They’re billing it as the “4th Annual UWGB Convocation Open” (some call it Divotfest) to be held the day after convocation on Thursday, Aug. 27 at the Shorewood Golf Course, and it is fun. The format for this social outing is a three-or-four person scramble that allows golfers of all abilities to participate and meet others in an informal setting. The event is open to faculty, staff, and retirees, with the teams being selected by the Planning Committee, chaired by Steve Meyer along with Joe Schoenebeck and John Katers. Chancellor Miller has once again been invited to hit the ceremonial first drive at 1 p.m., with tee times to follow. (If the chancellor is unavailable, organizers are trying to get Brett Favre, who seems to be everywhere around Green Bay, these days.) Anyway, what better way to prepare for the upcoming semester by taking a half day of vacation and commiserating with others while enjoying a round of golf for $10 ($15 if taking a cart)? Please contact Joe Schoenebeck by Monday, Aug. 24, to reserve your spot in the outing. Non-golfers are encouraged to stop by later in the afternoon for refreshments and conversation.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of UW-Green Bay, the Green Bay Athletic Department has announced a number of new initiatives for the 2015-16 season:
For the first time since 2011, Green Bay Athletics will induct a new class into the Athletics Hall of Fame this coming winter, scheduled for a home basketball weekend. Nominations are open to the public.
The department will release a list of its Top 50 moments in Phoenix athletics history.
Fans can enjoy free admission to all home Green Bay soccer games for both the men and the women.
Summer Campus Preview Days had UWGB’s enrollment team reaching out to staff members across campus to help lead tours. Answering the call were Jeff Willems (Residence Life), Jena Richter (Marketing), Liz Teubert and Kari Moody (Advancement). Campus Visit Experience Coordinator Katelyn Santy expresses her appreciation on behalf of the Admissions team to staff and the faculty who assisted with the academic sessions (Bill Lepley, Jim Loebl, Kay Voss, Jamie Froh Tyrrell, Gail Trimberger, Doreen Higgins, Ryan Martin, Kate Burns, John Katers, Steve Meyer, Mike Zorn, James Marker, Steve Newton, Karla Miller, Jeff Benzow and Denise Bartell, who was a co-presenter during the main presentation). Santy also thanks staff members who participated in the resource fair and leaders of the University Union and Shorewood Golf Course (specifically Lee Reinke), A’viands, and The Phoenix Bookstore —“they were instrumental in coordination of the events.”.
Beginning this Sunday (Aug. 16) and running through Friday (Aug. 24), the Operation Department again will be in full swing performing their annual floor care during the afternoon and evening hours. Please honor all signs and postings in conjunction with these projects so the floors are ready for another school year. During floor care week, Operations will not be able to honor office moves, event set-ups, or other potential events.
