Within my first semester, I fell in love with the campus (trails, trees, tunnels and toilets!) and with my classes. I also immediately got a wonderful job on campus and joined an intramural sport and extracurricular activities and made many friends.Read More
I have met so many great people in the few months that I have been here. All of the RAs are fantastic people and are super fun to hang out with. My only thing is that the campus is very secluded and it can be hard to get somewhere if you don't have a car. But that also makes the campus very nice because it is a lot quieter than a city campus and because it creates its own little campus community. It is also a very beautiful campus with all of the arboretum trails.Read More
As an outdoor kind of girl, I love the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay's campus. It is cozily nestled on a beautiful nature reserve teeming with trails that students can use for running, hiking, biking, as well as cross country skiing- which happens to be a big sport at our school. The trails wind around the campus as well as take you down to the glistening bay (about a 5 minute jog) and connect to other nature and wildlife reserves bordering the campus. Campus housing is also rapidly expanding. In the past, Green Bay was more of a commuter school, but in the past ten years has become much more of a residency school. New dorm and apartment complexes have been constructed in the last couple years to allow Green Bay to keep up with its ever increasing enrollment numbers. Each dorm room, as well as apartment, has its own bathroom, quite a luxury for a college student, as well as laundry rooms and lounges for students. I also find the Green Bay community as well as my fellow students to be very welcoming and friendly. There is always someone around willing to lend a helping hand, and people across the hall looking to make new friends to enjoy this new college experience with. Everyone is here for the same reasons, to further their education as well as make new friends and embrace new experiences and opportunities, so you might as well enjoy it together!Read More
Its quiet, surrounded by forest and nature preserve, so its quiet and kind of secluded but in no way far from main Green Bay. Its kind of nice not having cars driving outside your window, or police sirens or anything. Its a quiet little place but it has plenty of fun stuff to do. Its also really nice that the school has underground tunnels so you dont have to deal with the Wisconsin winters too much and keep you dry and warm on your way to each building.Read More
