A Weekend to Celebrate

Homecoming 2017 offered WSB alumni ample opportunities to renew connections and make new ones

If any few days could encapsulate what being a Business Badger means, it would be Homecoming 2017. Any time spent hanging out with Bucky Badger and dancing with the University of Wisconsin Marching Band is time well spent, but the connection for alumni goes much deeper than attending the annual WSB Homecoming Bash. The weekend also celebrated the past by honoring the 10-year anniversary of the Wisconsin Naming Gift, and brought together members of various boards, including the Wisconsin Business Alumni Board, to help chart the School’s future.
