Because it offers so many opportunities, UW-Madison helps students discover their dreams, goals and ambitions. It is a school best suited for the inquisitive, energetic and spirited student; adventure awaits every Badger willing to find it. Wisconsin has a wild reputation, and the football aficionado will surely flourish on campus. But the stereotype tells only part of the story; everyone can find camaraderie at Wisconsin. Strolling through campus in the crisp autumn air, admiring the changing leaves and glimmering Lake Mendota, the aspiring author, scientist or environmentalist will sense that deep, peaceful feeling that says, “You’re home.”

Han

People who are very outgoing (extraverted) are encouraged to attend this school because the school culture is encouraging people to have fun during the school year and collaborated with each other for that purpose. However, even if you are not extraverted (meaning, if you're very shy), you should still consider UW-Madison because there are so much opportunities to get involved in so many things such as fencing and other recreational clubs, student government, ethnic clubs and other clubs based on your major / school. You will NEVER have an experience like the "Wisconsin Experience" and find learning exciting.
