We hit on a lot of topics, led off by some of the details in the Wisconsin Promise plan that was just introduced last week. The program essentially gives Wisconsin students with families making under $62,000 a year tuition free college across the UW System.
We also hit on the UW Board of Regents release of its two-year, $2.5-billion projects list, which includes $237.4 million for UW-La Crosse — the biggest part there and what we spent the most time on, Phase 2 of the Prairie Springs Science Center.
Gow also noted a record in regards to the incoming class this fall and talked about delays with the opening of the new athletic fieldhouse.
