As the 2017-2018 academic year comes to a close, so does a busy year of UW visits.
- Our first visit was on September 8, 2017, at the Allen Centennial Garden as 13 teams greeted approximately 600 visitors.
- The year continued with visits to dorms, libraries, graduate schools, special events, club meetings, Edgewood College, and Madison College.
- Our final visit was held on May 8, 2018, as 12 teams visited outside the Helen C. White Library.
We completed 63 visits with over 45 different teams volunteering their time to help students cope with the rigors of college and life away from home and often their own pet.
I want to thank everyone for encouraging students to relax and smile, to relate their family dog stories, and for helping students to experience “the best day of the year when the dogs come to visit.” This would not be possible without the countless teams that have devoted many volunteer hours to the campus program.
There are already have five visits scheduled for the next school year… “ON WISCONSIN”
