Event Information

Badger Bound

Badger Bound is a full-day program on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus for low income, first generation, and/or students of color who are seniors interested in attending UW-Madison. We’ll show you why our university is not only a place where you’ll receive a world-class education, but a home where you can discover new interests, develop your talents, and find a community of support while you pursue your academic and extracurricular passions.

The event will include breakout sessions where you’ll learn about undergraduate research opportunities, find out what it’s like to attend a lecture as a student on our campus, hear from current UW students about their unique Wisconsin Experiences, and learn how to transition to life at UW-Madison. You’ll explore our campus on a tour that will highlight multicultural spaces and opportunities. We’ll explain how to navigate the application process and share everything you’ll need to know about financial aid. The day will conclude with a resource fair where you can connect with numerous campus offices and multicultural student organizations.
