Dee-1, a rapper who promotes education and financial responsibility visited the Weidner Center on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018 on a tour with Sallie Mae, the country’s saving, planning and paying for college company. More than 2,000 students from Wisconsin were to have reported to attend. See more.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 18-19, 2018, UW-Green Bay hosted an event for Preble High School. The event was inspired by the draft day held last spring at Lambeau Field. Preble counselors approached UW-Green Bay to host a dynamic and interesting higher education-focused event at their school, attended by all 550 seniors over the course of two days. The event included activities from Student Life, the Kress Events Center, Residence Life, the University Union, Financial Aid and Admissions. Students also attended one-on-one brief counseling sessions with admissions counselors. Special thanks to all those from UW-Green Bay for hosting activities during this program, and a special kudos to Samantha Post in Admissions for coordinating this energetic and engaging event.
Here’s more media on UW-Green Bay sending out acceptance letters via Instagram.
Making statewide news this week is a story about UW-Green Bay now announcing prospective students’ acceptance into one of the four UW-Green Bay campuses by Instagram, as well as traditional methods. Fox 11 was the first to report on the story.
You may recall media coverage in past years of prospective students receiving notification of their acceptance to UW-Green Bay via Snapchat. This year, to shift with technology innovations, staff from Admissions will be notifying accepted students of all four campuses of their acceptance via the UW-Green Bay Instagram. Students will begin receiving notice of admission for fall 2019 on Saturday, Sept. 15.
Prospective students and their guests will be on campus, this Friday, July 27 for the second Summer Preview Day. More than 200 registered guests will enjoy a campus tour, academic breakout session and resource fair (newly named “Phoenix Fest”) to learn about UW-Green Bay. Please give them a warm welcome.
Friday, July 13 marks the first Campus Preview Day of the summer. This large visit day, the first of our four, allows prospective students to meet faculty and staff, connect with current students and take a campus tour. Admissions anticipates more than 250 visitors for the event. Thank you for helping guests feel welcome in the campus community.
Not sure how those Badgers and Panthers slipped into the UW-Green Bay booth, but still, it was nice to see UW-Green Bay friends trying on their Phoenix wings at Summerfest last Friday, June 29, 2018. UW-Green Bay was one of the sponsors of “Show Your College Pride Day.”
