Close-ups: Spreading the #uwgblove

top-story-loveThere’s a lot to love about UW-Green Bay, and it’s easier to see this week, leading up to Valentine’s Day. Maybe you’ve seen the window art and messages across campus. Or the decorated “Tunnel of #uwgblove… the golf cart rides between the Union and Residence Life… the free hot chocolate/hot cider and chocolates… the free hugs from Phlash Phoenix… and more. Student photographer Sam Zingsheim captures the spirit of the week.
