Earlier this week we asked students what they thought was the best part of living on campus at UWGB. All respondents had a chance to win a $25 gift card to The Phoenix Bookstore! We had a few GREAT responses including:

“Not having to commute in awful Wisconsin weather and being surrounded by beautifiul nature aka all of campus!” - Emily Lorelei

“Having our own restrooms instead of sharing a public one!!” - Manuel Vivas III

“Having all of your friends within a two minute walk.” - Heather Plough

“Becoming a part of a community (UWGB) while living directly in that community!” - Rebecca Bee

But we can choose only one winner and that winner is . . . Kim Hurst! Kim responded:Q3 Winner

“It makes it so much easier and convenient to go to campus events like GB Nites and Bingo!” 

Along with sharing an awesome picture of her and her friends attending GB Nites! Thank you to everyone who responded and Congratulations to Kim! Stay tuned for next weeks question which will be the FINAL opportunity to win a $25 gift card to the Phoenix Bookstore!

Re-Contracting Response Winner #2

Re-Contracting is about halfway done and that means it’s time to give out some more prizes! Earlier this week we asked students to share with us their favorite memory with either their current or past roommate(s) and we got some AWESOME responses! Here are just a few of the amazing responses we got:

“My current roomies Taylor Campbell , Tristin Jean St Mary , & myself went to every hotel/banquet hall in the area all dressed up looking for a wedding to crash. We put together a wedding present and everything and did not end up crashing a wedding because we couldn’t find one.” - Emily Seideman

“Going to see the band Almost Classy in the Phoenix Club and having them serenade our table. They even complimented our dance moves, and blew kisses to us from the stage!” - Caitlin Balliet

“Study sessions that turned into Modern Family binge watching sessions after about ten minutes of studying!” - Kalynn Krause

“My roommates Taylor Campbell , Emily Seideman & I created the UW-Green Bay Hip Hop Team at 2am one night. We didn’t think it would actually happen but when we woke up the next morning we decided to start planning.” - Tristin Jean St Mary

We even had a few responses from alumni including:

“I graduated in 2008, but I still would like to share that I loved how my roommates in Harden and the ladies across the hall used to come and go from each other’s apartments like it was one place with two kitchens. We used to have family style dinners where we each would make something to add to the meal. Sometimes we would invite the men’s basketball team to eat with us, too.” - Erin E. Wojcik

Unfortunately we could only choose one winner to receive a $25 giftcard to the Phoenix Bookstore and that winner is . . . . Emily Ahrens! Emily responded to our question with the following story:Roomie Winner

“I absolutely love Disney and my roomie (and soon to be teacher ) Taylor Fohey made me this painting for Christmas, in honor of us watching UP together on one of the first weekends of school and bawling our eyes out as a form of roommate bonding. We have since watched many a Disney movie together, but this meant the world to me! (And I may have screamed upon receiving it) Love you, TayTay!”

Thank you to everyone who responded and shared with us their favorite roommate memories! Keep on the lookout for our next question coming out on Monday! Don’t forget to sign your online housing contract to live on campus for the 2017-18 school year! Re-Contract online at: www.uwgb.edu/housing/recontract!
