Ryan McKernan is a freshman from Libertyville, Illinois majoring in Engineering. He was involved in athletics in high school (football, soccer, and basketball) and plans to continue pursuing them once he arrives at UW-Madison. He will also be getting involved with Greek life on campus and the Hoofers Ski & Snowboard club. In his free time, Ryan has enjoyed making short films and has recently expanding his creative efforts to include photography. He is looking forward to meeting new people, forming connection, and getting involved as a part of the #YouAtUW team.
A fun fact about Ryan: He enjoys being outdoors, especially in a hammock!
#YouAtUW contributors will create monthly video, photography, or written content centering on topics and experiences that all first-year students will be engaging with. We encourage all #futurebadgers to follow along with the #YouAtUW team for stories and advice on making it through your first year at UW-Madison.
