Stressing over the application statements?
No worries! I’m here to help. I’ve read a lot of application statements and I’ve collected some tips on how to complete the statements with ease:
1) Write it in a format that allows for spell check. Trust me people. We are spell check babies, we need it. The UW-System application doesn’t have spell check in it. Don’t free type in the statements…we see way too many spelling mishaps! Continue reading Stressing over the application statements?
Back to School Time
Can you feel it? The excitement is building. In one week, the entire freshmen class will be coming to campus to move in to housing and attend FOCUS Orientation. This is my favorite time of year. People are checking out where their classrooms are, getting their books and materials for class, meeting new people and running into old friends. Everything is building to the first day of class.

A day in the life of a UWGB student- written by Gina Durkee
It’s a gorgeous day, the sun is shining, and billowy white clouds are floating in the sky. Walking on my way to Mary Ann Cofrin Hall, I see two squirrels running to the nearest tree. Speaking of trees, there are certainly a lot of them. Taking a walk through campus almost feels like a day at the park; sprawling green grasses can be seen everywhere, and wildlife dashes before your eyes. The air smells like summer; crisp, fresh and inviting. However, I doubt anyone will find a Shoe Tree in any local park! The Shoe Tree is definitely unique to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

And over here we have….your future. by Amy Manske
I have been giving tours at UWGB for almost 3 years. It’s a similar routine; we see the remarkable view of campus from the eighth floor of the library, wander the Kress Events Center, and make a stop in a residence hall to show off our famous personal bathrooms. Why would I love giving a tour of a campus I see every day? The easy answer is because every person I meet on a tour makes me feel even better about choosing UWGB.

The legend of the shoe tree
When will you embark on the tradition, and what will your parting message be?
Each year seniors commemorate their graduation by knotting the laces of a worn pair of sneakers and lofting them high into the branches of a campus landmark, the Shoe Tree. The origins of this custom remain a mystery. No one knows who started it but everyone has a tale to tell about it. Continue reading The legend of the shoe tree
How did we become the Phoenix?
From “Bay Badger” to “Fighting Phoenix”
1970 – As UW-Green Bay prepared to graduate its first class of seniors and conclude its first year of intercollegiate competition, it was decided to cut the cord with the flagship parent campus in Madison and adopt our own emblem. UW-Green Bay decided to send the water-skiing version of Bucky Badger on a permanent vacation. Continue reading How did we become the Phoenix?
