Campus and community alike got the chance to have a blast while learning more about UW-Green Bay Nov. 15, during the first-ever UW-Green Bay Day at Lambeau Field.
Part of UW-Green Bay’s partnership with the Green Bay Packers, the event offered a little something for everyone. Eric Craver, director of external relations with UW-Green Bay’s Division of Outreach and Adult Access, talked with UW-Green Bay News about this great day in Green Bay.
“It’s the first year of UW-Green Bay Day at Lambeau Field, and this came out of a partnership between us and the Green Bay Packers.
With the partnership, our common goal is to elevate awareness of the Green Bay area for a number of different reasons. We want to increase awareness of those things that are offered at the University — not only opportunities to go and earn your degree, both as a traditional student or earn your degree online as a returning adult — but also for the many programs and services that the University has to offer.
We’ve got students here, we have alumni, we have our student-athletes here; we’ve got attractions for adults, for families, for Packer fans, for UW-Green Bay fans, and for those who just want something really cool to do on a Saturday, right here in Green Bay.
We want people to come in, we want people to say ‘hey, UW-Green Bay and the Green Bay Packers, they’re a team. They’re in this together to promote different opportunities for members of the community to come out to Lambeau Field and just have a really good time.’ So that’s the most important thing.
The other thing that I want to happen is that people find out some of the things that UW-Green Bay has to offer for members of our community, and for those who are thinking about UW-Green Bay as a destination for college. It’s a fantastic school within a fantastic University of Wisconsin System, and we’re anxious to tell you all about us.”
