A Special Thank You to 50th Anniversary Sponsors

THANK YOUThe University of Wisconsin Green-Bay had a tremendous 50th Anniversary this past year! For a re-cap, check out our 50th Anniversary website. As the celebration of this important milestone comes to a close, 50th Anniversary Co-Chairs Tracy Heaser ’05 and Molly Vandervest want to send a special “thank you” to those who helped make it happen. “We are especially grateful for the generosity of our sponsors helping to put the University in the spotlight while allowing us to maintain our most important function: providing an excellent, interdisciplinary and problem-focused educational experience for our students.” All of us at UW-Green Bay ask you to please join us in saying thank you to our 50th Anniversary sponsors for their tremendous support!

Thurs, Sept 1: Freshman Move-in Day

move-in-feature-photo-624x361Would you like to help welcome freshman to UW-Green Bay this fall? We’ve got the perfect opportunity for you! First-year students move in to campus housing on Thursday, September 1st between 8:30 a.m. and noon and we need your help getting them and their stuff to their rooms.

As part of tradition, UWGB faculty, staff and alumni have been on site to assist our newest students as they move to campus and take one of their first steps towards completing their education. As you know, this is a stressful time for both the student and their family and friends who may be assisting them. In the past, our Phoenix families have been very appreciative and relieved to arrive on campus to find conveniently located information tables, staff directing traffic and others awaiting to help tote boxes, bags and refrigerators into the buildings.

The Office of Residence Life invites you to be one of the volunteers who will both welcome and assist our students with their physical move into UWGB student housing. This small gift of your time and energy could have a huge impact on our students’ engagement and retention. If interested, please register here by August 1.

As always, a luncheon will be provided to all volunteers following move-in day as a small token of our appreciation. Thank you, in advance, for putting Phoenix first! If you have questions, please contact the Office of Residence Life, (920) 465-2040.
