What the students are saying about:

University of Wisconsin-Madison

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Most students seem enamored of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s undergraduate experience. With about 30,000 undergraduates, the state’s flagship university “has everything you'd want out of a college experience: good academics, strong programs with a diverse number of majors, a beautiful campus, big-time athletics … and an outstanding party scene.” What’s that about the party scene? Did you just say Playboy magazine named Wisconsin the nation’s #1 party school? “Well, the University of Wisconsin is a Big Ten powerhouse, and a top-25 fixture in men’s basketball and football ... and athletics often go hand in hand with partying and alcohol.” This is an area where nearly all students agree. “People party a lot.” “We are a bunch of party animals.” “Good-looking, smart, non-stop partiers.” “Students do know how to party.” The students reference partying again and again, more often than any of Wisconsin-Madison’s other strong attributes. It seems, in the end, Playboy got this one just right.
