Meet Interim Dean of Students Argyle Wade!

Dear Students –

Welcome! One of the most important (and frankly, fun) parts of my job is to welcome (and welcome back) students to campus each semester. It’s tradition. And as you might know, tradition is big here at UW-Madison.

Some of you are new to UW-Madison, either transferring from another university, or new to college life altogether. Many of you are returning students, eager to start the spring semester off right. Regardless of who you are or where you’re from, we are GLAD you are here!

Make the most out of your time on campus and be sure to try something new: Attend Wisconsin Welcome events, ask professors about doing research, consider an alternative spring break, or volunteer! My colleagues at the Division of Student Life offer services and opportunities that are at your fingertips — Take advantage of them!
