UW-Madison faculty and staff are invited to gather on Bascom Hill on Monday, May 15 beginning at 1 p.m. for free ice cream.

Ice cream will be served until 2:30 p.m., or until supplies run out, whichever comes first.

All your favorite ice cream flavors will be on hand, including vanilla, chocolate, Badger Blast, chocolate peanut butter and orange custard chocolate chip, to name a few. This year’s featured flavor is “Cherrity,” the flavor that was designed especially for the 2017 Partners In Giving Campaign. Also for the first time this year is the option of a lactose-free vanilla ice cream. Other dietary alternatives will also be available upon request.

Administrators, deans and directors will be scooping as a gesture of thanks for your hard work and dedication this academic year. Plus, members of the UW marching band will be in attendance.

Work units are encouraged to be flexible with employees to allow them to come to Bascom Hill, or are encouraged to host celebrations in their own locations especially for those units located off campus. In the event of rain on May 15, the event will take place in the Birge Hall lobby.
