When you first arrive on campus, you’re going to be overwhelmed with information. Fliers asking you to join student organizations, coupons for fast food joints, so many words shouting what to do and where to go. But there’s one place you make sense of it all and learn the ins and outs of campus in order to make it your home — The Daily Cardinal.
Whether you want to learn more about where your tuition dollars go, the stats of your favorite Badgers team or the latest updates in scientific research happening right on campus, it’s all in our pages, on our website and social media accounts.
We’ve published the need-to-know content about Wisconsin, Madison and the university for 127 years, so rest assured we’ll always be here for you. You’ll find Cardinal staffers from all around the world are there for you, too, if you get involved with us.
That’s one way to adjust to our massive campus and its abundant opportunities — find your niche. The world will feel smaller when you have a hub to escape to with people who share your passions. Find a student organization that you can call home, whether it’s an intramural sports team, a debate club or The Cardinal, just as many decades of Cardinals have before you.
Maybe you want to take photos and create page layouts, or write about state politics but also sell ads. You’ll be able to try it all, even things you may have never considered trying, within the walls of our 2142 Vilas Hall office; we can help you find what you love to do.
Five nights a week, we create the content you — the people who make up our community — need to have, and we’d love for you to be a part of sharing the truth with your fellow Badgers.
Regardless of wherever you find your flock, we hope you’ll turn to us as a resource throughout your time here at UW-Madison, and that you’ll engage with us and other Badgers around you. Welcome to campus, and welcome home.
