UWPowersMe features very positive UW-Green Bay grad Jenna Richter

Some of you might remember recent UW-Green Bay student Jenna Richter. The May 2013 grad is this week’s guest tweeter at the UWPowersMe account for the UW System. We noticed today that she tweeted about 360° of Learning and also mentioned the Chancellor’s account, and earlier this week she name-dropped Profs. Phil Clampitt and Tim Meyer, and did a whole lot of reminiscing about how great things were and are at UWGB. Take a look.

More from the Twittering Chancellor: Art bombs, Bauer’s ‘TOSS,’ and more

Chancellor Tom Harden is roughly halfway through his one-week tenure as the official voice of the UW Powers Me Twitter account. Wednesday’s quick topics included a permanent home for  the Tom Harden “art bomb,” shout-outs to RecycleMania, student fishing guide JJ Malvitz and stone-cold cool Leonardo Da Vinci, among others; and a couple of references to Prof. Angela Bauer’s award-winning TOSS program. The Chancellor also broke the news about the “Best of Show” award for 360° of Learning. You can catch up on his tweets, and give him a follow, at http://twitter.com/UWpowersMe.
 

UW Powers Harden: One down, six more to go for first Chancellor on UW account

As we told you here yesterday, our own Chancellor Harden is now serving as the official voice of the UW Powers Me Twitter account for one week. Despite being on the road — he attended Sunday night’s Phoenix women’s game in Baton Rouge — Harden started Tweeting bright and early Monday (March 25), sharing photos and thoughts on basketball and much more. You can check out his tweets, and give him a follow. For more on this statewide initiative — and the guest tweeters who make it possible, check out our press release.

Chancellor Tom ‘Twitter’ Harden grabs UW System megaphone Monday

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden will become the first university administrator to take over the @UWPowersMe Twitter account Monday morning (March 25), guest-tweeting as the voice of the statewide campaign for one week. Harden, who has served as UW-Green Bay’s chancellor since 2009, will tweet about on-campus events, items in the news and his observations on the multifaceted benefits of a UW-Green Bay education. He hopes to offer the Twitter account’s followers a taste of campus life, and a look at how the University makes a difference in Northeastern Wisconsin and statewide.

“This is a terrific chance to showcase the UW-Green Bay experience, and to show a broader audience how a UW System education benefits not just our students and alumni, but indeed the entire state of Wisconsin,” Harden says. “I’ve often said I must have the greatest job in the world, to be part of this incredible campus community. Now I’m pleased I get to share that in a brand-new way.”

UW System’s David Giroux praised UW-Green Bay’s efforts to embrace social media. “UW-Green Bay already does a fantastic job of sustaining a strong presence on social media, so it’s only natural that @UWpowersMe should feature Chancellor Harden’s distinct voice.” Read more.

UW-Green Bay’s Harden first chancellor to take over statewide Twitter account

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden will become the first university administrator to take over the @UWPowersMe Twitter account March 25, guest-tweeting as the voice of the statewide campaign for one week.

Harden, who has served as UW-Green Bay’s chancellor since 2009, will tweet about on-campus events, items in the news and his observations on the multifaceted benefits of a UW-Green Bay education. He hopes to offer the Twitter account’s followers a taste of campus life, and a look at how the University makes a difference in Northeastern Wisconsin and statewide.

“I am truly excited to be taking over as the voice of the UW Powers Me Twitter account during the week of March 25,” Harden said. “This is a terrific chance to showcase the UW-Green Bay experience, and to show a broader audience how a UW System education benefits not just our students and alumni, but indeed the entire state of Wisconsin. I’ve often said I must have the greatest job in the world, to be part of this incredible campus community. Now I’m pleased I get to share that in a brand-new way.”

The @UWPowersMe Twitter account allows students, faculty, alumni — even chancellors — the opportunity to take control for one week, telling their UW story as only they can. It is a component of the social media arm of “Knowledge Powers Wisconsin,” the campaign that highlights how the UW System powers economic growth in Wisconsin, improving the state’s competitive edge by leveraging human capital, supporting business and industry and strengthening local communities.

The Twitter campaign began in February, with UW-Green Bay senior Nellie Schafer taking the reins during its second week. Schafer earned a reputation as a prolific, entertaining and informative guest-tweeter during her stint, using photos, videos, personal observations and more to bring the story of UW-Green Bay to an ever-increasing number of followers. UW System’s David Giroux praised UW-Green Bay’s efforts to embrace social media.

“UW-Green Bay already does a fantastic job of sustaining a strong presence on social media, so it’s only natural that @UWpowersMe should feature Chancellor Harden’s distinct voice. We’ve created a unique ‘curated’ account that tells the UW story using many voices. Students bring their own unique perspectives about their current experiences. Alumni demonstrate how their UW education is paying off. Chancellor Harden has the opportunity to show us, from a leadership perspective, how UW-Green Bay is strengthening the region in many ways.”

Latest from NellieLand

Keep spreading the word about the wonderful all-UWGB-all-the-time tweets from guest twitterer Nellie Schafer. And get a few more friends to “follow” her, if you can. She needs a late push to break the all-time guest record (which granted, is only one week old.)  Anyway, follow Nellie. There should be good stuff from tomorrow’s Senior Day and Pink Zone action from the Kress Events Center. https://twitter.com/UWpowersMe
 

Whoa, Nellie!

Remember the book Tuesdays With Morrie? Well, at UW-Green Bay we have Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and more with Nellie.  The posts today (Thursday) from UW System Designated Tweeter Nellie Schafer were mainly about UWGB history and old photos of the first Phoenix mascot and other bits of campus trivia.  Wednesday evening’s posts, however, were a little more animated, especially the “Harlem Shake” rehearsal at the Kress.  Wild stuff. Our intrepid reporter twitted a snapshot, click here. You can visit her full archive of tweets and links at https://twitter.com/UWpowersMe.

Schafer has another big day, tweet-wise

UW-Green Bay student Nellie Schafer continues to rack up the entertaining messages, photos and video clips at the @UWpowersMe Twitter account. She began Tuesday’s installment of her UW System guest-tweeting stint with an appearance on live local TV (albeit disguised as the Phoenix mascot) and followed that with some exciting classroom action, dissecting owl droppings. Oh, by the way, she’s also wearing a Nellie-cam on her head, capturing the day in photos every 30 seconds. See more.

Nellie, students to practice the Harlem Shake

The aforementioned Nellie Schafer will also be present at about 5:30 Wednesday (Feb. 20) when a good crowd of UW-Green Bay students get together to practice and film a Phoenix version of the highly popular “Harlem Shake” dance. There’s talk of a follow-up flash mob later in the week. Practice Wednesday will be in the “bowl” over at the Kress Events Center. Actually, faculty, staff, high-ranking administrators – they’ll take anybody – are welcome to join the students. The students have a Facebook page on this, at https://www.facebook.com/events/507527185964493/.
 

Hoops on TV: Women, men featured on ‘Good Day Wisconsin’   

It’s been a big week for Phoenix basketball, with the women cracking the top 25 for the first time this season and, on Tuesday (Feb. 19), being featured — along with their male counterparts — in four live segments on Fox 11’s “Good Day Wisconsin.” GDW reporter Emily Deem and crew were at the Kress Events Center bright (make that dark) and early this morning, talking with AD Ken Bothof, women’s Coach Kevin Borseth and the players (including Adrian Ritchie and Megan Lukan, along with men’s players Keifer Sykes and Brennan Cougill) about their stellar seasons.

Also making an appearance as the face behind the Phoenix was senior Nellie Schafer, women’s b-ball manager and this week’s voice of the @UWpowersMe System-wide Twitter account. Check out the segments, and follow Schafer, by clicking the links below:
