Crowded hallways. Long café lines. Students and professors meeting face to face. Campus tours for would-be Business Badgers. UW–Madison and WSB were mostly back to normal this fall as in-person learning returned in full along with many traditional campus activities. While these fall scenes would be typical for the start of most academic years, they suddenly feel new again after more than a year apart or in a hybrid learning format because of COVID-19. Even while following the University’s COVID-19 precautions, it has been impossible to mask the joy so many Business Badgers feel about being together again.
It’s an official Homecoming event if Bucky Badger is there. At WSB’s Homecoming Bash, Jason Makowski (MBA ’18) and his daughter, Ella, snag a photo with everybody’s favorite mascot.
Students, faculty, and staff celebrated the return to campus in September with an ice cream social in the Grainger Hall courtyard.
Business students benefit from in-person learning in the Finance and Analytics Lab in Grainger Hall’s Learning Commons this October.
Campus tours for prospective students resumed over the summer. No doubt many soon-to-be Business Badgers got a peek at their future classrooms.
Masked up and ready to go: Classes are back to full capacity levels for the Fall 2021 semester, with masks required for indoor locations on campus.
Alumni and friends of the Hawk Center for Investment Analysis gather for a Hawk Huddle in October. Joining in the celebration are Bill Rogalinski (MBA ’89), left, and Tim Timura (MBA ’85), right, and his daughter, Libby Timura.
