The 5th Annual UW-Green Bay Retiree Association Benefit Golf Outing will be held at the Shorewood Golf Course Thursday, Aug. 13. Proceeds benefit the Retiree Association Scholarship. Retired UW-Green Bay faculty and staff are hosting the event, but everyone is welcome to play, and non-golfers are welcome to join the picnic-style buffet and post-golf festivities. Register by Friday, Aug. 7. Visit the website.
On Wednesday, Sept. 2, UW-Green Bay alumni, faculty and staff will “Turn the Market Green” with a special UWGB night at the downtown Farmers Market, timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of UW-Green Bay’s founding. Attendees are invited to wear their Phoenix Green and to visit the UW-Green Bay booth near the corner of Broadway and Hubbard streets between 5 and 8 p.m. Music by the faculty band Brass Differential (that’s a change from our previous post), sampling of Titletown Brewing Company’s commemorative Phoenix Brew and root beer, and drawings, giveaways and special guests will be among the attractions. Admission is free. For the full news release on the range of Sept. 2 events.
It’s a very special Phoenix Friday this week (July 24). Get all “Decked Out” in your UW-Green Bay gear and then “Hit the Deck” for Phoenix Friday on the Fox. We’re told you can save 20 percent on apparel at The Phoenix Bookstore this Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., before heading down to Phoenix Friday on the Fox, downtown at the CityDeck. For details on the evening event.
Already distributed campuswide but repeated here for the record: A campus farewell reception for Vice Chancellor Jeanne Stangel is scheduled for next Wednesday (July 29) from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Union’s 1965 Room.
Friday (July 17) is the first of summer’s three Campus Preview Days. Our friends in Admissions share the terrific news that we are already at capacity and have closed registration for the July 17 and 31 dates. (Some openings remain for the Aug. 7 preview.) This year’s participation is already guaranteed to exceed last year’s final count, which is good news as UW-Green Bay prioritizes enrollment of potential new freshmen. The program tomorrow begins at 9 a.m. in the Union’s Phoenix Room, with tours of campus from 9:45 to 11:30 a.m. The morning ends with ice cream and a resource fair in the Union around noon. Be sure to say ‘hi’ and ‘welcome’ to our guests!
