One Alumni Place

Imagine arriving on campus: for Homecoming, to drop off a student, or just for a visit, to see how your alma mater has changed. You walk north through Library Mall toward the lake, passing through Alumni Park between the Memorial Union and the Red Gym.

As you stand on the lakeshore, you see your fellow Badgers tying up boats on the Goodspeed Family Pier. To your left, the Union and its Terrace give students their campus living room; to your right, the new One Alumni Place does the same for alumni.

One Alumni Place will be the home for grads as they return to campus: a visitor center with information about what’s going on, a lounge where you can get a cup of coffee and watch the people and boats come and go, a multi-purpose gathering space for alumni events, and a rooftop terrace, where Badgers can come together on crisp evenings.

Connecting with Alumni Park, One Alumni Place will celebrate the achievements of Badger graduates around the globe, through art installations, information stations and commemorations. Join us in making One Alumni Place a reality.
