On an absolutely gorgeous autumn afternoon, Business Badger alumni came together at Grainger Hall to celebrate in style at the 2022 WSB Homecoming Bash. With sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s—a real treat for late October—guests took to the courtyard to catch up with old friends while enjoying live music, yard games, face-painting, and a special visit from Bucky Badger himself. At the conclusion of the bash, many fans made the short trek to Camp Randall to watch the Badgers take down the Purdue Boilermakers.
