Ask Abe

Ask Abe, the headlining feature of WAA’s The Flamingle, is your chance to get the answers to the UW–Madison questions you always wanted to ask, but never did. Like, “Why is the Humanities building so hard to navigate?” or “How long has Scanner Dan occupied State Street?” or “Can I really buy beer at the Union without a student ID?” Sure, there were rumors. But Honest Abe will get you the real answers.

Ask Abe: The W

I really love the way students of this era “throw Ws” with their hands to support Wisconsin! But when did this start? It wasn't around when I attended.

North Hall

Ask Abe: North Hall

North Hall was the first building constructed on campus, and South Hall was the second. But before there was a South Hall to oppose North Hall, what was North Hall called? (I've asked tour guides before and can't get an answer!)
