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 applying to UWGB, or if you have suggestions for the admissions team, please contact Jen Jones at jonesj@uwgb.edu.
