What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am going to be a sophomore at UW-Madison this fall. Overall, I really like my campus. My freshman year, I lived in the dorms like many students on campus. The quality of the dorms really depends on which dorm you select. Newer dorms like Leo and Smith are going to be a lot nicer and bigger than the older ones. Some dorms even include A/C and walk in closets. The food on campus is pretty good, but it gets boring after a while. But when you get bored of the dinning hall food, there are tons of places to eat on State st.

I love UW-Madison! Not only does the school offer exceptional academics but also many opportunities outside of academics! I enjoy my classes and have had excellent professors! I am involved in a club and fraternity and have had great experiences so far! I also attend sports events and have fun on the weekends! The school offers a great balance of academics and extracurricular activities!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Class sizes are too big until you reach the graduate level courses and professors' / TA's office hours tend to be at awkward times so it is difficult to see them in person. However, questions posed over emails or discussion boards are addressed very quickly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW-Madison is an amazing university with incredible academic opportunities and great school spirit. Located along the beautiful lake and down the street from the Wisconsin State Capitol, the campus is not only beautiful and serene, but it is in the heart of the state with great events always happening. The professors are doing amazing research in their fields and are very passionate about what they teach. If you attend UW-Madison you will get a great education and have a lot of fun!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the university and it makes me feel very at home. There is something for anyone to take interest in - sports games, art demonstrations, museums, and a plethora of student organizations for one to participate. There is a wide range of class difficulty and there is a class fit for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have no doubt in my mind that the University of Wisconsin-Madison was the right choice for me. I love being a Badger, and I especially love being a music student. While I love the big campus, it's nice that the school of music only has about 250 students. The class size is small and the professors are always very accessible. The campus is absolutely gorgeous and I love that it's integrated with the city as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UW Madison. When I was applying to schools, I considered madison my "back-up" school. However, I visited campus and went to a football game and I never looked back. The campus is gorgeous, the students are genuine and the academics are globally recognized. I wouldn't trade going to Madison for anything. I am beyond happy with my decision.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin-Madison strongly encourages students to interact and find common interests through their creation of multicultural spaces, endless volunteer opportunities within the community, and engaging extracurricular activities that provide students with leadership positions, social awareness, and a much needed break from studying. In addition, Madison's inviting atmosphere makes the University feel safe and comfortable, which gives all of its students a beautiful home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The UW is a great place for students who love to always be doing something, even just studying. There is a 24 hour library Monday-Thursday with select hours on Friday and Saturday which make it convenient when studying. Off-campus housing is also located almost directly on campus, which makes it easy to get to classes without too much commuting. As for drinking, it's also quite easy to not get involved if you choose to not do so. Don't be threatened by any rumors you hear of the school; you don't know what it's like until you get here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best decision I have yet to make was completing my undergraduate degree at UW-Madison. There are endless opportunities for students in all areas of interest. Students at UW take pride in attending an academically challenging institution that offers diverse course offerings and research opportunities. In addition, the gorgeous city of Madison is surrounded by two lakes that students often kayak, paddle board, canoe, or even sail on! (lessons and rentals are available). Once the temperature hits 60 degrees, students flock to the terrace for some Babcock ice cream (made on-campus by dairy science majors), head to picnic point for a bon fire, get a few meals from food carts, or head to the Farmer's Market every Saturday. Badger tailgates for football games are something truly special in this college town! Every student can make their experience unique and find groups that they fit in with. After 4.5 years at UW I still have yet to do everything possible on campus! Best school ever!
