Virtual Backgrounds

As a Badger grad, you know that one of the best parts of UW alumnihood is sharing (read: bragging about) your Badger roots far and wide. Now that “far and wide” is confined to the digital sphere, we want to help you deck your tech with full-on Badger Pride!

Want to lead that project meeting from Camp Randall? Meet with your teacher from the Terrace? Now you can video conference in true Badger fashion. Ready to get your U-Rah-Rah on?

Choose your favorite photo below to download video-call backgrounds, social media cover photos, and computer and phone wallpapers!
