Wyatt Elstran during graduation in May 2018
Right after graduation, there can be an adjustment period when you leave Platteville. Have you received any job offers? If so, what will you be doing?
Technically I haven't completely graduated from Platteville until the end of August due to my current internship. I am currently employed as an Energy Intern at American Phoenix, which is a rubber manufacturing plant in Eau Claire. I graduated with a major in Industrial Technology Management with a minor in Plastics Processing Technology and am currently applying for jobs around Wisconsin.

There are so many ways to get involved on campus. How did you know TKE was the right fit for you?
I started running into Tekes all over campus during my sophomore year of college. I ended up working with a few at Dining Services in the Student Center. I was able to get to know more of the guys and after awhile I felt like I knew most of them. So I figured why not be a part of it.
What sticks out in your memory about your time as an active in the chapter?
What sticks out to me is the awesome brotherhood. We had a lot of guys with different backgrounds, personalities and opinions so it was really cool to see we could all come together through TKE.

It appears that you like the show The Office. Which character would you play if you auditioned?
Oh man, I've watched the series about 3 times through. It's hard to pick just one because I think we all have a little Michael Scott in us but I'm normally a pretty laid-back guy so I'll have to say Jim.
