Virtual Backgrounds

As a Badger grad, you know that one of the best parts of UW alumnihood is sharing (read: bragging about) your Badger roots far and wide. Now that “far and wide” is confined to the digital sphere, we want to help you deck your tech with full-on Badger Pride!

The more the merrier! Don’t keep the fun all to yourself — help us spread the word by sharing this page with your social network.
