“It is one of my goals as dean to help our students get the protein they need to be successful at UW–Madison,” Berquam says.

Joking aside, the event is designed to help students become more familiar with Berquam and ODOS staff and aware of where various offices are located on campus. Staff members, including new associate deans Kevin Helmkamp and Argyle Wade, will also be available to meet with students and talk about student safety in the downtown area
