About the Program

Enjoy a special presentation:

UW Traditions

Featuring:

Jeff Wendorf ’82, vice president of development at the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association

UW traditions have united Badgers for generations. But where did these traditions come from? What is the bacon trophy, and when did we start to jump around at Camp Randall? How were campus traditions affected by turbulent times in the past? We discuss what makes traditions enduring and which ones have become guiding principles for our university.

Dinner will be a plated meal featuring your choice of prime rib, pasta primavera, or grilled salmon. A cash bar will be available.

Cost

  • $35 per person
