UWSP Residence Halls are open during the day on Saturday for alumni who would like to take a trip down memory lane!  Burroughs Hall was renovated this past summer - be sure to stop by!

Join alumni history buffs at Nelson Hall for a stroll down memory lane.
UWSP's Historic Preservation Committee invites you to take a Homecoming peek at some fascinating bits of campus history. Nelson Hall is listed in the National Register of Historical places and members of the committee are in the process of restoring Nelson's main lounge and refurbishing the foyer of the oldest former dormitory outside of Madison. Get a hint of what's to come with two large display cases full of memorabilia, the John Anderson furniture and the Bessie May Allen wicker set. While you're at it, take a look at the Old Main Founders Room which the committee restored a few years ago. We do good work and we want you to enjoy it, and we invite you to return every year to see what's old!
