Off the Field with Catie Sessions

Why did you choose the University of Wisconsin? Everything felt right
What does it mean to be a Badger?:
Being a Badger means more than anyone can describe. It's a love for your school, your team, your classmates and it's almost like a religion. If I see someone wearing a Wisconsin shirt I yell "On Wisconsin!" and always get a smile back. Badgers are all across the country and have the upmost pride in where they went to school.
