What is Day of the Badger?
Day of the Badger is an 1848-minute experience that begins on Tuesday, April 7th, at 10:12am CT and concludes on Wednesday, April 8th, at 5:00pm CT. It’s a day (and then some) for all alumni, students, and friends throughout Badger nation to give to their passion, show their pride, and stay connected to the university. Everyone who loves UW–Madison is welcome and encouraged to participate. The goal is to unite Badgers in an effort to advance the mission of the university by bringing awareness to its achievements and raising critical funds to help the UW remain a world-class educational institution.
