Day of the Badger is Tuesday!

Join us on Tuesday (4/9) by making your gift to “Human Ecology” at www.sohe.wisc.edu/dayofthebadger, wear red to celebrate your Badger pride, and stay connected by sharing a favorite memory or two about #SoHE. 

$10,000 is on the line for the School of Human Ecology, and we need your help!  Carol Sapoznik ’69 has set a challenge. If 100 donors make a gift to Human Ecology, we will unlock $10,000 for SoHE!

What is Day of the Badger? It’s a day for Badgers near and far to work together to support the UW and its contributions to the world. It’s what Badgers do!

As a crucial part of the UW, your help is essential to drive widespread participation. There are three ways you can get involved as a university ambassador:

  • Give to Human Ecology.
  • Wear red as a visible statement of Badger pride.
  • Connect with family, friends, other students, and colleagues to share why the UW is important to you and to the world. Feel free to use #dayofthebadger and #SoHE on social media.

Day of the Badger goes from 5 p.m. on April 8 until midnight on April 9. That’s 1848 minutes to show your support and make a difference — a nod to the year of the university’s founding. Set a reminder on your calendar now to make sure you don’t miss it.

On, Wisconsin!
