More than a thousand students gather in the stands and learn traditional “fifth quarter” songs before flowing onto the football field at Camp Randall Stadium at the University of Wisconsin–Madison to form the shape of the letter “W” as part of the W Project on Sept. 4, 2014. The event — organized by the Wisconsin Alumni Student Board (WASB) with the help of the Athletic Department, Center for First-Year Experience and the UW Marching Band, was part of a series of Wisconsin Welcome orientation and new student programs held at the beginning of the fall semester.
