What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautifully set between lakes which is amazing, academics and research are a top priority. There are the negative aspects of constant drinking as it is notorious for being a top drinking school. The class sizes are relatively large for early general courses, but as one gets more major specific they get that more personal connection with the professor and smaller in size.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I had always dreamed of going there as a young child, and I truly felt like it was a dream come true when I got accepted. Even walking through and partaking in the campus I find it hard to believe that I am at such a prestigious university. I adamantly feel like I am getting the best education, and am being provided with a multitude of avenues and opportunities through the university. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everything about the University of Wisconsin-Madison lived up to my expectations and even exceeded them. The academics were challenging and thought provoking and all of the professors that I had came from different backgrounds and had so much knowledge to share. On top of the amazing academics, the student life here lives up to the hype. Game days are the best days of the entire year and there is so much to do on and around campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here and would not trade my experience for anything. I love the large student population because you truly get to choose who you hang out with but have endless opportunities to meet new students. I have found a great community on campus that supports all other aspects of my experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of the greatest schools out there. We are really huge but lots of students make there experiences more close knit because there are so many social organizations to get students interacting with each other and building communities. Additionally we have such a wide range of options in terms of academics and student services.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The place of the badger, we are as ferocious about our sports as we are our academics. Despite our impressive list of notable alumni and outstanding opportunities for research, UW is not necessarily the place for those without an affinity for the sciences. As a double major in English and Art History, my classes are taught by an incredible faculty renown in their field, yet the students are so focused on more "realistic fields," such as those found in Engineering or the Sciences, that these departments are heavily stigmatized as useless. Overall, UW is a great school with incredible opportunities, but which fails to grasp the importance of history and cultural studies in the modern world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW Madison is an incredible school, there is really something for everyone who goes there. "Work Hard, Play Hard" is how I would describe the campus - there is a large party scene, but it's possible to stay out of it. However, everyone is very intelligent and academics are a priority.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Madison, Wisconsin is a beautiful town nestled between two lakes, with a good balance of city life that comes from the southeast community and beautiful nature that comes from the lake-shore community. The people are amazingly friendly and the school is a world-class research institution with many professors also heading ground-breaking research on various topics. Students are extremely driven academically yet that does not take away from the fact that UW-Madison is a top party school with a work hard, play harder mentality. While the school is very large, it is not the most diverse campus in the country which is probably the biggest con.
