AJ Galvan | Graduate Assistant 

Hola! I am currently in my second year of the School Counseling Master's Program here at Stout. After completing my Undergraduate degree here at Stout I couldn't stay away. One day I hope to eventually pursue a doctoral degree. I live off campus with a few friends and our cat and dog. Most weekends you will find me traveling back and forth to the cities to see family and friends. When I'm not working or hanging out in the QUBE, I really enjoy anything sports related, cribbage and hanging out with friends. I'm excited to be a part of the Qube staff & Ally to the LGBTQ community! I'm in the office quite often and look forward to an amazing semester here at the QUBE. If you would like to reach me feel free to email me at Galvana@my.uwstout.edu

Tamara Pribnow | Outreach Coordinator

Hello! My name is Tamara Pribnow and I am a returning Outreach Coordinator at the Qube this year! As an Outreach Coordinator I strive to help connect with different groups and organizations around campus. If you are interested in collaborating with the Qube on an event feel free to contact me at pribnowt9135@my.uwstout.edu and as always, feel free to drop by and visit me at the Qube!
I  am a senior in the Vocational Rehabilitation program with a concentration in Social Work. I plan on pursuing a career as a therapist.  I am involved in Stout’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance, and served on the executive board last year.  My involvement in LGBTQIA organizations on campus stems from my love for advocacy, inclusion, and creating safe spaces. In my free time you can almost always find me hanging out with my cat, running, watching movies, or goofing off with some friends.  I’m always willing to lend a listening ear and help people with whatever they need so don’t be afraid to shoot me an e-mail or stop by the Qube!

Hey everyone! I am a Sophomore majoring in Human Development and Family Studies. I'm also a resident assistant in North Hall for the Out@Stout LLC. As far as my interests, I love art in all of its wonderful forms, I'm a Tumblr addict, and I'm into quite the variety of TV shows, including Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, and Bates Motel. If I can leave you with any wisdom today, it would be to be kind, and love one another. Have a wonderful semester and I hope to see you around the Qube very soon!

Welcome to The Qube!  As Communications Coordinator I will be working hard to inform you of upcoming events through social media, campus emails, and The Qube website.  In addition, I am here to help with any questions or concerns.  If you need more information about an event, email me at burtb9726@my.uwstout.edu.

After completing my Associates Degree in Human Services, I transferred to UW-Stout to study Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in child welfare.  I will graduate in December 2014 and hope to gain experience in my field before deciding on graduate school.  In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, biking, gardening, cooking, knitting, live music, and spending time with family and friends.  I'm excited to be a part of the Qube staff and an Ally to the LGBTQIA+ communities!  Good luck this semester and hope to see you at The Qube!
