I love the dining halls, especially the new Gordon Commons. They all have a wide variety of foods and are conveniently spaced throughout campus, so that there is always one near by.

Madison offers an abundant number of majors, its actually quite ridiculous how many options you have. The best part of all of the majors offered is that when you declare a Major you know you are going to get some of the world's finest education about your major, and you will be learning from top professors with incredible stories and experiences! As for me, I declared a Genetics major, of which is a major offered by very few schools in the US, but due to my career path I decided to drop this major, unfortunately. Therefore, I am currently undecided, choosing between Biology and Political Science. It wasn't until I took in International Relations course at UWM that I realized how fascinated I was in this area, but now after taking more poll sci classes taught by incredibly intelligent professors with such amazing experiences, I am seriously considering this major. On the other hand, Biology, is also taught by incredible professors with state of the art scientific labs and tools at your fingertips! Its too hard to choose!

Guys & Girls:
Madison has a beautiful range of people, which is one of my favorite parts of Madison. There are 'coasties', of whom can be annoying at times, and there are hipsters, and nerds, and artsy folk, some jocks, fashionistas, and just your everyday suburban people. Not everyone is nice or kind or funny but I have met quite a few people from different parts of the world, with different interests that have taught me a thing or two. The diversity at Madison is outstanding and really adds to our World Class campus!

Madison has a high reputation for being a top university that provides a quality education. All teachers emphasize and make note of academic integrity, and in many of my classes I have seen professors take action for cheating and other things that go against the academic code. On a social note, it is possible to go out and have fun without having to worry too much about getting in trouble, however I feel like there may not be enough strictness when it comes to larger parties.

There are not very many opportunities from the actual university for scholarships.

The actual dining halls on campus are quite nice, and provided the opportunity for student employment. Two dining halls are open almost 24/7 with one only open during the week. Although the hours may not be the best, the food makes up for it. One more thing, Babcock ice cream is the best ice-cream that you can ever imagine.

Guys & Girls:
Madison has been rated as one of the most attractive campuses in the country, and it's not hard to see why. There are so many beautiful ladies, it's mind boggling. The campus is also very diverse in interests and social life, but everyone tends to enjoy a good party. That said, it's not hard to find kids that just like to hang out. Overall, the student population is wonderful, and you will feel like you belong no matter what.

I have lived in Wisconsin my whole life so the winters don't bother me. The other three seasons of the year are very beautiful as the campus is along a beautiful lake. Winters can be a bit chilling and snowy, though.

Though there are many races, ethnicities, and religions on campus, they are not highlighted or celebrated. Being part of a biracial couple, I have experienced very few issues on campus. However, outside of campus, people are less accepting.

Campus can be strict. For Halloween, no outsiders are allowed inside the dorms. The night before my boyfriend spent the night because we didn't have any clue what the date was. The next day when they came to check for dorm keys to make sure everybody in the dorms was a dorm resident, he didn't have a key. Instead of asking us to leave once, they immediately castigated only me. They punished me by making me report to the Residence Life Coordinator twice.

I am from wisconsin so I find it bearable. It is nice in the fall and spring, it can get wicked cold in the winter. We rarely have snow days because they are efficient at snow removal.

There is wifi in all the buildings now, but because there are so many students, it can be slow. Almost every building has a computer lab. Every single building has at least one computer for student use.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt in danger at UW-Madison. There are police poles all over, there are well lit walk ways, there are buses that go all over campus and there is a system in place to be picked up and walked back to your room if you feel unsafe. The response time for the police is quick. There are key swipes outside the dorms and some inside for safety.

Just off campus lies State Street, a haven for foodies. You will have no problem finding a wonderful, unique meal here.

The available public transit option is buses and they are all free for students by going to the Union South and receiving your student transit card.

Once you are enrolled, applying for scholarships is completely online and very simple. I received a scholarship after applying this past fall.

State Street is super close to campus and offers a wide variety of dining choices. They have everything from turkish cuisine to mexican. My favorite spot to go with friends is to Ian's pizza. They literally put anything on a pizza from mac and cheese to french fries, and a HUGE slice only costs 3.50. Perfect for a college budget.

It was easy to apply to my major. I was admitted to the correct school as a freshman, so all I had to do was fill out paperwork to declare my major. My only problem is that I have two advisors and no one ever explained to me why this is.

UW Madison has many different ethnics from many different countries, but still most of students are white. I am a international student from Korea. I did not have any problem making friends in campus. People are very nice and i love them. A lot of people are democrat, but i often see republican student, as i know there is republican clubs, too.
I sometimes see christian or some other religious back ground, but i usually see atheist.

Campus life in Madison is well balanced. My classes aren't too hard so i have time do something else than studying 24/7. There is 2 big gym in Madison. one in Southeast is bigger than one in Lakeshore. However, one in Lakeshore gym has everything i need to work out.
I don't usually use libraries. i used library few time in Madison because my laptop was broken. Library has many computers to use so i didn't have to wait single second to use computer.
Also good thing in Madison is club activities. i was in fencing club, and i had learned quite a bit and had a lot of fun

Love this school. I plan to go into research as a career and find that this school has plenty of opportunities for research as an undergrad.

My specific program is very hard. As a Biochemistry major I have to take seven semesters of Chemistry, four of Biology, and a year of Biochemistry. The work load is pretty hard, but you have the University requirements to balance out all the science classes that you need to take. The one good thing about my major is that if you survive the four years, you have basically unlimited job opportunities after you graduate.

While there are plenty of bars and clubs around the campus area, those who are 21 are able to enjoy the two Unions located on either end of the campus. Both of these Unions offer free movies year round, and both have plenty of restaurants located inside that are open late for nighttime studying.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
