Dear Friends, Colleagues and Community,
It's that time of year again, when fall is upon us and the leaves start to change and the excitement of campus in full mode takes over. We're inviting you to share that excitement by coming back to campus to reconnect for our Multicultural Homecoming Reunion Celebration on  October 19 and 20.   Please RSVP today for an array of events. 

The DDEEA is hosting a major event of the weekend with Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison, our premiere sponsor. "ReUnite: The ReUnion Experience" homecoming concert was curated specifically for UW-Madison's multicultural homecoming audience to bring a soulful cabaret of live performances by talent from across the nation along with an outstanding showcase of campus and local talent.   Read more about Multicultural Homecoming events...
