UW-BSC's Meltesen Takes Second in Calculus Competition

4/3/13
UW-Baraboo/Sauk County student Jocelyn Meltesen has won second place in the UW Colleges “Integrator of the Year” competition.  As part of this event, the top calculus students from all 13 UW Colleges campuses competed to solve a set of integration problems with increasing levels of difficulty.  
 
"This year’s competition was quite challenging, which makes Josie’s achievement one to celebrate," said UW-BSC Assistant Professor of Math Kirthi Premadasa, who has been on the organizing committee since co-founding the competition in 2009.  
 
Meltesen currently resides in Lake Delton with her husband and three children.  She plans to major in Chemistry and minor in Computer Information Systems and Mathematics, with future hopes of pursuing a career in Chemical Informatics.  
 
She is no stranger to academic success, having received an honorable mention in last year's Liberal Arts Essay competition, which was open to all UW System undergraduates.  But she is anxious to share her achievements with the UW-BSC community.  
 
"I feel most privileged to be a part of such a supportive and encouraging campus family," said Meltesen.
