Meet Your Faculty-Dr. James Bronson

Professor
Department: Management

 

Where are you originally from?

Eugene, Oregon.  No, I am not a big duck fan, I attended Oregon State, 42 miles up the Willamette Valley.

At what point did you decide you wanted to be a professor?

After finishing my MBA I became curious about the next step.

 What do you enjoy most about teaching at UWW?

My students, most of them are really nice people.

 What are your hobbies outside of teaching?

Teaching is a vocation, not a hobby.  My favorite leisure activities are travel (see #3 under Fast Facts), building and working on boats, sailing, rowing, golf and turkey hunting.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I worked on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, including spending the better part of five years north of the Arctic Circle.

What advice can you give to students about their college career?

You will always do well enough in a class if you follow two rules:

a)      Never cut a class, and

b)      Always have your assignments completed 24 hours in advance.

Fast facts:

Favorite restaurant: Dan & Louis Oyster Bar, Portland, Oregon.
Least favorite subject in school: Statistics and I have taken a lot of statistics courses.
Favorite vacation spot? Pretty much any place with warm salt water and cold beer.
Early bird or night owl? Early, but not too early.
One thing you cannot live without: My wife.
Favorite quote: “Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson
