Malinda Hebert, assistant director of the Memorial Student Center, said staff are excited to have Eggum as the new manager.
“In the short time she has been on board, she has brought a new energy to Stoutfitters,” Hebert said. “She is a fairly recent UW-Stout graduate, which gives her an advantage of having a pulse on what students are looking for in apparel, supplies and gifts and what the store is missing in product and services.
“Hanahh has some great ideas to enhance the services provided, such as expanded hours, plans to update and add in-store branding, which will add spirit and hopefully increased interest in visiting Stoutfitters. Hanahh also has plans to provide some pop-up shops at select campus events, bringing the store to event attendees.”
As an alumna, Eggum knows UW-Stout and is already brainstorming how Stoutfitters can support and complement events and build relationships with departments across campus, Hebert said.
Eggum transferred to UW-Stout after about two years at what is now known as UW-Oshkosh, Fox Cities Campus. “UW-Stout is the only public school in the state that offers my major,” Eggum said. “I still believe this is the best place for my program in the country.”
Eggum lives in Menomonie with her partner, Zoe Slewitzke, a senior majoring in graphic design and interactive media concentrating in communication design.
Eggum is passionate about making Stoutfitters grow and thrive. “I love seeing how we can do a different procedure and make it better.”
