University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Reviews
University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has a wonderful psychology department. The faculty are one of a kind and are fully committed to their students. There are many opportunities within the field such as internships, research assistantships, independent studies, honors projects, and teaching assistantships. There are also two clubs in the psychology department that assist in your development in the field, meeting new people, and getting to know your professors better.
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has shaped me for my future career and my own personal growth. The campus is in a quiet area of town, the east side, so it allows students to focus on their studies. Even though it is in a quiet part of town, there is easy accessibility to the west side which has many restaurants to choose from as well as the bigger of the two malls. There are many activities that the university provides that you can do or there are activities that the nature around campus provides. For example, there are trails through the campus arboratum that people can hike that lead down to Lake Michigan. In terms of school activites, there are nights referred to as "GB Nights" which are nights where the campus puts on games or arts and crafts. The faculty that the university has really strive for exceptional student/professor relationship. Their office hours are wide open and encourage students to come by to talk about school or to talk about life as well. You can tell when you talk to tem that they truly are interested in having you succeed. You are not just a number to them, they look at you as an equal. Finally, the courses that the university offers are great. Personally, within my major of psychology I believe that they offer unique classes like environmental psychology and drugs and behavior. Many other majors have specialty electives that you can take as well that other schools may not even think to offer. Overall, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is one of the most student oriented campuses that I have ever been on. With its many great attributes I am proud that I am an alum who got to experience the beauty of this school.
It had lovely outdoor spaces with lots of green and trees. Most of the buildings were connected through underground tunnels so you did not have to go outside in unfavorable weather. The campus was large but also small enough to make navigating it easy. The professors were interesting and knowledgeable.
It's okay to change your mind on your major and it's okay to change your mind about a university. I transferred my sophomore year and changed my major and it made my college experience so much more fulfilling and fun for me!
