The first day of classes at the University of Wisconsin took place on February 5, 1849. Be there when Badgers from the Twin Cities area gather to celebrate this milestone. It’s a chance for you to reconnect with other Badgers from your community and to honor the university we all love. Don’t miss this special chance to celebrate with your fellow alumni — because when Badgers gather, it’s sure to be an occasion to remember.

Enjoy a special presentation, “In the Wake of Making a Murderer,” by Carrie Sperling, UW Law School associate dean for experiential learning and education innovation, codirector of the law school’s Wisconsin Innocence Project, and a clinical professor of law.

Presentation of the Badger of the Year Award to John Stanoch ’80.
