2014 Alumni Reunion Days!

Alumni Reunion DaysOrganizers of UWGB Alumni Reunion Days couldn’t have picked a more beautiful couple of days to host key fall events, October 24-25, 2014. The most well attended of the events were the horse-pulled hayrides with nearly 700 people enjoying the slow-paced opportunity to explore campus, and the Green and White Scrimmage, when the Green Bay men’s and women’s basketball teams took to the floor for a public display of their championship-style pace and reputation (each is predicted to win their conference titles this year) as well as the men’s basketball dunk contest at the Kress Events Center (won by senior Keifer Sykes).
