The class of 2026 is about to head to campus — and it’s time to welcome them to the Badger family! Join us at Mandola’s Italian Kitchen at The Triangle as we celebrate the next generation of Badgers and help them feel ready for their first day of college.
This is a great chance for incoming freshmen to have fun while connecting with current UW students, alumni, and fellow new students from their hometown. This event is family friendly and free to attend! New students, don’t forget to pick up your complimentary yard sign as well as other Badger merchandise.
Register by August 14.
