Battleship in the Kress Pool

Photos: It’s a war of water when Battleship takes over the Kress Center pool

Twenty-five teams of UW-Green Bay students battled to stay afloat while sinking their competitors during “Canoe Battleship” at the Kress Events Center pool, Thursday, Jan. 30. The winners of the aquatic competition got their names on the canoe paddle and a victory t-shirt.

“It’s super fun, it’s unique and different. It’s not something you get to do every day. And our turnout is great,” Casey Pivonka, Kress Event Center recreation coordinator, told members of the media.

Photographer Dan Moore’s Top 10 Photos of 2019

Editor’s note: In his role as UW-Green Bay photographer/videographer Dan Moore writes one blog post a year, always a reflection back on his favorite photos of the year. See his take on 2019…

As both the new year (definitely) and a new decade (depending on your stance in the “there-was-no-year-zero debate”) begin, here are 10 of my favorite photos from last year:

Lunar Eclipse Over the Cofrin Library

Top 10 2019-1-1

This was right in my wheelhouse as a photographer. It was about zero degrees, which was neat, and the sky was clear, so all I had to figure out a way to frame things in an interesting way and be done before I lost feeling in my fingers.

Krash the Kress

Krash the Kress

Krash the Kress is such a fun event, and this crew looked to be having the most fun of all.

Joe Schoenebeck Feature

Joe Schoenebeck

If you’ve ever met Joe, you already know that his enthusiasm for science demonstrations is unsurpassed. The challenge with this shot was getting an image where the spark was arcing. It took a lot of frames but I got one.

Rehearsals for Julius Caesar

Top 10 2019-4

I can count on getting interesting expressions from the actors in the Theater program, but this shot form the rehearsals for Julius Caesar is my favorite.

Phoenix Sculpture in the Fall

Top 10 2019-5

Shortly after the Phoenix Rising sculpture was installed, I was walking from the Cofrin Library to Theatre Hall and noticed how the trees framed the sculpture, and thought, “That’s going to look pretty great with some fall colors.” It did.

Goat Yoga in the Quad

Top 10 2019-6

Hello there, goat!

Camp Lloyd Buddies

Top 10 2019-7

The connections built during Camp Lloyd are truly amazing, and I think this photo captures the bond between the campers and the UW-Green Bay student buddies.

GB Welcome Party at Lambeau

Top 10 2019-8

As part of GB Welcome, freshmen participated in a community service project followed by at party inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. This year’s freshmen were serious about having a good time.

Winter in Autumn

Top 10 2019-9

An early snowfall blanketed campus before all of the leaves had a chance to fall. I thought this maple was particularly stunning set against the whites of the sky, snow and science buildings.

Commencement

Top 10 2019-10

Many years ago, when I graduated from UW-Green Bay, I remember the feeling of looking around the Weidner Center for family and generally trying to soak in as much of the atmosphere as possible. It’s something you only get to do once, but I love seeing the looks on the faces of each semesters’ graduates and having a pretty good idea what they are feeling.

Video, photos and podcast links: Common CAHSS 2019

In recognition of world Human Rights Day on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019, the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences hosted the inaugural Common CAHSS 2019: Human Rights event at the Weidner Center. This year marked the 71st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Throughout the day, there was a total of 30 scheduled activities, capped off with keynote speaker Rais Bhuiyan, founder of the non-profit “World Without Hate.”

Kwanzaa Celebration

Photos: Kwanzaa Celebration, Dec. 7, 2019

UW-Green Bay’s Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA) Office, Office of Student Life and the Black Student Union (BSU) welcomed the community for a celebration of Kujichagulia (self-determination) at UW–Green Bay’s annual Kwanzaa Celebration, Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019. Delivering the keynote address was Robyn Davis, president and CEO of Brown County United Way.

Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African and African-American culture and identity, based on the seven principles of African heritage. This year, we celebrate the principle of Kujichagulia, the principle of self-determination and the right of persons to speak for themselves and decide their own destiny. All are welcome to attend regardless of background, faith or culture, as we celebrate the commonalities and values that bring us together rather than the differences that drive us apart.

In addition to a dinner menu celebrating African and African-American heritage and cuisine, the Kwanzaa celebration featured a performance by the Appleton North Step Team.

Video: Platinum Shoe Toss

It’s a tradition of UW-Green Bay graduates to leave a bit of themselves behind as they depart campus. Many toss a pair of old sneakers into the “Shoe Tree.” Symbolic to UW-Green Bay’s 100th Commencement, student speaker Hannah Malmberg tossed her platinum-coated sneakers .
