It is difficult to find your place in UW-Madison, it is very enthusiastic about sports and academics, and there are a lot of research projects in which to become involved.
I suggest choosing a college that has the right programs for you. It is a good idea to have a backup plan in the event that your first choice of school or major do not work out. Take classes that satisfy prerequisites for multiple majors of interest. Take full advantage of financial aid. Do not be afraid to seek help with anything, because chances are that there is someone on campus who specializes in what you need help with. If you want to get involved, do it at the beginning of the year so you know what is going on. Keep partying to a minimum, and do not take more classes than you can handle. If you have a learning or psychological disability, seek accomodations before the semester starts. If you have an anxiety problem, for example, a little extra time on tests can make or break your grade. Don't be a toughie! Get help right away if you need it!
There are so many people, it is difficult to get into classes, and some classes are more difficult than the amount of credit received.

When choosing a school, it is important to consider what type of school would benefit you personally, rather than which your friends are going to or your parents went to. If you come from a small town and have trouble adjusting to change, it will be best to choose a smaller school because schools such as Madison with quite large campuses tend to be more difficult to make friends at since people live so far apart from each other and especially in the winter, the motivation to see each other is lacking. Also, if you do not learn well without a fair amount of one on one teacher attention, choose a smaller school, since lectures at schools like Madison tend to have lectures with 100-300 people at once. If you do not enjoy drinking, be sure to investigate what types of extra curricular activities the campus offers. Overall, college is not only about educating yourself, but about discovering your adult identity, so it is essential to choose a school that offers not only classes, but also extra-curricular activities that will suite you. A sense of belonging to the campus family leads to comfort and in turn, success.
It is difficult to get into the classes you need and you never know if your professors and TAs will be excellent or horrible teachers! Also, there are a lot of cliques on campus and it is very large making it hard to make friends.

This is a big school, so there's a huge variation in the types of people you'll find in your classes. The more your class is related to your major, though, the better the chance you'll have of finding people with similar interests.
College is a unique process for each person. Choosing the one that most fits you seems like a daunting task, but it's really just a matter of prioritizing and then testing the waters. Remember that no one university holds the power to transform you into the perfect applicant for your dream job, or give you classic memories. Look at your possible colleges. Weigh their benefits and disadvantages- programs, cost, location, campus climate- and then visit. Get a tour, talk to students and staff, and find the campus's pulse. This is the most important step. Attending the school that looks best on paper will do you no good if you're wishing you could drop out by winter break. Once you're on campus, your experiance can be summed up in these simple words: "You get out what you put in." College is a invigorating blend of learning and adventure that you may never come accross again in your life. But you can't wait around for college to happen TO you. Embrace the experiances your college offers. Don't forget though: "Moderation in all things." If you balance your studies and fun, college will be everything you hope.

I feel that the worst thing about UW was the student governement. While not an important issue to many people, I was consistently unimpressed with their lack of actions and results on issues that students were very passionate about. Had there been no student government, I feel that most things would have been the same. I expect a student governement to make positive changes for those enrolled, not be happy simply having a role.
After having graduated with an undergraduate degree, I feel that I have a very well-rounded idea of the most important things one must look for when choosing a college. There are many important issues that students face that must not be overlooked. Here are my words of advice for students looking to make the most out of their college experience. 1. Is the college you're choosing going to be financially within your reach? Be sure that you're choosing a college because of its merit, not because it is private or "everyone is going there." Student loan debt becomes very real post-graduation, and jobs may be hard to come by. 2. What are your main interests? Choose a school that accommodates the values you most appreciate. While college is about growth, it also is about learning who you really are. If you love people and sports, a large State school is a great fit. If you love small classes and tight-knit communitites, look at smaller schools. 3. Go to class!!! You're paying a lot of money for a degree that will hopefully make you more. Don't waste your time and money in the process.
College at the University of Wisconsin was a great chance to not only get a great, reasonably affordable education, but it also has an enormous amount of opportunities to network and meet new friends while taking part in a number of opportunities and social events. I can say with near 100% certainty that when you dream of a college experience, it is very much like what happens at UW. Great academics, plenty of organizations, fantastic athletics, in a great college atmosphere. On Wisconsin!

Overall, my classmates are very focused on their work when they need to be, and very curious and passionate whether or not they have massive work loads.
Basically, it's difficult. You can never know for sure whether you're making the right decision until you take that first step. But because of that, and in light of my experiences at UW-Madison, you cannot to be scared of making mistakes. As time goes on you realize that everyone makes the same embarrasing mistakes as you will, or perhaps already have, so there is nothing to be afraid of in the first place. Many incoming students expend alot of energy stressing about grades, but it is not the letter that defines you, it's how much you've learned while here - and social experiences are part of that learning experience. The more you relax the more you realize that having fun with your friends, both in and out of class, is where the true learning takes place. No matter where you go or what you do, you will always find shoulders to lean on, some even for life, so don't be afraid of taking that leap of faith, don't put too much emphasis on money, and most importantly, follow your heart - do that and you've already accomplished more than the average college junior.
The lakeshore dorms are handsdown the best part of campus. The attitude is very laid back, and helps alot to relieve the stress of finals and college life in general. Everyone who lives there is very close and non-judgmental, yet smart enough to hold enthralling philosophical conversations and be very passionate about campus sports.

I wish I had more time to look over all of the classes they have to offer. There are so many classes to choose from, and it's hard to decide what you want to take from such a huge list. I also wish I knew about all of the events right away. There is so much going on in this city, it's hard to do everything you want to do and attend school.
College is a very important time in anyone's life. Both parents and students need to be involved in this educational experience and it must not be taken too lightly. It is an extremely fun time for students, but it is important to stay focused on schoolwork. In order to maintain on track, students and parents need to work on choosing a major that works for the student so that he or she can graduate on time. It is important for students to get involved in social events in order to make friends on campus. Parents need to be supportive especially when times are tough for the student. College can be the best time of your life if you do well and get involved.
What I brag about most about his school is the acedemics and the social atmosphere. There is a lot to do around the campus, and there are so many things to get involved with. It is a really great school, and I've had the best time of my life attending this school. I know that I'm getting a good education here, and I don't have any doubt that I will get a great career from attending University of Wisconsin- Madison.

In searching for the right school, make sure to visit many. It's impossible to tell how well you like a school based on the promotional materials they send you. Once you're at school, be as involved as possible. By making new friends, trying new things and expanding your mind, you'll learn more about yourself and life than you will about your major! Don't forget to study though.
It's large enough that there are tons of opportunities both academically and culturally, but small enough that it's easy to find the right place for you to feel at home.
Since it's in a downtown area, there are few grocery stores/department stores/movie theaters on campus.

The most unique aspect about my school compared to others was that they were willing to provide me with a full tuition scholarship based on my ethnicity and academic success combined.
No matter how expensive tuition may be, please go to the college you want to be at and be a part of. There is always financial aide and private loans available to pick up the costs. Take advantage of it all. Sign up for everything and go to the first meeting, that's how you find your interests, and don't stick to anything that doesn't interest you, that will only waste your time. Remember, work hard, play hard, that's the motto of the University of Wisconsin, ranked number17 in the world!
The most frustrating thing about my school is that being a conservative in one of the most liberal universities is unacceptable to a people who believe in an acceptance of all people, when that is not the case here on campus.
Fun and exciting

Take your time, visit all the schools you can, talk to as many student at the schools as you can. Be yourself and honest to yourself in the process and you'll find the right place. Don't focus on the negatives that get pushed about drinking cultures, drugs, etc, it's your life and you can always stay away from those scenes if you choose. Pick the school that you feel most comfortable at.
