My name is Ben Schaefer and I am a junior at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse.  I am currently majoring in Exercise Sports Science with a minor in Biology.  I plan to go to graduate school for Physical Therapy in Colorado next fall.  I love the outdoors and being able to camp, and fish.   Sports are a big part of my life and the main reason I chose to go into Physical Therapy.  Ben Schaefer

 I'm from Milwaukee, WI and am the oldest of 6 children.  I have so many great memories growing up and hope they continue.  My family is a big part in the person I am today.  I actually transferred to La Crosse last year from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and am very grateful for the new friends I made.  I'm looking foward to where I end up in the next couple years with school and couldn't be happier. 

I wrote the habitat, adaptation, nutrition/diet, and egg sac silk pages.
