The UW-Platteville campus is proposing a new Second Street major with the emphasis options of mixology and communications. Current sophomore business student Shirley Temple brought up this idea after hearing about the success her friends had in the major at other universities.

“My friends would tell me about the experiences they gained and the in-depth hands-on learning the classes provided. I realized that [the] Platteville campus had room for improvement,” Temple said.

She worked alongside Professor Dr. Richard Ralphing to help create the proposal. Some of the proposed classes to count towards the new major and emphasis’ would be Margarita Monday 411, Tipsy Tuesday, Wasted Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday 101 and Introduction to Bartending. Ralphing will be one of the teachers and advisors for this new major.

“I am willing to help get this passed and lay the groundwork for the first year it is in place. My son is attending UW-Madison and they have this major. He has really grown from it and Platteville can’t let Madison be better than us,” Ralphing said.

Other students have similar views. They were surveyed on their opinion about whether the new Second Street major would be beneficial or not.

“I wish this was an option while I was still attending. I feel like I would have been more prepared for the real world by enhancing my skills in drink mixes. I think that I would have gotten more out of my college experience and met more friends if I would have had the opportunity to take those classes,” senior engineering major Harvey Wallbanger said.

The benefit of adding this new major is to help prepare students for their future careers and be competitive in the work force after graduating. The classes would provide weekly field trips with hands on experience to Brothers, Boondocks and Public House. This would allow students to learn directly from the professionals and gain the in-classroom knowledge.

“I will be the first one to sign up for this so I can do a double major. I have always known I wanted to be involved with agriculture but had a big interest for Second Street majors elsewhere and was disappointed Platteville didn’t have one,” junior agribusiness major Hailey Headhurt said.

The new major will be discussed and voted on at the next College Council meeting. If accepted, the new major will be in place for the Fall 2018 semester. Remember to hydrate responsibly P-Vegas.
