What is your overall opinion of this school?

The conscious focus on group work and collaborative exercises that I have experienced while enrolled in the College of Letters and Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has exposed me to many new perspectives and ideas. This has not only made me a more well-rounded and culturally aware individual, but has increased my curiosity and desire to learn outside of my comfort zone. This will be especially helpful as I prepare to enter the world of Communication, where diverse ideas and new perspectives are able to flourish. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is the idea school for students to find their path and develop a sense of self and security.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not have picked a better fit for my college experience! I love it here! I urge people to avoid Greek life here as it is quite toxic. Although it may seem as though everyone parties and drinks every night you will also find the library’s are just as packed as the bars even on the weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of the best schools in the nation (top 50 overall and top 15 public, you really can’t go wrong!). It is a Big Ten school which makes the school spirit absolutely crazy! Badgers are proud of their alma mater and you really do feel like a family, especially on game days. The social life and high school spirit alone create an experience like none other. Madison is also a vibrant, fun-loving city and, like most of Wisconsin, the people are always friendly. I have yet to encounter someone who has not been anything but nice! Although it may seem daunting to some to attend a school of 42,000+ students, you can make Madison as big or as small as you'd like. UW has high academic standards and you will have to put in a lot of work, but that is something that shouldn't be taken for granted because it prepares you and is an indicator of students’ motivation and desire to learn. The professors are easily accessible and are always willing to meet during special office hours as well. I suggest taking advantage of the vast amount of resources that UW provides! There is always someone to help! Especially for freshman, there are college advisors and tutors right in the dorm during most of the day if you need any help! You will never be bored at Madison, there are so many clubs and activities you can participate in, the list goes on and on! It truly is a university for everyone because you can really make it what YOU want! I could not imagine attending any other school. On Wisconsin!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Wisconsin, Madison is a truly great school! It is a little pricey, but what university isn't? The study abroad programs is what really made me choose Madison, and it was so worth it! There is a great on campus culture and pride , along with many other great things to discover on campus both relating to academics and life after school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the campus is beautiful, there are many resources found throughout the campus, so many courses to take, majors offered, clubs to join and lots more. Personally, the class/lecture sizes are big and I thought I would be fine in them but I find myself struggling from time to time and think that a smaller campus would have been more beneficial to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe it has a fantastic environment, and a really great campus culture. While Madison is notorious for being considered a party school, I think that everything is what you make of it. The college offers amazing opportunities for a multitude of different students, and the staff really cater to the needs of those who attend there. Moreover, the community is quite rich in diverse mindsets and beliefs. I respect the assemblage of those who work on and for the campus, especially the students who choose to learn there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW - Madison has a big sports scene that will naturally be accompanied by a large party/bar scene. The weekends are very lively and the bars are usually packed. There is usually something going on from Thursday night and the Fraternity/Sorority involvement is also significant enough to be noticeable just walking around campus. The academics are also great as well, with an emphasis on the STEM field and more. Overall the social scene here is very lively and because of that it is rather easy to make friends if you put yourself out there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As an arts major, not a lot of opportunities available to really develop as a young or inexperienced student. The community seems for exclusive and the requirements to be welcomed are impossible to figure out. Also, not a cohesive enrollment experience, have to fill regular degrees such as sciences or English and most classes do not accommodate your major as a freshman and sophomore standing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A very competitive and high quality academic program with a lot of opportunities for every field and interest. There are great clubs, sports, arts, and forms of entertainment. It is a very big school but is full of smaller communities to make it feel like home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The education is more or less like any other university, but I really like the opportunities given here. I feel as though you can find a lot of connections here in many different fields. Another thing I like is how diverse the community is. There are groups for everything here. One big problem which is also really nice is that it's in the heart of downtown. It's hard to find reasonably priced living spaces here. I'm just glad my parents live close enough for me to commute. Another problem is that I feel the campus and student body are very big.
