Phoenix Friday starts this week

At UW-Green Bay, every Friday is Phoenix Friday. UWGB students, faculty and staff are encouraged to show their Phoenix pride by wearing their school colors and logos.

Phoenix Friday is back at The Phoenix Bookstore with a new deal every Friday. This week (Sept. 4) it is 20% off all drinkware (water bottles, coffee mugs or shaker bottles, etc.).

On Phoenix Fridays, A’viands customers who wear UWGB gear get 10% off at all campus dining locations (offer excludes the Corner Store).

Don’t miss the Green Bay athletic teams in action. Most fall teams are on the road this Friday but men’s soccer has a home match Sunday at 1 p.m. vs. Western Illinois at Santaga Stadium. As an added bonus, in celebration of UW-Green Bay’s 50th Anniversary year, admission to all 2015 regular season soccer games is free, waiving the usual $7 entry cost. Go Green Bay!
