Student Profiles: Logan Gants
As a Madison native, Logan Gants grew up hearing about the remarkable things that happen at UW–Madison. Now, as a junior, he is experiencing those countless opportunities firsthand.
Logan, who is pursuing majors in political science and journalism and mass communications, with a certificate in business, hopes to have a career as an account manager at an advertising firm. He has gained technical and professional skills in the classroom, and has joined several organizations outside the classroom to enhance his Wisconsin Experience, including the Altruistic Advertising Club, Pi Sigma Alpha (a political science honor society), and Zeta Beta Tau fraternity.
He is particularly active in his fraternity, previously serving as the risk management chair and currently serving as the academic chair. Logan is also a student employee in the Dean of Students Office, Division of Student Life, where he is praised for his excellent work ethic and dedication to his job.
Logan says the relationships he has built through these varied activities have increased his appreciation for the commitment that university administrators make to the campus as a whole.
Taking advantage of the world-class research opportunities, Logan has recently worked with Political Science Professor Kenneth Mayer to gather data and conduct research on Connecticut’s recent campaign-finance legislation. He regards the research project, which will soon be published, as another challenging — yet fulfilling — experience that is helping him to build a foundation for future success.
