Every spring the Wisconsin Alumni Student Board (WASB), a rambunctious group of 65 undergrads, put on the greatest and longest party of the year: All-Campus Party. I was fortunate enough to become a part of the most recent batch of new members on WASB, and I can tell you right now the hype is well worth it. With a week chock-full of free food, dancing and Wisconsin love, you’ll remember why being a Badger is so awesome.
All-Campus Party kick offs April 20th and keeps the party going till April 27th. Here’s a run down of events you cannot miss out on. Mark your calendars Badgers!
Saturday, April 20 — Bucky’s Urban Odyssey
Think Amazing Race but only cooler. Teams of four will compete hunger games style by completing challenges with a competition spanning across campus. The grand prize? Just four iPads for each and every one of the winners. May the odds ever be in your favor.
Monday, April 22 — Breakfast with Bucky
Monday’s are the worst. Except during ACP. Grab a FREE breakfast at East Campus Mall, Engineering Mall, or Bascom Hill from 7:30-11:00 a.m. Also don’t forget to say hi and pose in pictures with your favorite badger around, Bucky himself.
