Great Decisions Lecture Series: Korean Peninsula is Wednesday, Feb. 17, 6:30 p.m.

Join David Fields from UW-Madison for the first lecture in a series on Wednesday, Feb. 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The Korean Peninsula is facing a defining era. Attempts by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump to repair the rift between North and South have lost any momentum as Pyongyang continues to test long-range missiles for its nuclear weapons program. As the rift between the U.S. and China grows further, South Korea may end up in the middle of the two superpowers. What does the future hold for the U.S. relationship with the ROK?

TRIO tops 1,000 holiday cards for military vets!

Their goal was a daunting 900 cards.  With the help of many people across campus and throughout the community, staff in the TRIO Office at UW-Green Bay not only met the goal, but exceeded it by over 100 cards!  “Thank you to all who donated their time and/or resources from their holiday, paper-writing and exam preparations to assist in this endeavor.” Participants included UWGB students and staff, SASU, the Boy and Girl Scouts of De Pere, the Vets 4 Vets Club, and A’Viands. “Together with the TRIO Upward Bound high school students, we were able to make the holidays a little brighter for the residents of the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King and the Western Nebraska Veterans Home.  The cards were very creative, festive and thankful.  A shout out to you all – thank you very much!”

TRIO and Vets 4 Vets will make holiday cards for vets… with your help

Again this year, TRIO and the student Vets 4 Vets club intend to make a difference in the lives of American veterans residing at the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King, Wis., and the Western Nebraska Veterans Home in Scottsbluff. For some vets, organizers note, the only holiday card they received last year was from the TRIO Upward Bound students and Vets 4 Vets members. “Please consider assisting us in this effort. We need to make about 900 cards in less than a month! We did it last year (barely, but we did it), and with your help we can do it again. And you don’t need to be the ‘crafty’ sort in order to help!” On Saturday, Nov. 14, from 1:30 to 5 p.m., there will be a card-making party in the Alumni Rooms in the University Union. All supplies will be provided, as well as examples from Pinterest and advice from ‘craftier’ participants if you need inspiration or a template… or you can help simply by writing notes inside the cards. A’viands will be providing cookies, punch and cappuccino. Members of the Vets 4 Vets Club will be there, as well as the Upward Bound students and members of SASU. Come join the fun, and help us let a veteran know how much his or her service to our country is appreciated. For more information, check out our slideshow outside our office in Student Services at SS-1721, just down the hall from the Dean of Students office. Better yet, stop on in and see us! Or email Jayne or call 465-2445. If your organization is interested, we would love to speak with you. Please help us make a difference!”
