We’re everywhere!

Our UW-Green Bay alumni are active. You will find them volunteering in the community, hanging out at regional receptions and connecting with students on campus and in the workplace. The proof is in the pictures. Check out the photo gallery to recognize yourself or a former classmate!

Thanks, Mary and Marquis

The Alumni Relations Office reports a nice turnout the “Friend and Foe” reception prior to the UW-Milwaukee-UW-Green Bay women’s basketball showdown at the Kress Center in March. The big crowd (3,000-plus) saw a thrilling Phoenix win, and an impressive halftime victory by Mary Kulenkamp ‘06 (who now works on campus in Admissions as an enrollment services specialist). Shhhh — don’t tell UWM, but Mary is a former Phoenix basketball star. Just a week or two earlier, Marquis Hines ’90, also a former Phoenix basketball alumnus took the halftime crown at a UW-Milwaukee alumni event.
