Learn more about Homecoming from Rheann Engelke, Homecoming President, Class of 2018:

Last year was an exciting Homecoming week with new events like digital trivia, a mini spirit parade at American Family Children's Hospital, and our first ever Light of the Moon 5k. We are keeping the ball rolling by enhancing previous events and thinking of new possibilities. We have also refocused our mission to make Homecoming week more community-oriented, featuring events where current students, alumni and community members can celebrate UW together. Our relationship with the Children’s Hospital allows us to honor a child as Mini Parade Marshal, and we pay tribute to student achievement by providing six scholarships for outstanding Seniors in the fall. Our 40-person committee is working non-stop in order to pull off creative ideas and accomplish our goal of bringing all of Madison together for this one epic week!

Check out WASB highlights from Kristen Grilli, Past WASB President, Class of 2016: 

The 2015-2016 school year was a thrill for WASB with two successful new All-Campus Party events (the Day of Service and Badgers Chalk the Block), and a team of incredibly dedicated new members. WASB kicked off Spring semester with Founders’ Day on February 5th, where all students and alumni were encouraged to post on social media why they love UW using #UW1849. On Facebook, we increased last year’s 244 reaches to 86,000 this year - unbelievable! WASB was even featured on the local news because of the success! We also continue with favorite campus and alumni engagement events including Dinners On Wisconsin, Madison After Class and the W Project. If you are in Madison, we would love to connect with alumni for our networking events, so please follow us on social media: @gowasb, or email StudentAdvisor@supportuw.org to let us know you're in town!
