How to Prepare for Your Application with the High School Record

How you prepare in high school matters. 

The best way to determine if you are likely to do well at UW-Green Bay is for a college to review your performance in high school, including your grades in challenging college prep courses. 

The more challenging the coursework you complete in high school, the more likely you are to be successful at UW-Green Bay. We require minimum college preparatory units. Most students complete more than these minimum units.  Continue reading How to Prepare for Your Application with the High School Record

Meet Logan – and his on-campus jobs!

Working on campus at UWGB is an incredible experience. You meet a lot of new people, make new friends, build up some valuable skills, and make a bit of extra money while doing it. When I started college, I hadn’t planned on working in as many different positions as I have, but now I’m glad that I did. Working in a variety of different jobs, with a variety of different people teaches you a lot about your ideal work environment, the kinds of work that you like or don’t like, and the conditions you need to do your best work possible.

Meet Sydney – and her internships!

Having internships can help prepare you for your future, help you decide what you like, and make your overall college experience more fun! I found that I love working in sports, specifically the marketing entertainment side of sports. For the last two years, I have been fortunate to have worked for the Green Bay Packers. If you didn’t know, Lambeau Field is just 20 minutes from campus. I was already a sports fan, but being able to be on the field for my favorite team was unreal. I will never forget the first time I was on the field for the national anthem and the flyover – it was breathtaking.

A Day in Jordan’s Life

My day starts bright and early in the morning at 7 am. Waking up around the same time helps me to feel better in the morning and fall asleep better at night. I live on-campus in a traditional apartment, so I don’t have far to go to get to anywhere on campus. I enjoy morning workouts as a good way to wake up and relieve stress, and the Kress is a great place to go for a much-needed stress reliever. I also try to do some of my homework and studying before heading to class, since I work after class on some days.

Alumni Q&A: Amber Myszka

In 2010, Amber (Kaufman) Myszka stepped onto the UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus as a freshman to kick off her college career. A Marinette local, Myszka knew the value of her community and made the easy choice to stay in her hometown. We sat down to ask Amber all about her experience at the Marinette Campus, and what she’d do differently if she had the chance.

Transitioning to Online Learning

Almost all, if not all students have been transitioning to online classes. I know some people prefer online learning for its flexibility but for me, it’s been devastating. It’s okay to be upset about your classes moving online. For some of us college students, we attended a university because we wanted in-person learning for our degrees. We lived in the dorms to get away from home and live a social lifestyle with our friends. And before we knew it, we attended our last lectures and were asked to move out as soon as possible. We were asked to cancel our spring break trips and some of us didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye to our classmates. Continue reading Transitioning to Online Learning
