Although UW-Green Bay is intending to be open in fall and welcoming faculty, staff and students back on campus, some classes originally scheduled for in-person instruction will be moving online or having online aspects to them for the safety of the UW-Green Bay community. Current UW-Green Bay students who transitioned to online learning in Spring 2020 demonstrate that they are resilient problem-solvers and describe their experiences while providing some advice to future students…
“Having classes that are all online or majority online can be tough, but my professors at UWGB never made me feel alone on this journey. It’s easy to forget that any annoyances we may have with online classes, our professors do too, so they are more than willing to go out of their way to help. Plus with options for Zoom meetings and hybrid courses meeting every other week, you still get the chance to form relationships with your professors (which is the best part of college!). The largest piece of advice I have related to online courses is to stay up-to-date with your UWGB email because it holds important information and will be your lifeline while not in the classroom!”
Faculty and staff in the Cofrin School of Business spent some time putting a video together reassuring students that no matter what this fall brings as a result of the pandemic, they are prepared to help students to continue on the path in pursuit of their higher education and career goals. Watch it, here.
“In performance terms, Alicia Birder is an acorn. She has her own enterprise (Birder Studio of Performing Arts), her own theater troupe (Birder Players) and a theater (Broadway Theatre) in which shows are present at a regular pace. Perhaps most prominent is the group of young singers of Birder Studio of Performing Arts that is part of the chorale’s annual “Holiday Pops” showcase at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.”
As the fall semester draws ever closer, UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus is preparing to welcome their students back onto the campus.
We spoke with Rachele Bakic, the executive director of Admissions at the school, who explained, “In Admissions, we are going to start tours on all four campuses, and those will be by appointment only. Right now our number is 10 people or less for the individual campuses.“
(Formerly) UW-Manitowoc, along with-UW Sheboygan and UW-Marinette, were paired up with UW-Green Bay in 2018 when the UW Board of Regents paired all schools in the system with a larger school in the area to allow for smaller schools to thrive.
