Day of the Badger is a campus-wide experience that runs for a total of 1848 minutes in honor of the year UW was founded. The Day of the Badger experience will unite Badgers – students, faculty, alumni, friends, and supporters – 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.
