Fall 2024

Starting September 2024

GPS students start off their UW-Green Bay experience just like every other student, with Green Bay Orientation (GBO) and Green Bay Welcome. Once the semester starts, you will engage with university support systems through a course called GPS Tools for Success. Your advisor will take care of enrolling you in the class so there is nothing you need to do before classes start.

First Year Seminar

Fall Semester: September-December 2024

During the fall semester, all students take a First Year Seminar (FYS) that is taught by a UW-Green Bay instructor. All students get to choose their own FYS based on their interest. Options include a broad range of topics from environmental issues to superheroes! This class will help you continue to develop and sharpen the skills you need to be successful in college. Your mentor will be there to help you get connected on campus, making sure you feel at home, and will help you stay on course and headed toward your educational goals throughout your Phoenix journey!

Tools for Success

Fall Semester: September-December 2024

During the fall semester you will enroll in a course called GPS Tools for Success. Tools for Success is designed to enrich components of your First Year Seminar to provide opportunities to learn skills to support your college success. This extended orientation helps support the transition to college life and further develop academic and life skills specific to you. You will be assigned to a section of Tools for Success that is aligned to help support where you are in your life journey.
