Helping college exploration UW-Green Bay Admissions counselors embedded right in the Green Bay Public High Schools have become valued members of the high school community. More local students are choosing to apply to UW-Green Bay and are able to better understand the benefits of a full four-year college experience. “The embedded counselors help hundreds of high school students overcome obstacles that often prevent students from achieving a college degree,” says Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Jen Jones. “These are things like: applications for admission, application fees, transcripts, scholarship applications and financial aid. These coaches have also been introduced to the Phuture Phoenix students who are visiting the University as eighth graders.  It is our hope that as they begin high school, they will find the embedded admissions counselor as an advocate for their entire high school career.”
