 Students shine for
   UW-Green Bay
Greetings from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay!

One of my roles as chancellor is being an ambassador for this University. It’s something I enjoy and find
relatively easy to do; we have plenty of success stories to share.

There are times, though, when I am reminded I am not this University’s best ambassador. That distinction
rests instead with our students and graduates.

The ninth annual Academic Excellence Symposium illustrates this perfectly. It was an absolute delight to
browse the exhibits, chat with some of our top students and see the high level of academic achievement in
their research projects, independent studies and artistic achievements. I took great pride in seeing these
students so confidently display their work to campus and community visitors.

Another proud moment came not here, but in Ames, Iowa, with the UW-Green Bay women’s basketball
team in the NCAA Tournament. The Phoenix came within an eyelash of the Sweet 16. As important, the
players and coaches, pep band, cheer squad and fans represented us with spirit and class, winning admira-
tion for their sportsmanship. We’re still fielding compliments directed their way.

Among the best stories told during “March Madness” was one away from the court, regarding Phoenix
guard Celeste Hoewisch and her ongoing work with special fan Zach Heugel of Green Bay (photo below).
Celeste was a star of her team’s upset win over Virginia. If you saw coverage on TV or on our website,
however, you know her greatest contributions will have more to do with her studies in biology and exercise
science, and her absolute commitment to helping others.

One other story you might have seen involved “green” ink in Green Bay. When our Computing and
Information Technology division announced a move to a less ink-intensive font as our default typeface, it
became national news. The attention was timely as we approach the 40th anniversary of the first Earth
Day, and alumni return for a major conference celebrating the occasion.

It has been a great spring for your University. Thank you for your continuing interest,
and Go Phoenix!

    In 1970, new campus
    meant new life
    Forty years old, a stay-at-home mother and
    suddenly widowed with four children ages 4
    through 16, Kathryn VerKuilen surveyed her
    Something happening across town, on Green
    Bay’s east side, caught her eye.
    It was early 1968 and ground had been bro-
    ken on a new four-year university. At the time,
    the Green Bay Center on Deckner Avenue
    offered only freshman/sophomore-level classes
    as a feeder to the main University of Wiscon-
    sin campus in Madison, 140 miles away.
    The placebound VerKuilen had never been
    much interested in the Center. Having started
    school in Madison before starting a family, she
    already had two years of college. When she
    looked to the construction on Nicolet Drive,
    though, she saw a future.
    “I had to do something, I had to find a job,”
    she says now. “I had volunteered a lot at Jack-
    son School where my kids went to school and I
    thought, I’ll go back and finish my degree and
    become a teacher. Plus, I’d be off when the
    children were off.”

                                                      VerKuilen enrolled as one of UWGB’s first stu-      who grew up on a South Dakota reservation

                                                                                                          “That first year it was a small school and the

                                                      recalls. “The younger kids were all very nice...    says. “In my anthropology class, we thought it

    first graduates remember about student
    life that first year at the new University.
    Harold Baker ’70 says his student job was
    as a bartender. It was an era when it was
    legal for 18-year-olds to consume beer.
    Baker worked the bar at Shorewood, which
    was the old clubhouse of the former private
    golf course on the site.
    “Shorewood hosted dances, some bands
    and the like,” says Baker. “My main memory
    was the day (Dec. 1, 1969) when we
    watched the very first military draft lottery
    on TV at the club. There were cheers, and
    probably tears, as each birth date was
    drawn from the tub and was assigned the
    next priority number to be drafted.”
    Keith Pamperin ’70 says Shorewood “really
    was the place to meet and greet after
    class and school functions, serving as our
    student union.”
    Baker, who went on to a 30-year career
    with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans after
    receiving his Managerial Systems degree,

    First across the stage: Memories of June 1,1970
    Most of today’s graduates began their studies in the
    Center System. When it became definitely known
    about two years ago that UWGB was to open offi-
    cially in September 1969, they were moved by their
    interest and pride in the new institution to seek
    to become its first graduates. Today’s ceremony,
    then, is a tribute to their pioneering spirit and

    Forty years ago this spring, on the first
    Monday of June 1970, 78 “pioneers” received
    the first degrees awarded by the University of
    Wisconsin-Green Bay.
    The event capped UW-Green Bay’s inaugural
    year at its bayshore location and second since
    upper-level courses debuted at the former
    freshman/sophomore Deckner campus.
    Scheduled for the plaza above the Instruc-
    tional Services Building, the ceremony was
    moved by iffy weather to the gym at Deckner a
    few miles away.
    Gary Kuchenbecker ’70 remembers walking
    down the aisle to shake hands with Chancellor
    Edward Weidner and Gov. Warren Knowles,
    who just five years earlier had signed the
    legislation that would create UWGB. Knowles
    would deliver a speech lauding the institution

    ‘A sea of oozing slime’ at
    birth of campus housing
    Forty years ago this summer, construction of the Bay
    Apartment complex put nine two-story buildings with
    the capacity to house nearly 600 students right next
    door to the new UW-Green Bay. And a prolonged rainy
    spell put the first tenants ankle-deep in mud.
    “It was just a sea of oozing slime out there. No landscap-
    ing, just mud and straw,” recalled Class of ’71 grad David
    Kohn, who moved into one of the units in August 1970
    and snapped these photos. “Construction wasn’t even
    complete on many of the units, and I had to sleep on the
    floor of someone else’s place until mine was finished.”
    “The Bay Apts” began as a commercial operation man-
    aged by Inland Steel Development Corp. Their devel-
    oper, David Carley, an anti-war candidate for Wisconsin
    governor, was a public figure in those days; in March
    1971 students celebrated the opening of a coffeehouse
    in the Building 107 basement by naming it Carley’s
    Place in their then-landlord’s honor.
    By 1980 the apartments were purchased on behalf of
    the University, providing the core for new residence hall
    and apartment-suites buildings and today’s Residence
    Life complex of nearly 2,100 beds.
    Worth noting: The yellow school bus in the 1970 photo
    was most likely the “Deckner Shuttle,” which trans-
    ported students between the new Shorewood site and
    the downtown UW Center campus on Deckner Avenue,
    where many classes still were held.

         “I ended up being good friends with
         founding chancellor Ed Weidner.
         He was just brilliant.”

Endowment gives life to library
A new endowment will provide needed financial assistance to
the heart of UW-Green Bay — the David A. Cofrin Library.

Strategically located at the heart of the
University, the Cofrin Library was established
as the lifeblood of learning on the UW-Green        Dr. Debra

Bay campus. Now, an endowment created by            Ann Reilly

Dr. Debra Ann Reilly, sister of UW-Green Bay
Prof. Clif Ganyard, and his wife, Cofrin Library
Director Paula Ganyard, will help secure its
viability for years to come.

                        ‘Bay Badgers,’ anyone?
                        Exactly forty years ago, UWGB students chose the fiery Phoenix (inset)
                        as the new school’s permanent mascot. Sent to the ash can were the Bay
                        Badgers nickname and the weird, water-skiing Bucky logo, which survives
                        in the UW-Green Bay archives only as a single, felt pennant. Is there any
                        pre-Phoenix memorabilia in your attic? We’d love to see it. See page 13.
