Campus Visit Day Information

The following procedures will need to be followed to ensure that our Phuture Phoenix Day runs smoothly.

On Campus Visit Day...

Bus transportation

Please have your students ready to load the buses as soon as they arrive at school and have attendance taken.

You will receive a listing of your groups that have been numbered for tours on Phuture Phoenix day. Please have students enter the buses by group number, so that they may exit ready to find their seats and meet their role model pairs. The role models will be stationed in the Weidner Theatre holding numbers for your students to see so that finding each other will be simplified.  Please Note:  Role Models will NOT be waiting outside of the Weidner or in the foyer with group signs.  Please enter the Weidner Center and guide your students directly into the Theatre.  Volunteers and staff will be on hand to help you find your school's pre-assigned seats.

If you are sharing a bus with another school, please have children stay together in their groups on the bus by school so that exiting the bus will be more organized.


Please review proper behavior and field trip etiquette before students arrive at UW-Green Bay.  Also, please tell students that we cannot accommodate backpacks, books, large purses, etc. during the tour. Please leave these articles at home or at school during the field trip.

Arrival and Pickup Instructions:

We are pleased your students will be attending the events on Phuture Phoenix Day. Please share the following information with your bus drivers prior to your arrival on the UW-Green Bay campus.

  1. Please arrive at the Weidner Center between  9:00 and 9:30 a.m. Buses should enter at the University's Main Entrance,  and proceed to the Weidner Center Front Entrance. All buses from your school should unload at the Front Entrance of the Weidner Center.  Please remain on your bus until a Phuture Phoenix Volunteer informs you when to unload.
  2. As your students are unloading from the bus, they will be entering the Weidner Center directly. Volunteers will escort them to their seats inside the Weidner Theatre.  Your student's Role Models will be waiting at your assigned seats with your student's group numbers.  The program is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m.  After unloading, buses will park in the Weidner Center lot and remain in that location for the day.
  3. At the end of Phuture Phoenix Day, UWGB Role Models will escort students to their busses in the Weidner Center lot.

We look forward to your arrival on Phuture Phoenix Day! 

After the Campus Visit...

Please talk to your students about their experiences on campus and encourage their questions regarding their future education.  Phuture Phoenix has designed a program to continue interaction with your students from 5th grade through 12th grade.

Thank You...

...for your support and cooperation to make Phuture Phoenix possible!
