Welcome, new Badgers!
Come hang out with fellow students, enjoy free Babcock ice cream on the Memorial Union Terrace, play lawn games, and explore Alumni Park: a great campus space on the lake for you to enjoy. All new students are welcome.
First-come, first-served. Don’t forget to bring your student ID — you’ll need to swipe it to get your ice cream.
Ice cream flavors will include chocolate and vanilla. Not eating dairy? That’s cool, too. Dairy-free vanilla ice cream will be available.
How to Get There
Alumni Park is located on Lake Mendota between Memorial Union and the Red Gym. If you’re taking the bus, hop on the #80 to Memorial Union.
