The PRIDE Shirt

You get to be involved in creating a UWGB alumni tradition…The PRIDE Shirt!  Each year graphic design alumni will create different t-shirt designs and our alumni will vote on their favorite. The winning design will be unveiled at ‘Alumni Reunion Days’ and is the official t-shirt of the event. In fact, one PRIDE shirt will be included with each registration for ‘Alumni Reunion Days!’

You can also purchase the unique collectible PRIDE shirt throughout the year as a spirited way to show your pride and support scholarships. The best part of this new tradition is that proceeds will support the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship which is awarded to students following in the footsteps of a family member who attended UW-Green Bay. You not only get a super cool t-shirt but you are supporting students attending UW-Green Bay. What a great way to show your pride and give back!

So watch the Alumni Facebook page and Twitter for the designs to choose from. This is going to be fun!!!
