(Since I’m a big musical theater nerd in my spare time…I decided that I could sum up my life and the title for this blog in that quote from the musical THE WIZ.)
At the end of finals week I was more than happy to leave GB. Not the fabulous school, not my friends, but a nice break from academia was welcomed. Even though I would miss some amenities of Green Bay like cable and high-speed internet (which explains the lack of posting, and I apologize)- nothing beats home-cooked meals and old friends.

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
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. Continue reading Jingle Bell Run/ Walk
Final exams are just around the corner and the holidays are quickly approaching. Campus is becoming a dizzy, busy mix of break-anxious and stressed out students. To cure some of these emotions, UWGB started its holiday celebrations this week- and if you ask me- it was just in the nick of time.
For me it started Monday. My on-campus job in the Dean of Students Office called for some office decorating! As the student workers went through boxes of ornaments decorating trees, the university staff in the office played Christmas music and we all talked about family traditions and what presents we were most excited to give to others. Continue reading ‘Tis The Season To Be A Phoenix
I was always told that in college you get so many new opportunities and experiences- this week- I finally understood what everyone was talking about.
For the Freshman Seminar classes (small classes offered exclusively to freshmen in the Focus program that help to enforce Green-Bay’s interdisciplinary approach to learning) each class had read a book by Kevin Sites called In The Hot Zone: One Man, One Year, Twenty Wars. Kevin Sites was a foreign correspondent for ABC, NBC, and CNN until he decided to be a self-sufficient journalist for Yahoo!. He won several awards for his reporting, book, and documentary on this year-long journey through all of the world’s conflict zones. Continue reading Once In A Lifetime Experience
That’s right; bathrooms have never been as fun to talk about as they are here at UWGB.
When on our first day of orientation we compiled a list of reasons people came here to GB the phrase “my own bathroom” was quite prominent.
It may be a selling point of our campus, something that appears on the pro list (or con when you realize you have to clean it), or just a fun fact you may have heard about our campus but we have our OWN bathroom. No flip-flops in the shower rule and no walking down the hallway in a towel in any on-campus housing. Continue reading The Bathroom
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. Some of you might be thinking what’s the food like in college, is it simular to High School? Well I’m here to tell you that food at UWGB is nothing like High School. 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?
