Calling all recent alumni from the College of Social Sciences and Professional Studies!  

On Parkside Day, CSSPS Dean Peggy James needs your help!  For 24 hours only, alumni, friends, parents, faculty, staff and students will come together celebration and support to make a collective difference.

Are you a CSSPS graduate from the last decade?   

If 100 CSSPS graduates from the last decade (2010-2020) make a gift to any area of the University on Parkside Day, Dean Peggy James will get a tattoo. (Seriously!)

Follow along on April 15th to track this challenge throughout the day and learn what tattoo Dean James will be getting. 

Make a permanent mark on Dean James and UW-Parkside student success.

Thank you!
