What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
UWGB is perfect for anyone who wants to find a fun community with interesting classes.
Alexa from Niagara, WI
University of Wisconsin- Green Bay is a college filled with opportunities that never stop growing! It is a top notch school that will make your dreams come true. This school is small, but with a wide range of EVERYTHING!
Erin from Lakewood, WI
The campus is very well taken care of. There is a lot to do as long as you actually get OUT OF YOUR ROOM to do something (I am an event planner on campus, trust me.) Finally, the tuition is cheap and you are getting a lot for what you pay.
Alexander from Green Bay, WI
UWGB offers everything you might need, including a beautiful campus, state-of-the-art fitness center with a rock climbing wall and personal trainers, and faculty who are genuinely interested in helping you succeed.
Erika from Green Bay, WI
UWGB offers a one-of-a-kind college experience, from smaller class-size experiences to private bathrooms in the residence halls and even the joy of enjoying nature right on campus. I personally have been able to accomplish so much as student here, that maybe I wouldn't have had the chance to do at bigger universities.
Sarah from Denmark, WI
UW-Green Bay is a great university for academic and social purposes. With the addition of tunnels, the school creates a family atmosphere, and makes students feel at home. The people you meet here will definitely help encourage you and will make an impact that you will remember for the rest of your life!
