Building a Ciiporoke: A Teejop Experience

Come build community around a ciiporoke! A Ho-Chunk dwelling, the ciiporoke has been a place of home, family, community, teaching, learning, and ceremony for Ho-Chunk people at Teejop since beyond memory. Together, we can think about placemaking and explore how UW–Madison spaces can be transformed into Indigenous places. All are welcome today, November 3, on the Dejope north lawn.

Return & Reuse Name Tags

Did you know the Housing Sign Shop is able to reuse old name tags and desk plates? When student or career staff members leave, you can send these back to the Sign Shop to be reused. It's sustainable, and it helps get name tags out to new staff faster!
