisconsin College Republicans.  I am very excited for this class because it centers around American History!


Hi everyone my name is Cynthia and I am junior at UWGB. I have been attending this school since fall of 2013 and I am a Social Work Major. I wanted to get into a career field where I could actually make a difference in someone’s life. I have always wanted to be a social worker and I feel like it is what I was born to do. I served in the military for five years before my college career. I have lived in two foreign countries for a year. The first one was South Korea which was the most enlightening and amazing experience of my life. The second country I lived in for a year was Iraq. Iraq was as deployment so it was a very life changing experience. As a result of my involvement in a major organized government entitiy I wanted to take the opportunity to learn more about how our government was established. Taking this class is a good way to accomplish this goal because we are going to be analyzing the speeches of Americas’ forefathers.


My name is Ben Freeman. I’m a senior going for a Poli Sci/DJS double major and Global Studies/History double minor. I’m extremely interested in politics and always have been. I like running, gaming, partying and live music. My idea of a good time is a weekend at a music and arts festival and, failing that, a good EDM show. My preferred styles of EDM are glitch hop and psydub, but bass music in general scratches my itch. I look for deep, layered texture and complex soundscapes. My favorite artist has to be Dave Tipper. His music is otherworldly, and I was privileged enough to see him perform 2 sets live last summer.

Some of my favorite visual artists include Alex Grey and Android Jones. I was also privileged enough to see Alex and Allyson Grey paint live last summer. Finally, like Tyler, I too attended the South Africa Cape Town travel course. Needless to say, it was the experience of a lifetime.
