Second annual Graduate School Degree Dash – Sept. 1

Get your semester off to a fast start! Join fellow graduate students, faculty and staff for the 2nd Annual Degree Dash hosted by the Graduate School at UW-Madison.

Set your goal for 5.7 miles for the Doctoral Derby (no, you don’t have to be in a Ph.D. program to participate), or for 1.75 miles for the Master’s Mile (for those who need to “graduate” early). Race distances are based on average time-to-degree.

The Doctoral Derby will begin at 8 a.m. and the Master’s Mile will begin at 8:30 a.m. Check-in must be completed 15 minutes prior to race start. The start/finish line will be located on Bascom Hill.

You will meet fellow students, faculty and staff, tour campus, come away with a t-shirt or water bottle, and gather information that will help you to start your semester off quickly. And the best part is, whether you come in first or last place, you’ll get a diploma at the finish line.

All are encouraged to participate in this event – new and current graduate students, faculty, staff and family members. Teams are encouraged and eligible to win prizes.
