Last Friday, we kicked off the new school year with the second annual Welcome Party.

Students who attended were treated to drop-in activities and lots of puppy love. That’s right, our friends from Dogs on Call made their season’s debut at the Welcome Party with 12 furry friends. There were tons of waging tails and smiling faces on every pet lover’s face. Bucky the Badger was even a fan of the dogs!

When people weren’t busy petting an adorable dog or taking a picture with Bucky, with the help of The Flower Factory and Felly’s Flowers, students were able to plant their own succulents and make beautiful flower headbands.  People really let their creativity soar and it was great to see so many people interested in horticulture fun! Guests were also able to kickback and create friendship bracelets and stress balls!

There was some friendly Badger competition as well when people gathered in the English Garden for the Frozen t-shirt contest. The fun didn’t stop there, musical performances throughout the event included the dapper men from the UW a cappella group, Madhatters, and the talented student band, Sophie Fox.

To learn more about our upcoming events and to partake in the fun, visit our Garden Calendar.
