Phoenix Phanatics…Connect, win!

UW-Green Bay is launching a new social media engagement program where alumni, students and anyone interested in the University can show their support by engaging on social networks and earning rewards through our new Phoenix Phanatics Rewards program.

Developed in partnership with Lodestone Sports, the leader in social media programs for college sports, fans receive points for participating in social media activities such as ‘liking’ Facebook posts, commenting, sharing, tweeting hashtags, re-tweeting, watching a YouTube video, checking in on Foursquare or Facebook and more.

The UWGB Alums Facebook Page is one of these pages!

The program tracks overall point leaders from all participating UW-Green Bay departments. In addition, fans can sign up for special promotions, coupons or become the Fan of the Week on Facebook pages. This will allow UW-Green Bay to create a unique experience and promotion for each department, drive awareness and reward our fans. There will be grand prizes, giveaways and special fan experiences.

This is just the beginning as participating UW-Green Bay departments will be adding new social platforms and additional ways to earn points and engage. So check it out and start earning rewards today!  What a fun and easy way to stay connected to your alma mater!
