Madison- Wisconsin Athletics announced that for the fifth consecutive year, proceeds from the Badger football team’s annual spring game will be directed to a campus partner.
This year, dollars raised through ticket sales will help fund efforts in the UW Office of Undergraduate Advising, which is dedicated to helping students develop a game plan to accomplish their academic and career goals.
“Earning a degree from the University of Wisconsin is meaningful. Students work hard to earn their diplomas,” said Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez.
“Advisors are critically important in that process by helping students understand what they need to do inside and outside the classroom to be successful. We look forward to working with the Office of Undergraduate Advising to promote our Spring Game and through the game’s proceeds, improve the undergraduate advising experience.”
“Like Badger Football, it’s also a new era for undergraduate advising at UW-Madison,” said Director of Undergraduate Advising Wren Singer.
“The stakes are higher now and students need to pair a good academic program with a variety of other experiences. Working with one of our advisors can be a game changer in a student’s life.”
The spring football game is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, at Camp Randall Stadium. It will be televised live by BTN. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 4, for $5 online at UWBadgers.com or by calling 1-800-GO-BADGERS. Tickets can also be purchased in person at the
Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office. The game will be preceded by the annual Badgers Sports Kids’ Fair, which is a free event that starts at 1:30 p.m. in the McClain Center.
