We’ve Got Spirit and $25; How ‘Bout You?

UWGB-Day-Lambeau-50Our Green Bay men’s and women’s basketball teams are approaching the end of season with a few critical home games remaining. Conference championships and valuable seeding for hosting the conference tournament (and an NCAA bid) are on the line. We’re challenging you to show your February- and March-mania.  Wear your UWGB gear (the crazier the better), take a selfie and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #uwgbalumni. Each week through the remainder of the season, we will randomly select one alumni selfie to receive a $25 Phoenix Bookstore gift card. You can enter one selfie per game you attend. Good luck and Go Phoenix!

The UW-Green Bay Transformation

Many alumni have shared amazing stories of how their lives were transformed during their time as a student at UW-Green Bay. Some alumni are doing transformational work in their careers and are making the world a better place. As UWGB celebrates its 50th Anniversary, 50 alumni who have experienced the “UW-Green Bay Transformation,” will be featured. If you have a story to share, please email Director of Alumni Relations Kari Moody with details at  A library of stories will be compiled throughout the next several months to be shared in the 2015-2016 academic year.
