Celebrate a Century of Song

WAA introduces second edition of The Red Shirt

UW-Madison alumni, students, and fans can prepare to kick off the fall season in style and celebrate a century of song with The Red Shirt, Second Edition. The shirt is specially designed each year, and the 2009 design celebrates the hundredth anniversary of “On, Wisconsin,” originally composed by William T. Purdy and written by Carl Beck.

In alignment with UW-Madison’s priority to increase financial aid for students in need, a portion of the proceeds from Red Shirt sales will help fund need-based financial aid through the UW Foundation’s Great People Scholarship Campaign, contributing to the more than $550,000 that WAA distributes every year through its scholarship programs.
