Stephanie opened her brief remarks to the audience of 5,000-plus at the Kress Events Center by praising UW-Green Bay’s top-notch faculty and staff, and thanking her parents, Janice and Tom. She went on to sing the praises of a broad-based liberal arts education. Even in a tough economy, she said, UW-Green Bay graduates have the ability to adapt and adjust thanks to their communication and critical thinking skills.

Freis, a psychology major, has been accepted at one of the nation’s top Ph.D. programs in social psychology, at Ohio State University, where she will pursue her career goal of becoming a university-level faculty member and researcher, with an eye toward serving disadvantaged populations.
