Get into the back-to-school spirit with a guided tour of Alumni Park and an open house hosted by the Wisconsin Alumni Association® in partnership with the UW–Madison Parent and Family Program. Discover 150 years of UW history, more than 100 influential alumni, campus traditions, and stories of innovation and achievement — all in this 30-minute tour. Walk among artful exhibits and learn how the UW impacts the world. You’ll also enjoy just the right amount of Badger spirit — and photo ops — thanks to the Bucky statue, Badger Pride Wall, and Progress Point overlook. Stop in at the One Alumni Place visitor center between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. for light refreshments, UW-themed giveaways, and information on the Wisconsin Alumni Association. Wisconsin Alumni Association members can also enjoy Member Friday pontoon boat rides (see link for schedule and sign-up details).
