As Wisconsin’s first, four-year institution of higher learning, Carroll University has an incredibly storied past. Every student that has walked through the doors has played a part in shaping the institution as well as their surrounding communities.
Recent Carroll graduate, Emily Gaggioli '20, explored part of that history to produce a limited series of podcasts featuring some of our notable alumni. In this episode of "A Pioneered History," hear the story of alumnus Lucius Nieman, who attended Carroll for a short time before pursuing his passion for journalism. He went on to become founder in 1882 of The Milwaukee Journal, providing citizens with crucial information during some of Wisconsin’s most tumultuous times. Nieman’s efforts also reveal some virtues and characteristics still present at Carroll today.
Emily graduated from Carroll University's graphic communication program in 2020. She has worked for a year as the electronic communications assistant in the Office of Alumni Engagement, where she developed a podcast platform for storytelling. Emily is also a graphic design intern at Saturn Lounge in Brookfield, Wisconsin.
