Significant Other Society
Welcome to Madison! We know that you will enjoy your time here. The city is full of life and there are countless activities in and around the city. One in particular is designed just for you! The UW Significant Other Society or S.O.S. is an organization created for resident and fellow spouses/significant others. The group is a great way to meet new people (who come from all over and are in the same position as you), engage in fun activities, and become involved in the UW community.
The biggest event that SOS plans all year is the welcome picnic for residents, spouses and children at one of Madison?s many parks (sometime in early July). At the picnic you will meet other incoming significant others and existing SOS members, learn about SOS activities and clubs, and sign up for those which interest you. In addition to the small clubs/groups, The Significant Other society has the opportunity to help the UWHA with the Children’s Halloween party and to help plan the Winter Ball, an all resident/fellow occasion that has been going for many years now.
*Below is a list of all the current group leaders.
These are the groups that are currently active and a description of each group along with a contact name for that particular group. We are always open to ideas for new groups.
