Join us this “Flocktober” 28–29 for a beloved UW tradition! Visit uwflamingos.com to enjoy the feathery fun as you help the university meet its most pressing needs.
In 1979, student pranksters covered Bascom Hill with 1,008 pink plastic flamingos. Now, we celebrate that classic prank with an annual tradition of giving and goofiness. Every gift UW–Madison receives between 5 p.m. CDT on October 28 and 6 p.m. CDT on October 29 will add one flamingo to our fabulous flock — and help the UW stay strong.
Whether you’re in Madison or on the other side of the world, you can join this beloved UW tradition with online flamingo fun!
