WAA’s Forward under 40 Awards honor UW-Madison alumni under the age of 40 who are already making a significant impact on the world by upholding the Wisconsin Idea, the principle that the university community should improve people’s lives beyond the borders of campus.
Alumni Celebrate 165 Years of UW Excellence with Founders’ Day This spring, thousands of University of Wisconsin-Madison alumni will come together in nearly 70 cities across the country at Founders’ Day gatherings hosted by the Wisconsin Alumni Association. Through learning from faculty speakers and camaraderie with fellow alumni, they’ll celebrate the past, present and future of academic excellence at their alma mater. 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.
