As you encounter groups small and large, please be sure to extend a warm Phoenix welcome to these future students!

Admitted students to UW-Green Bay were the special guests of UWGB Chancellor Gary and Georgia Miller Tuesday, April 14, when they hosted an Admitted Student Reception at Lambeau Field. The event was held in the fourth floor balcony overlooking the Packers Atrium. About 50 admitted students for Fall of 2015 attended with another 50-plus family members, as well as an entourage of faculty, staff, students and alumni, who welcomed the students to the Phoenix Family. Guests were treated to a Lambeau Field tour that included a special stop to the visiting team’s locker room.
“I wanted to thank you for putting on the Admitted Student Day at Lambeau,” said a parent of a local high school student in a follow-up e-mail. “My daughter is now very excited about attending UW-Green Bay in the fall. I was pleasantly surprised by all of the faculty, staff and students that were there sharing their experience and excitement for our campus. Tanya was a little apprehensive about staying at home and attending UWGB but now after all of the encouragement and her ability to see how much she can still be a part of the campus, she is very happy with her decision.” Said another parent, “Thank you for putting the time and resources towards this event. It does matter and make a difference!”
Chancellor Miller welcomed his guests to UW-Green Bay, and was followed in the program by guest speakers — student Hannah Stepp, alumnus Alex Tilton (manager of client services at Breakthrough Fuels), and faculty member Denise Bartell. Bridget Derge, from UWGB’s Green Bay One Stop Shop (Gboss), spoke to the attendees about college affordability. Members from UWGB’s office of financial aid, registration, orientation, study abroad, athletics, diversity, and others, were part of a resource team and fair.
Organizer of the event, Jen Jones, asked that current faculty, staff and students be recognized for their hard work in making this first-time event a successful reality.
This coming Friday (Feb. 6) is the third of five Admitted Student Days to encourage would-be students to commit to UW-Green Bay. As always, if you see them and their guides in the halls, say “hi,” engage and let them know the supportive environment they can expect at UW-Green Bay during their time here. Remaining Admitted Student Days are Feb. 20 and March 6.
Let’s join our friends in Admissions in celebrating those who have been admitted to UW-Green Bay. Beginning this Friday (Jan. 16), admitted students will be taking an important step in confirming their decision to attend UW-Green Bay by coming to campus and being met with a reception, a visit with campus faculty and staff, tours, and answers to their next questions about financial aid, housing, etc. If you see them, engage, and let them know the supportive environment they can expect at UW-Green Bay during their time here. It will likely be UW-Green Bay’s last in-person contact with students and families until after they’ve made their final decisions and, we hope, join us for FOCUS sessions in early summer. Admitted Student Days are:
• Jan. 16
• Jan. 30
• Feb. 6
