A challenge awaits
UW-Green Bay came in dead last compared to its UW peers with only 6 percent
of its alums "giving back." Help us move up the ranks with a small donation
during the annual Alumni Phone-a-thon. The format is different
alumni will be called one week each month during the academic year based
on area of study. The need hasn't changed proceeds go to scholarships
and academic programs. Private support makes a good University great!
