Many alumni have shared amazing stories of how their lives were transformed during their time as a student at UW-Green Bay. Some alumni are doing transformational work in their careers and are making the world a better place. As UWGB celebrates its 50th Anniversary, 50 alumni who have experienced the “UW-Green Bay Transformation” will be featured. If you have a story to share, please email Director of Alumni Relations Kari Moody with details at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit this survey for specific questions that will assist you in telling your story. A library of stories will be compiled throughout the next several months to be shared in the 2015-2016 academic year.
Our new website is still awesome… In September, the UW-Green Bay Alumni website received a complete overhaul and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Visit the website often for information on alumni events and opportunities. This website is just for you so check it out!

You…UW-Green Bay Alumni, are critical players on our admissions team. Who better to tell prospective students about the amazing people and opportunities at UW-Green Bay? It is our hope that you are bold about sharing the features of our wonderful campus to all the people searching for higher education opportunities.
The admissions team is looking to increase the number of students who choose UWGB and we are formalizing the process for following up on your initial engagement. We call it “Refer-a-Phoenix.” It would simply require you to take a minute to fill out a form at www.uwgb.edu/refer. Someone from the admissions team will follow up with your potential student, answer any questions they might have about their college search and encourage a visit. (We have great success enrolling students who make a campus visit!)
In the meantime, if you have questions about how students can apply to UWGB, or if you have suggestions for the admissions team, please contact Jen Jones at email@example.com.
