For Recent Grads

When you graduate from UW–Madison, you become part of an alumni community 446,000 strong. The Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA) is how these alumni come together and stay connected with the university they love.

Top Five Things a Badger Grad Can Do

Congratulations, graduate! Now that you’re a full-fledged Badger, there are some important things you’ll want to do:

1. Use your connections.

Take advantage of WAA’s resources — including Badger Bridge — to make connections, get advice, and advance your career.

2. Start having big Badger fun!

Check out your local WAA chapter for game-watch parties, volunteerism outings, and other events.

3. Update your contact information.

Moving? Let us know so we can tell you about interesting things happening where you live — not where you lived last year. Plus, stay connected to the UW with news and updates from campus.

4. Proudly wear your alumni pin.

It’s like telling the world, “Yeah, that’s right. I’m awesome.” But you’re classy about it.

5. Join the Wisconsin Alumni Association.

Join today to be part of a vibrant and dedicated alumni community. (And to get cool discounts and other benefits!)
