#uwgblove week, Feb. 13-17

Feb. 13-17 is #uwgblove week. Watch for positivity and warm fuzzies around campus all week long and join in the conversation on social media about what and who you love at UW-Green Bay. There will be a drawing to win Skull Candy Smokin’ Buds 2 Wireless, free treats and other fun around campus.

Finding #uwgblove

It’s easy to find love at UWGB. Led by social media coordinator Jena Richter, a handful of campus personnel left surprise post-it notes with inspirational messages, baked treats and gave them away (no strings attached), decorated a hallway, created a video, and designed special #uwgblove valentines, all in the name of #uwgblove. Organizers are hoping it put a smile on your face. And in the end, even Phlash got over the Valentine’s Day blues, thanks to a few UWGB students who were generous with their affection. Happy #uwgblove week!
