PANTHERFEST welcomes back thousands to UWM

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s biggest event of the year, PANTHERFEST, returned to the Summerfest grounds, where co-headliners B.o.B and J. Cole lit up the stage that electrified a crowd of 13,399.

PANTHERFEST was the culminating event of Fall Welcome 2012, featuring over 100 events for new and returning students.

Did we spot you in the PANTHERFEST crowd, on a boat tour, or ice-skating or pedal-carting on Spaights? Or maybe we snapped your pic while you were Panther tailgating or hanging out at a luau-inspired feast?

Check out our photos and video to see why this is the party of the year!
