Outstanding Student Award

Each semester the Alumni Association seeks to recognize our best by awarding an Outstanding Student Award. This award is given to only one student per semester with the goal of acknowledging and rewarding a graduating senior who successfully pursued an undergraduate degree at UW-Green Bay, particularly one who demonstrates growth and progress by learning, committing and “doing” on an extraordinary level.


All graduating seniors meeting the minimum criteria are eligible to apply for consideration by the Alumni Association’s Selection Committee.

  1. Graduating at the May 2017 commencement ceremony with an undergraduate degree.
  2. A minimum of 50 credits earned while attending UW-Green Bay (including credits in progress).
  3. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50.
  4. A strong involvement (officer/project leader) in campus and/or community extracurricular activities in and/or outside their academic major
