They came, they toured, they played, they ate, and they energized UW-Green Bay. Nearly 1,600 fifth-graders spend much of their day at UW-Green Bay, Oct. 16-17. It was the 15th annual Phuture Phoenix Phuture Phoenix Campus Visit. Students from 26 Northeast Wisconsin Schools were inspired to “dare to dream about going to college.”
UW-Green Bay’s signature Phuture Phoenix program partners with schools that have high percentages of students from low-income families and encourages students to graduate from high school and pursue a college education.
The program has hosted nearly 22,000 fifth-grade students during the annual campus visits every October since it began in 2003. More than 300 UW-Green Bay students volunteered to serve as role models and group leaders for the day and 107 faculty members participated in various activities and sharing their classrooms on campus.
