One thought on “Signing Day

  1. Christopher Sampson Post author

    Also worth noting: Some have asked why UWGB chose the date enabling legislation was signed as our founding date? 1) It’s customary across higher education; 2) It’s the date that sets in motion a lot of hiring that defines a university (administrators, faculty and staff); and 3) In UWGB’s case, the first day of class is a little murky. The freshman-sophomore center in Green Bay was already operating in 1965, with students in the pipeline for fall 1968 when we first started offering junior-senior courses at the old Deckner facility, in advance of the 1969-70 opening of the new campus on the bayshore site.
