Shoe Tree

Each year seniors commemorate their graduation by lofting a warn pair of shoes high into the branches of a campus landmark, the Shoe Tree. The Shoe Tree is a UW-Green Bay tradition. Instagrammers love a chance to capture the creative nature of this important piece of UWGB culture.

Cofrin Arboretum Trail

The Cofrin Memorial Arboretum forms a natural boundary of 290 acres encircling the UW-Green Bay campus. According to the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity, emphasis is placed on the protection, enrichment, and development of native Wisconsin plant communities and areas of special ecological significance. Forests, prairies, ponds, and creeks pose as perfectly Instagrammable locations to showcase one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States.

The Weidner Center for Performing Arts

The Weidner Center has presented an astounding array of performances from Broadway, to chamber orchestras, to pop acts and numerous family events. Sitting in the theatre provides a great experience, but the best view is from stage. UW-Green Bay performing arts students have the opportunity to perfom in this beautiful and acclaimed space.
