student Ben GaugerBen Gauger, a junior, is an aspiring educator majoring in elementary/middle education with a double minor in broad field social studies and music. Because he is from Jackson, Wisconsin, he is a diehard fan of our home-state sports teams including the Brewers, Bucks, and Packers, and he also enjoys watching the Cleveland Browns.  In his free time, he enjoys playing disc golf, singing, and playing piano. One of his favorite artists is Rick Astley because his music puts him in a good mood, and some might say he looks like Astley.

At Marian, Ben is involved in intramural bowling and soccer, Chamber Singer, Vocal Jazz, Marian Student Education Association, and leads Side B. He also assists Professor Hein with the Fond du Lac Children’s Chorale.  His advice to students is a quote from Tim Tebow, “Just keep believing. This is an opportunity where great things can happen and let’s be great right now.”
