Slideshow: GPS students tackle ‘UWGB Trivia’
Students in the Phoenix GPS program — that’s the first-year retention initiative led by Prof. Denise Bartell of Human Development — enjoyed themselves in a UWGB Trivia Challenge Nov. 5 at the Union’s Phoenix B. Students worked in teams with each other and a University “celebrity” including Brenda Amenson-Hill, Stefan Hall, Deanne Kusserow, and Mark Olkowski). There was a “which story isn’t true” round, a “caption this” round and a “$100,000 question” round that had celebs feeding clues to get them to say a series of five UWGB-related words within 6o seconds. Staff members in the Archives unit of the Cofrin Library contributed to the event’s success with extensive leg work in developing questions and documenting answers. Organizers say the event was a great way to teach first-year students a bit about UW-Green Bay history, to get to know some of our faculty and staff outside of the classroom or office, and get them excited to be here.
