Fall 2010: Programs you don’t want to miss!
September 7, 2010
So, what are the “don’t miss” events at UW-Green Bay this fall? Here are some recommendations from the Leadership Blog:
ORGSMORG, 11am to 2pm, Wednesday, September 15, Phoenix Rooms, Union
One of the most popular events of the year, OrgSmorg is your opportunity to “shop” for student organizations. Not sure what to join? At OrgSmorg, more than 100 student groups gather together, set up informational booths, and talk to students about what they do and when they meet. By being a member of an organization, you learn valuable skills, meet people, and build confidence. From the Ambassadors to Zeta Omega Tau, there’s something for everyone at OrgSmorg.
MAXIMUM U DAY: 9am to 5pm Saturday, October 2, Union
Max U. Day is UW-Green Bay’s popular daylong leadership conference. Whether you have no leadership experience or lots of it, this event has something just for you. Planned by students and staff, Max U. offers a wide variety of workshops from which to choose. Topics for this fall include time management, assertiveness, how to make teams work, and how to lead according to your personal style.
