Degree Dash! Registration Now Open

Registration is now open for the Graduate School Degree Dash!

Join fellow graduate students, faculty, and staff on Friday, August 30, 2019, for the 4th annual Degree Dash hosted by the Graduate School at UW–Madison.

Set your goal for 5.81 miles for the Doctoral Derby, or for 1.82 miles for the Master’s Mile. Race distances are based on approximate average time to degree. Both routes start and end on Library Mall and follow portions of the Lakeshore Path and nearby streets.

You will meet new people, tour campus, come away with a free giveaway, and gather information that will help you to start your semester off quickly. And the best part is, whether you come in first or last place, you’ll get a diploma at the finish line.

All are encouraged to participate in this free event – new and current graduate students, faculty, staff and family members.
