Like so many people, Rose developed a connection with the lake. Now, the student of cartography and geographic information systems, who is pursuing a master’s degree here, has paid tribute with a three-dimensional, magnetic map of Lake Mendota located in the renovated Hoofers space inside Memorial Union.
