With Valentine’s Day coming up, we want to hear all about our UWGB alumni couples. If you are part of an alumni couple, tell us about your love story. We want to know all the details-how you met, where you liked to hang out, if alumni friends stood in your wedding, etc.
University Archives is seeking your help to preserve the rich history of University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Archives collect and save materials about UWGB. We have campus publications and official records of campus offices. However, we are missing an important part of the UWGB story…the students!
We hope you can help us by sharing your photos and memorabilia. Do you have a button with an early mascot? How about a photo of your friends hanging out in the Union, or a poster from the Blue Whale Coffeehouse? Do you have an early uniform? We are especially looking for candid photos and documents about student organizations. Didn’t save anything from your UWGB days? Share a memory instead.
No matter when you went to school, we would love to see your UWGB historical items and hear your stories. Whether you want to send us a story/memory; a digital image; or are ready to part with the original item, you may contact the Archives at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-465-2539.
Who knows? Your photo might be highlighted in our popular Facebook feature, “Throwback Thursday!” Check it out at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Archives and Area Research Center.
Go Phoenix and (Fighting Tomatoes) and (Bay Badgers)!
Save the date for the 2014 UW-Green Bay Alumni Awards on Thursday, May 1 at the Weidner Center for Performing Arts.

Thanks to the many alumni who formed receiving lines to welcome and congratulate the December 2013 graduates into the Alumni Association following commencement, Saturday, Dec. 14. Wearing their 360ᵒ of Pride t-shirts, alumni cheered, gave high fives, pats on the back, and whooped it up for our new grads. Click here to view the photo gallery.
Craig Dickman, a celebrated entrepreneur and, perhaps not coincidentally, a graduate of UW-Green Bay, delivered the commencement address at his alma mater on Saturday. He told more than 400 members of the Class of 2013 that there’s something special about their hometown and also their University. We have a detailed summary of his well-received address at http://news.uwgb.edu/log-news/news/12/14/craig-dickman-commencement-address/
The coldest temp for the Green Bay Holiday Parade in recent memory didn’t stop UW-Green Bay from representing in full force. Again, more than 75 staff, students (including athletes, cheer and dance teams), alumni and community members represented your University with its elaborate, (we think award-worthy) entry in the Green Bay Holiday Parade, November 23. Check it out at Green Bay Holiday Parade.
A crowd of more than 6,500 at the Phoenix men’s basketball home game on Dec. 7 applauded the announcement of a Green Bay Packers Foundation gift of $250,000 to the UW-Green Bay scholarship fund. To read more about this generous gift to the University, click here.
Well, maybe we will feature you in the future. In the meantime, check out some of these great alumni features the past few weeks…
