Photo gallery Whopping “W” wakens Wisconsin willpower
It was billed as “The W Project: Bucky’s 5th Quarter.” It became an introduction for about 7,200 first-year students to Wisconsin Badger game-time traditions such as “Jump Around,” under the enthusiastic guidance of the UW Marching Band, Chancellor Jennifer L. Mnookin and other campus leaders.
