Great Beginnings

What to expect

The first week of classes means "Great Beginnings" (otherwise known as "GB Week"). In the first week of classes Fall semester we officially welcome back all of our students to the UWGB campus.

During GB Week, the University will host many special activities for the campus community, including comedians, bands, dances, recreational sports, and movies. In recent years we have had even had nationally known musical acts play our campus. Check out the calendar to see what GB Week has in store for 2017! (2017 event information not yet available...please check back!)

"Great Beginnings" provides students with opportunities to make friends; introduces students to campus and community people, resources, and services; and, perhaps most importantly, celebrates the start of a new academic year.
