When alumni talk about their experiences as a student in the geography department, they often speak of the fondness they have for Science Hall itself. Once home to all sciences on the UW-Madison campus, Science Hall is steeped in history, mystery and some great traditions that are literally tied to the walls of this grand building.
This year Science Hall reached a milestone — its 125th anniversary!
On October 30th (4-9pm), the Department of Geography and Nelson Institute will hold an anniversary celebration to mark the occasion. There will be tours, talks, and a reception in our beautiful Robinson Map Library. We will take a look back at the building’s past and look forward towards its future.
As part of our anniversary celebration, we are collecting stories and reminiscences about Science Hall. You can leave a comment below or send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
