P-G: UWGB sees growth in NF numbers

UW-Green Bay entered the fall semester expecting a slightly larger freshmen class, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported last week. The 2015-16 freshmen class was expected to go up about 2 percent from last year to 773 students. In the new class are 53 international students, a group the school is working to increase as both a way to raise revenue and to increase the multicultural experience for all students. Reporter Patti Zarling talked to outgoing admissions director Pamela Harvey-Jacobs about efforts to enhance recruiting with Green Bay area high school students, and to Brent Blahnik, director of international education, about UWGB’s 120 international students from 30 countries, with the most growth from China and South Korea where the middle class is expanding.
