Students tell us what they think about True Bader night. Andres Serrano says, “I think that it’s very cool that you can potentially meet your boyfriend or girlfriend.

Rosa Fernandez tells us as well what she thinks, “My boyfriend went to True Badger Night, and he said he got to meet people personally and was able to get closer to them. He was able to meet more friends because of that night.”

True Badger Night is a fun event for the student body to enjoy and meet new people. Though those who participate can claim the title of True Badger, it is more important that students respect each other and learn to get consen
