Join our alumni groups – WALSAA (Wisconsin Agricultural and Life Sciences Alumni Association) is a charitable organization that supports CALS through service and fellowship, awards thousands of dollars in scholarships and supports student organizations. The group also sponsors many events and activities throughout the year that offer CALS alumni a chance to connect and work together to support their alma mater. The Wisconsin Alumni Association was founded in 1861 to promote the welfare of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and serve the interests of its alumni. WAA carries out this mission through programs and services that link alumni back to the university and with each other.
