Now that UWGB has the LGBTQ Resource Center as a place for LGBTQ students to connect on campus, it is only natural that alums have a way to connect too, at least through Facebook. We are proud to announce the creation of the UWGB LGBTQ Alumni Network. Much like geographical Alumni Networks, the UWGB LGBTQ Alumni Network is a way to connect, keep in touch, and network with other alums in the LGBTQ community. The Facebook group is a closed group in which you need to request to join, but this allows only the members of the group to see the wall and postings. If you want to be a part of the LGBTQ Alumni Network simply find us on Facebook and ask to join!
Additionally we would like to get together as the LGBTQ Alumni Network at least once a year, if not more! While at Pride Alive, a group of UWGB alumni talked with the individuals at the LGBTQ Resource Center booth, and indicated a desire to have a place for UWGB LGBTQ alumni to meet and socialize. Hopefully the creation of the LGBTQ Alumni Network will provide for these opportunities. Join the UWGB LGBTX Network here.
There was no question it was summer with 93ᵒ temperatures greeting alumni family and friends for UW-Green Bay’s first Alumni Family Day at Bay Beach! Approximately 40 people were in attendance, representing alumni from the first four-year graduating class of 1973 all the way through 2013. Kids ages 1-17 had a great time hanging out with Phlash, doing the limbo, playing bean bag toss, wrapping each other up as mummies and running the egg relay race. Alumni competed fiercely in the trivia contest and had the opportunity to learn some interesting facts about their alma mater. All in all, it was a super fun day and an event worth repeating! Check out more photos at our Facebook page.
You get to be involved in creating a UWGB alumni tradition…The PRIDE Shirt! Each year graphic design alumni will create different t-shirt designs and our alumni will vote on their favorite. The winning design will be unveiled at ‘Alumni Reunion Days’ and is the official t-shirt of the event. In fact, one PRIDE shirt will be included with each registration for ‘Alumni Reunion Days!’
You can also purchase the unique collectible PRIDE shirt throughout the year as a spirited way to show your pride and support scholarships. The best part of this new tradition is that proceeds will support the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship which is awarded to students following in the footsteps of a family member who attended UW-Green Bay. You not only get a super cool t-shirt but you are supporting students attending UW-Green Bay. What a great way to show your pride and give back!
So watch the Alumni Facebook page and Twitter for the designs to choose from. This is going to be fun!!!

Great news for all of our alumni who like to display their pride for UWGB. You will soon be able to get a UW-Green Bay Alumni Association credit card to show off when you make purchases.

We are in the process of determining what the card will look like and plan to have the card available this fall.
