UWGB Transformed Lindsey by…

…supporting her artistically and academically.

The words “unusual” and “rare” aren’t traditionally associated with an outstanding college education, but Lindsey Przybylski insists that UWGB’s educational opportunities are anything but normal.

As a talented Art major, Lindsey found a valuable artistic outlet in the Lawton Gallery.  “The experiences that the Lawton Gallery has provided have been one in a million. Having the opportunity to exhibit my student work and actually have the university purchase one of my pieces is something I will never forget,” Lindsey says. “These opportunities are extremely rare, and UWGB students are fortunate to have them.”

However, Lindsey says that her artistic success wouldn’t have been possible without her advisors and professors, who provided Lindsey with “the best art education, direction, and resources that simply can’t be found anywhere else.”

“Sarah Detweiler, Alison Gates, Allison Stehlik, Linda Tabers-Kwak, Karen Eckhardt, and Aurora Cortes have been the driving force behind my education and helped my educational dreams come true,” Lindsey explains. “The support, knowledge, and encouragement I have received from these individuals is not normally found at major universities, and UWGB’s students are truly lucky to have these individuals as part of UWGB’s educational team.”

This ideal blend of artistic and academic support has transformed Lindsey into becoming the best educator possible for her future students, an experience not unusual at UWGB.

We’ve asked alumni to either share stories of how their lives were transformed by the UWGB  experience or how they are making the world a better place with transformational work in their careers, homes, or volunteer experiences. As UWGB celebrates its 50th Anniversary, meet an alum each week who has experienced a “UW-Green Bay Transformation.” Stories were self-submitted and then edited by Zachary Taylor, a 2010 English Education graduate currently serving as Interim Associate Director of the Phuture Phoenix program.
