Mickelson's first day on the job at UW-Eau Claire was Homecoming Day 1988. Armed with a camera he had never used before and a long list of photos to be taken during the day, he quickly got his feet wet.
“Since then, Homecoming has been a special workday for me, and 2007 marks the completion of two decades' worth of documenting UW-Eau Claire Homecoming celebrations,” Mickelson said.
The exhibit is co-sponsored by the university's Learning and Technology Services, Alumni Association and Foster Gallery.

Thank you all so much for your feedback thus far regarding a possible library book drop on upper campus and the choice of a silent study floor. While the library book drop poll was not conclusive, the response to the silent study floor question was overwhelming. We'll be announcing the results of both polls and also which floor(s) will be silent later this week, based on your feedback.
