This issue’s student-athlete spotlight is Andrea Bertram, a senior on the University of Wisconsin-Stout women’s track and field team. Bertram is a psychology major and is from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
Why did you choose Stout?
I chose Stout because it was a small school. I love the fact that I am able to get to know everyone in my classes and that I am able to get more one-on-one help interactions with professors
Outside of school and athletics, what are some other things you like to do?
Outside of school and athletics, I love to travel. This past summer, I spent two months in Europe, immersing myself in their cultures. I am planning on going back again this summer. I also love snowmobiling.
What are a few interesting facts about yourself?
An interesting fact about me is that I have two blind cats. Another is that I graduated as salutatorian from high school.
What is your plan after college?
I will be attending graduate school here at UW-Stout after graduation this semester. I will be in the M.S Applied Psychology program.
If you had to pick another sport to play, what would it be and why?
I would play soccer. I grew up playing soccer and played up until my senior year of high school. I chose track in college to do something new.
What’s your favorite place on campus?
I enjoy hanging out at the MSC because I can hang out with friends and it’s also a good place to do homework. They also have great food.
Favorite Food of All Time?
My favorite food of all times is KT mac and cheese.
Who is your favorite pro-athlete and Why?
My favorite pro-athlete is Aaron Rodgers. He not only helped the Packers win a Super Bowl, but he also does a lot of charity work.
