It’s Open! Winter is finally gone (or so it seems) and the Shorewood Golf Course is now open for business. I may have mentioned this UWGB perk in a previous blog entry, but this one will be solely dedicated to the links. Continue reading Shorewood Golf Course
You are probably asking yourself if you should be getting a job while you are attending UWGB as a freshman. And the answer that I would give you is…you sure can if you want. Personally, I didn’t have a job during my freshman year because I wanted to focus on my grades and ease into the “new” college life. In other words, I didn’t want to take on too much too fast. I then worked during winter and summer break to make some extra cash for the following semester. If you do decide to get a job, I would recommend a job here on campus. There are many different opportunities and the convenience is unbeatable. Especially if you don’t have a vehicle, you can walk to work just like you walk to class. In fact, as I write this right blog right now, I am at “work” for the Office of Admissions. Continue reading Student Employment
For some sports fans the month of March can’t come fast enough. March means March Madness and the College Basketball Tournament of course. I haven’t followed much of the action this year because I didn’t fill out any fantasy brackets, but it was nice to see the UWGB women’s team make the tourney and it was fun to watch Terry Evens from the UWGB men’s team in the dunk contest. But for those who don’t follow College B-Ball at all, it’s okay cause this blog isn’t about sports anyways. Continue reading UWGB Madness
Saturday February 21st and Sunday the 22nd brought parents to UWGB for the annual Family Weekend.
Family Weekend is truly a great chance for parents, grandparents, brothers, and sisters to come down and spend some quality, fun time with their college student. Especially if they live far away from Green Bay and don’t get much of a chance to visit. Continue reading Family Weekend!
Are college professors mean? Are they harder on you than in high school? Some of you many assume that as the years go on, they just get tougher. But the truth is, the professors don’t get tougher, it’s the material that does. It’s just natural that the classes are going to get tougher. We are growing as students and college is meant to challenge us and prepare us for the future. Not that the material is too difficult, because it is very manageable if you attend class and put a reasonable effort towards your work. The professors want you to succeed more than anyone. They may seem tough, but it is just them challenging you. Continue reading Professors!
Everyone knows that Green Bay is known for Lambeau Field and the Packers, but what you might not know is there are other sporting events to go to that are just as much fun. Continue reading My First Gamblers Game Ever!
You will end up taking plenty of courses for your Major here at UW-Green Bay and they are all important to your educational development, but Internships might be a great opportunity for you to gain real world experience. They are not mandatory, but are highly recommended by many professors/ advisors and myself. No matter what your Major or interest is, there is most likely some sort of Internship or opportunity out there for you. Some Internship can be for student organizations here on campus or other internships can be for outside companies and businesses. Continue reading MAJOR TALK: Internships!
Something I like to do more than anything is play basketball over at the Kress Events Center on the UWGB campus. It’s a close place where I can get a bunch of my friends together for a pick up game. And the best part is it’s completely free for students, even during winter and summer break. All you need to do is flash your student ID at the front desk and you’re in. You can check out basketballs and other equipment to use in many open gyms. Continue reading UWGB – What I do for fun!
When I first came to UWGB back in 2006, I was told by students, professors, and advisors that not having a Major in mind was okay. In fact it was a good thing. Why is that a good thing you say? Wouldn’t it be better to have a plan and know what you want to exactly do before you enter college? Well, it’s a fact that many students end up changing their minds once or twice anyways once they are in college. I’m not saying that having a plan is bad, because I’ve seen people have a dream in High School and stick with it through college. But, if you don’t have a clue, you are definitely not alone and a Major will find you. It is kind of weird how it works, but somehow something shows up and takes you in a path that you never thought you would go down. Continue reading MAJOR TALK: Undecided is OKAY!
What place on campus do you think has the most visitors this time of year? Yep…you guessed it, it’s the library. With exams and finals next week, students will be having a date with their books this Saturday night instead of their significant other.
The Cofrin Library at UWGB has 8 floors but there are only really 6 that are important to students. Continue reading Cofrin Library
