Badger Buddies Needed for WI Welcome!

Interested in being a Badger Buddy? See the below message from the Center for the First-Year Experience!

This upcoming fall, we’re hitting a milestone as a university, as we welcome our 175th class of new badgers. We can’t wait to introduce them to our campus community and celebrate as they embark on their own, unique, Wisconsin Experience, but to do that, we need help. That’s why, starting this year, the Center for the First-Year Experience and University Housing have partnered to revamp the Badger Buddies program.

Badger Buddies will be enthusiastic campus leaders who welcome new students to UW-Madison this fall by assisting them with the move-in process and joining them at Wisconsin Welcome events. Ideally, we would love to get 250-300+ Badger Buddies who are eager to share their joy and passion for their campus community. With lots of face-to-face interaction with new students, this is a fantastic opportunity to plug your own student organizations or campus leadership roles!

Badger Buddies is a low-commitment, 2-week volunteer position which starts during move-in and ends the first week of classes. All Badger Buddies will be provided free T-shirts, swag items, and an opportunity to win exclusive prizes from campus and local Madison businesses (think giftcards, bluetooth speakers, cameras, airpods, etc)!

Be a Part of Something Bigger by joining the Badger Buddies team to welcome our 175th student class!
