From the Heart

Hey Bloggers!

This past weekend, I’ve had a life changing experience! I was able to attend one of the most influential and inspirational leadership conferences in my entire life, called Leadership From the Heart.  This leadership conference was brought to UWGB by Student Life, and was free to all students willing to apply.  At first, I was a little skeptical about committing my entire weekend to one conference, but after the first couple of hours all of my inhibitions were gone!  This conference changed my entire outlook on life, teaching me to step outside of my own comfort zone to achieve success.  By the end of this conference, I truly believe that I have changed for the better and have become more confident in myself and my work.  I encourage everyone (if you have the opportunity) to attend this leadership conference, or one like it to better yourselves  as a person and as a leader.  You won’t regret it!

See for Yourself

Hey guys!

Spring semester is underway here in Green Bay, and I’m really looking forward to new classes, new friends, and (let’s face it) a new season without any snow.  With spring coming up fast, most of you high school seniors (along with the expert guidance from your parents and friends) have already made or are making your final decisions as to which University you should attend.  For myself, a variety of different factors were important in making my decision for college, but after I visited the campus I was 100% sure I wanted to come to UW-Green Bay.

For those of you who are already admitted, it’s still not too late to come for a visit.  Another admitted student day is coming up on March 5th and there is still time to sign up!  Students will gain information on financial aid, get valuable classroom experience, and even get a special campus tour (different from one you have had previously!)

To sign up for admitted students day click here:  https://www.uwgb.edu/admissions/secure/asday.asp

There are also daily tours, campus preview days, group visits, and even overnight stays upon request. Click here to find out more and to apply! http://www.uwgb.edu/admissions/visit/index.asp

Don’t just take my word for it. Sign up and see UWGB for yourself! I promise you won’t regret it.   

Have a good one!

Senioritis Anyone?

I think I had senioritis as a Junior in high school~can any one else relate?
It’s getting to be that time of year when Seniors are feeling the senioritis bug biting pretty hard. Do whatever it takes to avoid this disease-it can really hurt your chances of success in college. Did you know that colleges do “take-backs?” They do-trust me.
Seniors get accepted to colleges during the fall of their senior year and then kinda sit back and enjoy Senior year not realizing that when you graduate, colleges get your final transcript from your high school. We see how bad senioritis really is…we see the low grades, dropped course or fluffy senior years. Evidence at UWGB shows that students whose gpa drops or they drop courses senior year tend to do poorly when they come to UWGB. So we have gotten a little tougher with senioritis victims- it’s called rescinding admissions (AKA: take-back).
So I know the senioritis disease is catchy and spreading in your high school. Avoid it. Do whatever you can to finish your senior year well. Trust me, you will be glad you did.
If you already have senioritis and you think it might be influencing your grade point average…let us know what’s going on. It’s much better to hear it from you rather than on your final transcript. We are here to help you-please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Where’s Phlash!?

Hello!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, despite the terrible weather conditions!

While at home over break, I’ve decided to play a little game with you all! Before finals were done, I took my little Phlash the Phoenix doll around campus and took pictures. Your job is to figure out where on campus the picture was taken. Some will be harder than others, but overall it should be fun! I’ll be posting one or two pictures a week, so keep your eyes peeled for them.

Good luck, and Happy Holidays! :)

Enrollment

Hey Everyone!

The time has come (yet again) to enroll for my spring semester classes. My favorite time of year, when SIS (Student Information System) is checked more compulsively than facebook! Luckily, UWGB students don’t have to deal with the stresses of enrollment alone. Academic advising provides students with advisers on a walk-in basis through November 20th. The advisers are so helpful, and go above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns students might have about their classes or major. I definitely encourage anyone with questions or concerns to stop in.  It will only take about 20 minutes of your time!

If you want more info on academic advising, here’s their link!

Well, I’ve got to go check if my prospective classes are still open! Wish me luck.

Basketball Begins

This saturday kicked off our first basketball games, and pep band performances of the year! Both the men and women’s teams won, making for some fun weekend entertainment.  Saturday was also halloween, and members dressed up in costumes ranging from a Banana to a ladybug (that was me!). Here is the link to a video of our Phoenix Fight Song. Enjoy!

Go Phoenix!
