In the news: Press-Gazette column offers up-close look at Phuture Phoenix Day
Green Bay Press-Gazette reporter Patti Zarling on Thursday (Oct. 23) gave readers an inside look at UW-Green Bay’s signature Phuture Phoenix program, writing about last week’s tour days for the newspaper’s “Today’s Take” column. Zarling attended the second of two fall tour days last week, checking out the morning’s opening pep rally and talking to some students from Abrams Elementary School about their college aspirations. “ …how cool is it that the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay runs its Phuture Phoenix program, offering Green Bay area fifth-graders a close-up look at campus life?” Zarling writes. “They get to see what the future could be. Those in charge say kids are fascinated by the idea of living on campus and about the chance to choose their own classes.” You can read Zarling’s full column, and check out some great Phuture Phoenix photos.
