Founders’ Day

The Founders’ Day season has concluded for 2018. Thanks to all who attended and we look forward to celebrating again in 2019!

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.
