University of Wisconsin-Madison Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at University of Wisconsin-Madison?


UW-Madison is definitely stereotyped as a party school. Everyone assumes that when you come to Madison the kegs are overflowing into the streets and that people are throwing raging parties every time you turn around. We definitely find our reasons to celebrate on this campus, but drinking is not the only activity that students here engage in on the weekends. We also have a reputation for being relatively outspoken. The school's history is very politically-charged. The Humanities building was even built according to special conditions specifically so that it would be riot-proof. The university was founded the same year that Wisconsin became a state so there is a long history of students on this campus.It's not irregular to see protesting going on on campus. Politically, the belief is that we're all liberals, and while that is not entirely true, the majority of students to tend to lean to the left on most political issues.
