Badgers take care of one another—it’s what we do. As a Badger, we need to support our peers now more than ever. We want all students to live out their own, unique Wisconsin Experience. It is important to our campus values that we pay attention to the health and safety of all our peers and our friends.
During this pandemic we’ve heard students could be feeling isolated and alone, and it’s important to be present and look out for one another. A reminder that observing any concerning behavior should prompt you to reach out and check on your friend or peer – a quick text or phone call to say: “Hey — Are you okay?” can impact someone’s life in ways you might not know. We recognize it might not always be comfortable to start these difficult conversation however, we have many resources to help with uncomfortable dialogue.
