University of Wisconsin–Madison

Move-in Event for Families

Experience the beauty of Madison, learn about UW traditions, and mingle with fellow Badger parents and families at Alumni Park during move-in. Hosted by the Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) in partnership with the Parent and Family Program, we invite your family to join us August 28, 29, and 30 from 1-3 p.m.

Situated on Lake Mendota next to the Memorial Union Terrace, Alumni Park features green spaces and gardens, artful exhibits about alumni and UW, breathtaking views, a visitor center, and more.

This event offers a relaxed opportunity to learn more about the UW. Enjoy a lively, informal talk on “UW Traditions: From Bucky Badger to the Wisconsin Idea” with WAA’s Jeff Wendorf ’82. Then take a guided tour of Alumni Park and its exhibits featuring stories of UW alumni, traditions, and innovations.

The event features light refreshments (cookies and lemonade) and a drawing for the chance to win an Alumni Park gift bag. The tours and talks are approximately 30 minutes each. Stay for the entire event, drop in for part of it, or join midstream.
