Give the gift of education and opportunity

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

With the season of giving upon us, please consider making a gift back to your alma mater. Alumni support is more important now than ever, as tuition continues to increase, while other funding sources remain flat or decrease. Your gift helps support UW-Green Bay students through scholarships or supplementing costs for academic programs.

For example, UW-Green Bay alumni helped 47 students receive more than $60,000 in scholarships this year with their donations from last year. This is important, especially since 82% of undergraduate students qualify for and receive some form of financial aid. With a record 6,798 students this year, know that every little bit helps, and alumni gifts add up to a big difference for UW-Green Bay students!

Annual Meeting Update

Friday, November 30th, 2012

For those who attended the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association’s Annual Meeting, it was an informative and fun night!

We started off with a social with the Chancellor and fellow alumni. The food was fantastic!

Chancellor Harden then updated the approximately 35 alumni present on the brand initiative. We viewed several video clips regarding the new brand, “360ᵒ of Learning” and then toured the campus. Many alumni commented on how much has changed since they graduated. For most everyone, the night ended with a stop at the Phoenix Bookstore where we enjoyed a special alumni 25% discount!
