FOCUS

Summer Connections

What to expect

Throughout the summer you will receive a communication from FOCUS each month. If you plan to live on campus, your housing information and room assignment will be mailed in July. You will also receive a letter from a UW-Green Bay Student Ambassador that will meet you at Orientation and stay in touch over the summer.

Our goal is to provide you with essential information and key contacts on campus. The Student Ambassadors are trained students eager to help you as you transition to college.
