2013 Forward under 40 Awards Honor Nine Young Alumni Nine exceptional young UW-Madison alumni are honored with the 2013 Forward under 40 awards, presented by the Wisconsin Alumni Association. All recipients are living examples of the Wisconsin Idea, the guiding philosophy upon which this award is based.
“These particular alumni stood out as being extraordinary, even by Badger standards,” said Dale Nitschke, a 1984 graduate and member of the national WAA Board of Directors who served on the award selection committee.
Alumni Park: A Gift to the Heart of UW-Madison MADISON, Wis. — A new promenade and green space called Alumni Park along the shore of Lake Mendota at the east end of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus will soon be a vibrant area where UW students and alumni can enjoy their Wisconsin experience.
Alumni Park is a gift to the campus from the Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) as a finale to the organization’s year-long celebration of its 150th anniversary.
The park will create a promenade that connects UW’s most popular gathering places — the shore of Lake Mendota and Library Mall — in the corridor that runs between the Red Gym and the Memorial Union, from Lake Mendota to Langdon Street.
“This special place — the heart of the UW campus — is the backdrop for so many student and alumni memories that make us Badgers to the soul,” said Paula Bonner MS’78, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Alumni Association.
