Building on the success of its virtual offerings last year, the Wisconsin Alumni Association is working with a large committee of campus and alumni volunteers to plan both in-person and virtual events during Homecoming week, which begins October 25. At press time, plans called for the return of both the in-person Block Party on Friday evening, Oct. 29, and the in-person Multicultural Homecoming Tailgate and Watch Party on Saturday, Oct. 30.
