Snapshots: Highlights of Alumni Reunion Days, Family Weekend

Organizers of UW-Green Bay Family Weekend and Alumni Reunion Days couldn’t have been luckier with the late fall weather that greeted their events over the weekend. The most-well attended events included the horse-pulled hayrides with nearly 700 people enjoying leisurely tours of campus; the Green and White Scrimmages featuring Phoenix basketball teams; the Lambeau Cottage campfire; the Saturday luncheon; the alumni photo show; and more.

A spirited Phoenix Friday… and Saturday… and Sunday

Every Friday is #Phoenix Friday, but this week (Friday, October 24) organizers cranked it up a notch with a mini-pep rally, a meet and greet with Green Bay men’s basketball coach Brian Wardle and a basketball-themed giveaway in the Union at Noon. Friday is your last chance to “Swap Your Logo” and save 20% on apparel at The Phoenix Bookstore, which has extended hours for Alumni Reunion Days and Family Weekend. Saturday Bookstore hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with face-painting and balloon-making from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday. There are activities every waking hour of the weekend beginning with a Shorewood social (1970s) at 3 p.m. Friday. Go Phoenix! Go Green Bay!
