A Wisconsin Alumni Association Varsity 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 WAA: St. Louis Chapter — also known as the Gateway Badgers — is an inclusive community of UW–Madison alumni and friends in the St. Louis bi-state metro area, united by Badger pride and spirit. We foster closer connections with the university, award scholarships to local students attending the UW, provide opportunities to make new connections with alumni, cheer on our Badgers, and celebrate Wisconsin traditions!
