Celebrating by the Light of the Moon

An anniversary gala highlights the UW’s impact.

It was a 175th birthday party for the ages. In October, the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association led the planning and execution of a festive gala on behalf of the UW–Madison chancellor’s office and the campus 175th Anniversary Planning Committee. The event was called By the Light of the Moon: 175 Luminous Years of the University of Wisconsin.

Below are some photos of the once-in-every-175-years event, which drew nearly 500 attendees for an elegant evening in the Discovery Building that included Wisconsin foods and beverages, a university timeline, a “secret” bar, and lots of Badger spirit.
