UW’s Day of the Badger is April 9

Day of the Badger, an opportunity for Badgers everywhere to unite in celebration of the UW, is April 9! The 1848-minute experience begins on Monday, April 8, at 5 p.m. and concludes on Tuesday, April 9, at midnight. It’s a day (and then some) for all alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends to give, show their pride, and stay connected to the university.

In CALS, all gifts made to the CALS Fund that day will support CALS QuickStart, a program designed to help incoming first-year students get a summer start on coursework, reduce their time to graduation and join a supportive cohort of scholars.

You are invited and encouraged to participate. We hope you will post on your own social media channels using the hashtag #DayoftheBadger and include photos of yourself wearing red or stories about what makes CALS special to you. Visit the Day of the Badger website for FAQs and suggestions for social media posts and the CALS page to read more about QuickStart.
