Graduated magna cum laude in spring, now starts as defender while working on an MBA.
Michael Alfano faced a tough choice last May — try to parlay his magna cum laude degree in marketing from Marquette into a full-time job, or enroll in graduate school and complete his soccer eligibility.

Alfano said he couldn't be happier, as Marquette is 5-0-0 in the Big East heading into a home match Wednesday night against nationally ranked Georgetown.

In 1962, Kohl’s Corp. opened its first retail store in Brookfield. In 48 years, the company has expanded rapidly and is now a major national retailer with 1,067 stores in 49 states. And for decades, it has been a mark of pride in the village that Kohl’s, a company that reported $17.1 billion in sales in 2009, calls Menomonee Falls home. However, the company’s future presence in the village is far from certain. Last week, Kohl’s CEO Kevin Mansell said the company is still considering all its options for a new location – including moving out of state.
