About this Event

For 50 years, cohorts of smart, hilarious, curious and dedicated University of Wisconsin students have put aside their studies (some more than others) to gather in messy offices with the noble goal of producing a kickass student newspaper called The Badger Herald.

50 years!

Even when the heater didn’t work, the night editor blasted REO Speedwagon (inappropriate in every era), the freshman reporter covering ASM was AWOL, the copy editor smoked menthols, that ad rep lost a $500 check or the van had a flat, the Herald got published.

If you were part of that chaotic, courageous and character-building tradition (the Herald taught me about alliteration), you need to be in Madison on Oct. 4-6, 2019, as we gather to celebrate a half-century of independent student journalism.

A committee of current staffers and alumni are working out the weekend’s details, many of which will be determined by how many tickets we sell. At minimum, there will be an open house at the current office on Friday night followed by an informal gathering at a nearby tavern. Saturday, get your tickets to see the Badgers take on Kent State. Saturday night will feature a catered dinner, speakers and dancing.

It would be very helpful if you could buy a ticket for the price of $100 and add to that a donation that will help keep the Herald humming (and get you a glass and/or t-shirt). That price will go up to $125 on August 1.

Please share this link with your old Herald friends! And let us know if you have any questions or suggestions of interesting speakers and events for the weekend.
