Meet Breon!

Every few weeks we feature a different CAVR employee and ask them what they love about woking here! If you would like to view the pervious guide spotlights please click HERE.

“I love CAVR because of the opportunity it’s given me to connect with so many like-minded individuals on campus. It’s honestly contributed so much to me feeling welcome on campus, and makes this large school seem significantly smaller. CAVR has made me feel as if there’s a place for me on campus, and I’m so grateful for the opportunities it’s given me!”

We employ enthusiastic and friendly student staff who proudly represent UW-Madison. They lead tours and provide information for prospective students and families, visitors of all ages, and the campus community.

Campus and Visitor Relations is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We strongly encourage applications from individuals who possess and promote these values. Work study students are preferred.

Be an Information Guide

Information Guides assist students, faculty and staff, prospective students, visitors, and members of the community with information about the campus and surrounding areas. They provide services in person, by phone, and through Ask Bucky email and chat from four locations (Union South, Memorial Union, Discovery Town Center, and One Alumni Place).

Be a Tour Guide

Tour Guides educate visitors about academics and campus life, as well as the history, traditions, and achievements of the university. They serve the university by leading prospective and admitted student tours, customized campus tours for school groups, alumni, and distinguished guests, and facility tours for Discovery and the Wisconsin Union.
