Blast from the Past

Shorewood Club Building, interior with green chairs and curtains SlideUniversity Archives is seeking your help to preserve the rich history of University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Archives collect and save materials about UWGB. We have campus publications and official records of campus offices. However, we are missing an important part of the UWGB story…the students!

We hope you can help us by sharing your photos and memorabilia. Do you have a button with an early mascot? How about a photo of your friends hanging out in the Union, or a poster from the Blue Whale Coffeehouse? Do you have an early uniform? We are especially looking for candid photos and documents about student organizations. Didn’t save anything from your UWGB days? Share a memory instead.

No matter when you went to school, we would love to see your UWGB historical items and hear your stories. Whether you want to send us a story/memory; a digital image; or are ready to part with the original item, you may contact the Archives at: or 920-465-2539. 

Who knows?  Your photo might be highlighted in our popular Facebook feature, “Throwback Thursday!”  Check it out at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Archives and Area Research Center.
