Ryan Mulrooney

Ryan is Illumination Journal's Wisconsin Idea Editor. He is determined to illuminate those who value and take their education out of the traditional classroom setting. When this English Education major isn't in class, he can often be spotted throughout Madison’s breakfast and coffee scene to see who has the best cup of joe and fluffiest pancakes. Ryan also self-proclaims himself to be one of the best singers of “Build Me Up Buttercup” at Camp Randall Stadium.

Going the Distance

Engaging with citizens in their local communities across the state about the higher education debate may be the best way to shape our public universities. The undergraduate-led project Documenting the Aims of Higher Education in Wisconsin demonstrates the eclectic views and barriers of citizens, and how to possibly serve them.
