Taking Phoenix Friday ‘virtual’

Per the suggestion of Ryan Martin, associate dean for the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, we would like to extend the invitation to take Phoenix Friday (the end-of-week showing of Phoenix Pride by wearing green, UW-Green Bay or Phoenix gear) virtual. How do you join in? Easy! Don your gear wherever you may be, and share a photo with both the usual hashtag #uwgbphoenixfriday but also with the limited-time edition hashtag, #virtualphoenixfriday! We look forward to seeing you and your Phoenix gear on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram as well as remote meeting solutions!

Gear up for another Phoenix Friday

Every Friday is Phoenix Friday at UW-Green Bay. Here are some fun events happening around campus!

  • Free coffee at the Garden Café for those showing their Phoenix spirit by wearing spirit wear.
  • $5 Friday lunch at the Cloud Commons for faculty and staff
  • Check out AJ Smith at Groovin’ Grounds, Joker at CheapSeats and the Christine Style Retrospective in the Lawton Gallery.
