Connecting Students to Support Services and Agencies

Free Fitness Routines

Many of us are doing homework or telecommuting from our home office, desk, kitchen table, or even your bed. Now is the perfect time to get up and move. Within the Fitness Blender website, you're able to search fitness routines specifically to what you're looking for, including the length of duration, what equipment you have available, what area of the body you want to focus on, and so much more.

Become a poll worker

Wisconsin is looking for citizens to serve as poll workers for the Tuesday, April 7, election. Many veteran poll workers are unable to work the polls so younger citizens are asked to step up. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic many Wisconsin cities, towns and villages are looking for extra volunteers to assist with running the election.

Those interested can find their clerk by searching using their address. Click on the clerk’s email address to send him or her a message with “Poll Worker Applicant” in the subject line. Applicants should include a few words about their interests and their contact information   

To be a poll worker, a person must:  

  • Be a qualified elector of the county in which the municipality is located (i.e., an adult citizen of the United States who has resided in the election district for 10 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified to vote)  
  • Be at least 17 years-old  
  • Be able to read and write fluently in the English language  
  • Not be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election.    

Poll workers do everything from check-in voters, help people register to vote, check photo IDs and process absentee ballots. Local clerks will provide training prior to election day. This is a great opportunity for college students to get involved with the democratic process.
