A typical UW-Green Bay welcome

Mild temperatures, sunshine and smiles were the order of the day when an army of volunteers — faculty, staff, administrators, students, alumni and friends — pitched in to get about 600 new freshmen into their new rooms in a matter of a few hours. Once again, thanks to the organization of Residence Life, it ran like clockwork and new Phoenix families received a very warm UWGB welcome.

Reminder: Freshman Move-in Day volunteers

Thank you to those who have already volunteered to assist with freshmen move-in day on Sunday, August 30th from 8:30 a.m. until noon. Traditionally, faculty and staff have assisted our newest students as they move to campus. In the past, our new Phoenix families have been very appreciative and relieved to arrive on campus to find conveniently located information tables, staff directing traffic and others awaiting to help tote boxes and bags. The Office of Residence Life is asking that you be one of the volunteers who will both welcome and assist our new students with their physical move to UWGB. This small gift of your time and energy could have a huge impact on our students’ engagement and retention. If interested, please complete this short Qualtrics form by Thursday, July 30. Questions? Contact the Office of Residence Life, 465-2040 or by email, housing@uwgb.edu.

Phoenix Park a hit during welcome week

First week events, UW-Green BayStudent success is often tied to engagement. UW-Green Bay students took advantage of the beautiful weather, and the new volleyball courts situated in Phoenix Park to engage in a little friendly volleyball competition last weekend. They enjoyed the annual Res Life Olympics, Backyard Bash, Groovin Grounds and more, during “Welcome Week.” Campus welcomed approximately 600 new students this year, helping them acclimate to their home-away-from-home. Classes began for all students on Sept. 2.

Move-In Day isn’t over yet… join Campus Welcome at 3:30 pm


Faculty and staff are invited to join the FOCUS team in welcoming the Class of 2018 at the Kress Event Center at 3:30 p.m. today (Thursday, Aug. 28). The Campus Welcome is the official kick off to FOCUS Orientation which runs through Saturday night. During this hour-long event, our newest students will hear from campus leadership, participate in some activities and be warmly welcomed by their new community.

One more Convocation Week event: Move-in Day

Freshman Move-in Day is Thursday, Aug. 28, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and noon. John Gerow of Residence Life says the initial appeal for volunteers met with a strong response from faculty and staff, but more help is needed. “Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to help greet, welcome and assist our new residential freshmen as they move into housing. Parents and students are always very appreciative of the help provided by faculty, staff, student government leaders, and student athletes.” Residence Life is requesting volunteers to assist students in a variety of capacities, including the staffing of information tables, directing traffic, physically assisting students with move-in, and greeting parents and students. Those interested in participating are reminded to email Residence Life.

Reminder: Freshman Move-in Day volunteers

Already distributed to all faculty and staff members but repeated here for the record: Freshmen move-in day takes place Thursday, Aug. 28, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and lasting until about noon. It’s a UW-Green Bay tradition, and parents and incoming students are always very appreciative and impressed by the help provided by faculty, staff, and student athletes, and student government leaders. The Office of Residence Life is requesting volunteers to assist students in a variety of capacities, including the staffing of information tables, directing traffic, physically assisting students with move-in, and greeting parents and students.  Those interested in participating are reminded to email housing@uwgb.edu.
 

Move-in day memories: Video, photos shine spotlight on big day

Another academic year is officially under way, and with it all the campus life that makes the UW-Green Bay experience what it is. For about three-quarters of the University’s new freshmen, residence hall living is part of the equation, with the class of 2017 having settled into its new digs Thursday (Aug. 29) during freshman move-in day. About 600 of the University’s 800 or so freshmen are living on campus, and they were assisted last week by countless volunteers who made move-in day a success. Our UW-Green Bay News video captured the highlights, and we’ve also got a sampling of local media coverage from the big day. You can check it out, here:
