Moving your student to campus is an exciting time, and we want to thank and celebrate your Badger Family. Get into the “back to school” spirit with a guided tour of Alumni Park and open house hosted by the Wisconsin Alumni Association in partnership with the UW-Madison Parent and Family Program.
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. Discover 150 years of UW history, more than 100 influential alumni, campus traditions, and stories of innovation and achievement — all in a 30-minute tour.
You’ll also enjoy just the right amount of Badger spirit — and photo opportunities — thanks to the Bucky statue, Badger Pride Wall, and Progress Point overlook. Stop in at the One Alumni Place visitor center for light refreshments, UW-themed giveaways, and information on the Wisconsin Alumni Association.
Tours meet in the Alumni Park Welcome Plaza near the Fountain, 724 Langdon Street.
