I came to UW-Madison for its Dairy Science program, but after my first semester I realized that Madison specializes in so many other subjects. All the teachers are extremely dedicated to their teaching and studies. The college is continuously growing and changing for the better.

The athletics are the best! UW is great at sports. Our football team and boys basketball team are the greatest. There is a ton of school spirit here, and we always support our teams. I love the athletic scene!

There are so many public computers and computer labs on campus. At libraries there are usually a lot of computers and printing is relatively cheap. If you even rent laptops from the libraries or dorms for a certain amount of time if you need one for a paper or project.

There are a lot of parking ramps in Madison, so if you don't mind paying for a spot, then finding one is relatively easy. However, finding free street parking is slim to none. You will have to go to one of the streets farther from campus in order to find one of those. Permit costs can get costly too. I know that close to campus they can be around $150 to over $200.

There are many places to eat around campus. The place to go for off campus dining is State's street. The variety is endless and there are some really good places to eat at decent prices.

The campus isn't really strict at all, in any way. Sometimes you will hear about students getting caught in the dorms, but it's not too serious. Definitely if it's your first time, you won't be faced with too harsh of consequences.

From what I've heard, most dorms really don't care about drinking unless they see the bottles of alcohol. As far as being drunk on campus goes, the police only care if you try and fight them or you're falling over/puking in public. The only dorm where they actually enforce the drinking rules is Bradley Hall.
Do. Not. Live. There.

The food tastes good, but I doubt it digests properly.
College Sophomore 2013-04-16T18:34:28Z
The classes are almost always competitive, and the professors are almost all good, except for the math department, where you can't find an English speaking one anywhere.
College Sophomore 2013-04-14T02:09:04Z
There is a decent amount of computers and equipment on campus but they are outdated and slow. The WiFi has been upgraded which has made laptop usage a lot more convenient and internet faster.
College Sophomore 2013-04-14T02:03:03Z
There are a few nice parks, running trails, a bowling alley, and a roller rink to keep people busy. The traffic lights, I feel, are unsafe due to their locations and influence of the speed limit. Parking layouts are also unsafe because you can not see at intersections downtown. There is a decent amount of shopping both downtown and on the outskirts of town like Walmart, Goodwill, JCPenneys, and others.

There isn't much nightlife at this campus because most students are under 21 but the campus does have dances, movie nights, and cookouts to help keep students occupied. There's always something going on here. The transportation isn't great because there are no buses and very few cabs.
College Sophomore 2013-04-14T01:49:53Z
This last winter was horrid and made it hard for the campus to carry on with classes. The dorms are not too far away but it was still not fun to walk to campus. But, when the weather isn't being cruel, there is all sorts of activity on campus.

There are a lot of restaurants near central campus and a good variety of options. I just wish that places were open later, it seems like everything closes too early and I can never find anything besides pizza or asian food to eat at night.
College Senior 2013-04-11T05:52:13Z
There are a lot of places you can find a computer to work on at campus and there are laptops that you can rent if needed. Options can be limited around midterms and finals, but that's expected, especially at such large university.
College Senior 2013-04-11T05:47:12Z
The majority race at UW-Madison is white, with a moderate amount of asian and some african american. However, over the past two years I have noticed the campus has become a little more diverse. Overall though, it is a pretty accepting place no matter your race or sexual orientation, and there are many groups and clubs you could find that fits you.

It depends who you hang out with, but whether you want to do it or not, is really your choice. There is always a sense of peer pressure in college, it will happen anywhere, but it is your choice whether to give in or not. Drinking is by far the most popular choice to partake in.
College Sophomore 2013-03-15T07:47:56Z
Huge variety of food choices on state street, from your typical favorites (chipotle, Qdoba, Noodles, etc.) to the definitely surprisingly great tasting food carts to the little restaurants all over campus.
College Sophomore 2013-03-15T07:44:08Z
Everyone here loves the Badgers! Everyone is always wearing red on game days and spirit never runs short. A vast majority of individuals talk about badger sports and it can always be referenced during classes.
College Sophomore 2013-03-15T07:41:58Z
There are a lot of computers that you can use on campus. There are plenty of libraries, which all contain computers, so you can never be short of not finding an open computer unless you go to a region where it is usually crowed with individuals

If you keep to yourself and hold events in the proper method you really won't be bothered. Of course if your event is overly rowdy and things are getting out of hand cops will eventually show. House fellows (or RAs) generally are pretty relaxed and really only do checks when warranted, like when your extremely rowdy. You can be loud and you can definitely drink, just don't cause a massive scene.

Process was quick and made very easy. I got financial aid that i needed, and whenever i needed refund check they were quick and spot on.

We are known as a party school and there are great bars and parties that go along with this. Everything is easy to walk to if you live right downtown and range from very busy clubs to dive bars that are quieter.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-12T16:36:19Z
Great social scene, amazing views of lake and wooded areas, the campus is beautiful and there is always something to do. The people are extremely friendly and there are a lot of organizations to join, lectures to attend and people to meet.

I worked along side the VP of sales for a telecommunications company in Washington D.C. this past summer and it was the best experience of my life. My internship this past summer gave me the confidence to find more internships, make connections and reach out to potential companies or positions that may be available to me in terms of future jobs. I worked 40-hour works and was payed $10/hour. I also worked on two large sales projects throughout the summer so I maintained a commitment to the company in and out of the office.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
