Overall Rating

Overall, I think UW Green Bay is a great school. It is one of the smaller public campuses in Wisconsin, but I personally think that gives it a more personal feel! The atmosphere is really great. I love the fact that nature surrouds the campus, rather than busy city streets. The only thing about that is that to get anywhere off campus, you need to have a car, know someone with a car or use the public transportation system. The residence buildings are one of my favorite parts of this campus. Having your own bathroom in each of the rooms is spectacular! The room size is also a pretty good size. All of the people and staff that I have met on campus are really wonderful and willing to help.
