For 15 years now in the cold month of December, the UWGB trails fill with runners and walkers of all kinds to fight arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability.
A few days ago on Saturday December 6th, the Kress Events Center gave host to the start of the annual 5 k run/ walk. I personally attended the event for the second year in a row and braved the cold weather with hundreds of others for a good cause. Registration started at 8 AM and the run/ walk started at 9 AM. Each participant received jingle bells for the walk and a shirt. Before the gun went off you were able to get a free massage to get your muscles loose or you could grab a hot cup of cocoa or coffee.

I few weeks ago I mentioned all of the great food choices here on the UWGB campus and this week I will share with you some near-by off campus options.
UWGB is a great campus; it is secluded from any other homes or businesses in Green Bay. If you are planning to have a car with you at school, then you will be able to take advantage of a short drive to some great off campus dining options if you are looking for a change of pace from the food on campus.

Signing up for classes is pretty easy. If you are going to be a new student at UWGB, you will probably be signing up for your first semester of classes during the FOCUS program in early summer. You will have very helpful people walk you through the process there, but I will give you a little look inside the process of signing up for classes each semester.

Some of you can’t wait for college so that you can live on your own finally. Some of you have never spent more than a week away from your family and don’t know what to think.
When the first day of college comes you will probably have a mixture of excitement and nerves. Some people might not show it, but I think everyone is at least a little nervous…so you’re not alone. It’s a moment that not a lot of people will experienced until the morning of move-in for that first year of college…knowing that you will be living on their own. No parents means freedom right? No curfews, no rules, no one standing over your shoulder telling you what to do. But, no parents also means, no one to cook for you, to clean for you, and to do your laundry. And I can’t say that this will be how it is for everyone. Some of you might already be used to doing all of those things yourself, but for others it can be kind of scary.

In High School, you likely have class from about 8 in the morning till around 3 in the afternoon. You get minimum breaks between classes and you have to stay in the same building all day long. When I first came to UWGB, I had no clue how things were going to be. I didn’t know how often I would have class or how long my days were going to be, but quickly I found that it was much different than High School. Continue reading My Daily Schedule: Much Different Than High School
I think it’s safe to say that the food in High School is not exactly five star dining. And most of you probably couldn’t wait until your junior or Senior year to eat outside of school and hit up an Arby’s or something.

There are so many options and choices that you’ll never be sad with whats on the menu! In this blog I will tell you about the dining options and different food choices that are available at UWGB. Continue reading So what’s the food like?
