We challenge you to get in touch with FIVE of your lasting UW Geography connections to spread the word about Day of the Badger and ask them to reach out to FIVE more. Help us start a chain reaction of community building and support around this year’s event. Let’s put Geography prominently on the DOTB map – and on the campus leader-board!

Day of the Badger begins Tuesday, April 5, at 10:12 a.m. CDT and concludes on Wednesday, April 6, at 5 p.m. CDT (a total of 1848 minutes … a nod to the year the university was founded). The Department of Geography will be actively participating in this year’s event, and we hope to see and hear from our students, alumni and friends from far and wide!

It’s a chance to give to a passion, show UW spirit, and connect with the Badger community. 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 celebrating its achievements and raising critical funds to help the UW remain a world-class educational institution.

On, Wisconsin!
