Founders’ Day

You’re invited to gather this spring to celebrate the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

On February 5, 1849, the University of Wisconsin held its first classes. To commemorate this milestone, Wisconsin Alumni Association chapters around the world host special Founders’ Day events that allow Badgers everywhere to reconnect with their fellow alumni and celebrate the university they love.

Be part of this exciting Badger tradition by attending the Founders’ Day celebration in your area.
