Academic Recognition Night with the Phoenix is Feb. 14

Excellence in academics is at the core of what we do as a university, and that will be emphasizing that commitment at the men’s basketball game on Thursday, Feb.14, 2019 at the Resch Center. We will be recognizing the many student-athletes who have earned a GPA of 3.5 or better in the spring or fall 2018 during a halftime ceremony. To help honor these student-athletes and thank those who contribute to their academic success, Athletics, with Chancellor Miller, invite all UW-Green Bay faculty and staff to attend the game as guests. Athletics will provide a ticket free of charge for you and a guest. Additional tickets can also be purchased for $10 adult, $6 youth. Student-athletes’ success is made possible because of what you do for all of students. That is why faculty and staff in attendance will be recognized during a pre-game announcement prior to the National Anthem.

Here are the details:
