The newly elected senator, of Fond du Lac, took the time to learn more about College of Business programming as well as the Small Business Development Center while on campus.
College of Business Dean Bill Tallon led the tour of Sage Hall, campus’ newest academic building, highlighting many of the sustainable and state-of-the-art features including the green roof, focus group rooms, breakout study rooms and areas and the Student Managed Endowment Fund (SMEF) trading room.
“The trading room makes us pretty special, I think,” Tallon told Gudex during the tour; students invest more than a half of a million dollars of real money annually out of the trading room.
“This is great…just to have this facility is a true asset,” said Gudex of Sage Hall.

Sen. Gudex will return to campus Saturday, Feb. 9 to participate in the rededication of Kolf Sports Center with other state, local and University officials.
Last fall, UW Oshkosh completed its latest and final round of renovations to Kolf Sports Center, including the installation of a new track and bleachers in the fieldhouse. The hardwood court also was refurbished and painted. The project is the culmination of more than $4.4 million invested in the building by UW Oshkosh and the state of Wisconsin since 2001. With additional phases of improvements over the previous 20 years, the fieldhouse portion of the facility — which has been home to hundreds of events including high school and UW Oshkosh commencements, sporting events, concerts, presidential candidate visits, career fairs and economic summits — has been completely renovated and at a far more acceptable cost than that of a brand new facility.
