A Wisconsin Alumni Association Bascom Chapter

Our purpose is to build an inclusive local community of UW alumni and supporters united by Badger pride, spirit, and the desire to advance UW–Madison’s positive impact on the world.


The Suncoast Chapter serves the Sarasota region, including Manatee, Desoto, Charlotte, and Sarasota counties. The “Badgers on the Beach” chapter is committed to providing a Badger community here for our alumni, families, friends, and other avid Badger fans! We provide scholarship funds to local students planning to attend UW–Madison and foster Badger spirit through volunteering and other social events throughout the year.
