Join in Employee Appreciation Ice Cream Socials next week

All employees are invited to Employee Appreciation Ice Cream Socials on Tuesday, June 11 and Thursday, June 13. This annual event is held to thank employees for their hard work and dedication. On June 11, from 1-2:30 p.m., UW‒Madison leaders will be handing out free Babcock ice cream on Bascom Hill (weather permitting) and as supplies last. Ice cream will be served in cups in two areas of Bascom Hill, including one area with flat or gentle surface slopes for greater accessibility. In case of rain or severe weather, the event will move to Birge Hall. On June 13, from 10 p.m. to midnight, there will be free Babcock ice cream in the Lake Mendota Room at Dejope Residence Hall for second- and third-shift employees. These events are open to all current UW‒Madison faculty, staff, and post-docs. Parking and transportation tips, along with other event details, can be found at
