First-year students move in at UW-Green Bay | WLUK

It’s a day some recent high school graduates await. It’s also a day many parents dread. A little more than 700 first year students moved into their dorms at UW-Green Bay Sunday. Hannah Ries is from Menominee, Michigan. She’s going to be studying nursing and just got settled in at her freshman dorm. UW-Green Bay was a good fit for her for a few reasons.

“Close to home kind of, I have a lot of family down here, friends and I just liked the campus a lot,” Ries said. Her mom knows that she’ll enjoy her new college journey. See the story via First-year students move in at UW-Green Bay | WLUK.

It starts with Move-in Day and is followed with a week’s worth of activities to help students find their way around campus, develop new friendships, and perhaps find a few mentors. See the video that captures a whirlwind first few days of the 2019-20 academic year for first-year students who are excited to begin their college journey, and the sentiment of a parent who is ready to let go.

Around Labor Day Weekend? Please help with Campus Move-in

Will you and your family members be around Labor Day Weekend? Could you spare a few hours? Residence Life could sure use your help welcoming our freshmen class to UW-Green Bay. First-year students will move in to their assigned housing on Sunday, Sept. 1, from 8 a.m. – Noon. Traditionally, faculty, staff, and now student leaders have been on site to assist our new students as they move to campus and take one of their first steps towards completing their education. This can be a stressful time for both the student and family/friends who may be assisting them. In the past, our Phoenix families have been very appreciative and relieved to arrive on campus to find conveniently located information tables, staff directing traffic and others awaiting to help tote boxes and bags into the buildings. The Office of Residence Life is asking that you be one of the volunteers who will both welcome and assist our students with their physical move into student housing. This small gift of your time and energy could have a significant impact on our students’ engagement and retention. If interested, please complete this short Qualtrics form by Friday, May 24.
