The Packers have held their summer training camp on the St. Norbert College campus since 1957. This is the longest-standing training camp relationship between a pro football team and a college in the NFL. Last spring, the Green Bay Packers and St. Norbert co-sponsored the national academic conference, “A Mirror of Our Culture: Sport and Society in America.” This first-of-its-kind partnership was held at St. Norbert and Lambeau Field. The St. Norbert College cheerleaders head to Lambeau Field for each home game to cheer on the Pack. They've been pumping up the Packers faithful since 1997.

Graduating to the big leagues
Kevin Quinn is a leading sports economist and St. Norbert faculty member, whose work on issues like the economic impact of the Super Bowl often utilizes the Packers as a case study. (For more on Quinn's work read "Finding $50 bills in the NFL draft.")
Recognizing that those who excel on the field often excel off of it, St. Norbert awarded honorary degrees to Packers great Bart Starr and his wife Cherry in 2010 for their community service. More than one St. Norbert graduate has gone on to work for the Packers. Current alums with the team include Kate (Kelly) Hogan '84, their director of retail operations, Lisa (Berg) Treichel '93, Jen Rosin '08 and Theresa Pagel '04. And believe it or not, one St. Norbert grad, Larry Krause '70, actually played for the Packers! (Read more about Hogan in "Scoring BIG" from the St. Norbert College Magazine.)
