“IF YOU WANT TO BE A BADGER”

Written in 1919 by faculty of the School of Music, “If You Want to be a Badger” is played at the end of every pregame show. In the stands, when the band plays the song, the crowd reaches out their right hands, palms facing up “If you Want to be a Badger…” then they draw their arms towards themselves, beckoning you over to them “Come Along with Me!”
