GB Orientation is moving online for 2020

Keeping the safety of incoming UW-Green Bay students and their guests in mind, GB Orientation is moving online for 2020. The GB Orientation planning team is transforming the experience from a one-day in-person event into a dynamic program that will guide students throughout the summer. Incoming students are directed to continue to sign-up for their GB Orientation date in June via the GB Orientation webpage. On that date, students will be connecting virtually with an academic advisor to develop their fall schedule. Then over the summer, additional information and resources will be released inviting incoming students to connect directly with students, faculty and staff online through videos, group chats, virtual panels, Q&A sessions and more. For more information as it become available, please visit the GB Orientation webpage.
