From 75 degrees and sunny to 30 degrees and a foot of snow, Badgers have experienced many different St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Madison. UW students typically celebrate this holiday but festivities have changed quite a bit over the years.
While current students may simply celebrate at a friend’s house or a State Street bar, the Engineer’s St. Patrick’s Day parade was once a time-honored spectacle that included the entire campus and provided an forum for campus rivals to poke fun at each other.
St. Patrick, the patron saint of engineers, motivated UW engineering students to adopt and embrace the holiday. From clothing accessories and parade floats to elaborate pranks, the engineering students’ celebration was bold, exciting and included an opportunity to skewer their campus rivals, the law school students.
As their buildings were situated across from each other on Bascom Hill, a natural rivalry brewed between these two groups over the years.
What started out as merely whimsical banter grew to be an intense rivalry, as evidenced by occasional snowball fights and egg throwing. Floats created for the St. Patrick’s Day parade provided an opportunity for both sides to poke fun at the other’s field of study and future profession.
As the rivalry escalated, the engineering and law school deans were called upon to mediate. Like many campus traditions, the St. Patrick’s Day parade ended by the 1940’s, as WWII and the departure of many students disrupted campus activities. Engineering did continue, however, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, just not with an annual parade.
This tradition no longer exists on campus now gone but remnants of the long-time campus rivalry remain. Students still enjoy a good snowball fight on Bascom Hill and, on occasion, law and engineering students engage in good-natured ribbing on campus social media sites.

Here are 100 songs I listened to and liked in February 2014. A little less variety than in previous months, perhaps. Representing a few groups/albums pretty heavily.
