Public transportation around Madison is amazing. Every student receives a free bus pass and any route 80 or above is also free. The only problem with the transportation is that on rainy days, it fills up extremely fast. If you need to make it somewhere on time, make sure to leave early for the bus by at least 5 to 10 minutes.

The campus dining areas are pretty good. The dining facilities were recently revamped giving the students more options. State Street offers great options of food for students sick of the dining hall which will happen. Also, Madison Fresh Market and Trader Joe's offer options to students wishing to cook their own meals.

I've absolutely loved my professors at UW-Madison. They tend to cater to students with as many office hours as possible and are extremely flexible with scheduling private office hours. While the work load for some classes is heavier- four to six hours of reading a night for one class- the professors make a point of listening to the students and accommodating for essays and tests.

A very large variety of off campus dining options. Students living on campus always have state street to go to as well.

The campus is lenient for the most part from my experience, but I have heard horror stories of mean RAs that are too strict. But at the end of the day, the campus wants to merely protect its students and the students are able to have fun nonetheless.

A lot of options when it comes to off-campus housing and most students will opt for these options either after freshman or sophomore year. It is very possible to find a place with a great location and a great price as I have had a lot of UW friends get apartments with much success.

A lot of computer labs on campus, but since everyone going to college usually has a laptop anyway one is not forced to use the labs. The wireless network is fast and accessible everywhere (in my experience) on campus.

Madison is an awesome college town that is very proud of its UW students. The surrounding areas really cater to all the needs a UW student could have. Plus Midwesterners, especially Wisconsinites are among the nicest people in the US.

I think that the campus strictness is pretty fair. However, one downside to campus safety at Wisconsin is that police are permitted to patrol the residence halls. Since Wisconsin has a party school reputation, this becomes problematic for the freshmen trying to have a fun time in their room. I think this allowance is an invasion of privacy and police should not be allowed on each floor, but rather be restricted to the main floor.

There are many good options from a variety of cuisines. Try campus mall food trucks, State street, Capitol Square and even getting a bit further off campus for some interesting restaurants. There's a variety of price ranges, so you can often find something for any budget.

Madison is a pretty good city for a college student. Outside of student life, it's a very picturesque city. There are 4 lakes, an arboretum and many parks to enjoy. The night life is pretty good (if some times narrow in options) and State Street is a bustling hub. There are many farmers markets and friendly people! You can catch theater and concerts, but it's rare for big names to come through the city.

Campus policies are clear and sensible, but not strongly enforced. There is a good deal of underage drinking and a very minimal amount of penalization in comparison. When students are caught, however, punishment is quite severe.
The university is a public, state school so most of their policies are determined by laws rather than morals. Attendance policies are determined by professors, but plagiarism is banned; Binge drinking is ignored, but underage drinking is punishable, etc.

UW Madison is an amazing research institution! There are so many academic opportunities in all fields and ways to gain some excellent experiences.
Badger love their school and school pride is strong! Attend any sporting event and it will be incredibly apparent.
The social scene offers something for everyone, but some scenes require more effort to find.

Campus dining was not the healthiest when I was living in the student dorms. There was always a salad bar, but very few other, healthy options. I believe things have improved since then.
Off campus dining is amazing!

The Terrace and Memorial Union are amazing spaces for students to gather and experience campus. The Memorial Library is also a great space. Campus is large and there is great variety, which is a pro and a con to being a student there.
There is a lot of school spirit, but it tends to appeal to one particular sort of crowd. I would like to see the same variety in student life activities as there are in educational opportunities, but I believe the school is striving to get there!

Since the campus is so huge and spread out the school tries to get wireless everywhere but of course there will be blank spots. Whenever you are in a building you have wireless though, and the speed are reliability are normal too.

Some frats and sororities throw a lot of parties, but they are mostly populated by freshman. There are others that actually have a good mission and help the community though.

Snows a lot and is cloudy all the time during the winter, which is for most of the year. Summer's are beautiful but no one is around to enjoy it. Fall is the perfect weather.
College Sophomore 2013-07-02T03:43:49Z
Social scene is great but only for those who want to drink. The parties are where most kids meet friends and have a good time relaxing after a long week of class.
College Sophomore 2013-07-02T03:42:55Z
Food is great but gets boring after a while. There is a salad bar and ethnic options. Not a lot of options for vegans or vegetarians.
College Sophomore 2013-07-02T03:40:35Z
There are lots of great places to study on campus. The student centers and unions are a good place to study and grab a bite.

The football and baskettball programs are legendary! Lots of fun with friends and a great way to spend the weekend

The academic rigor is intense, however I do believe the UW is catered to one kind of student only and is not opened to students with different learning styles or ideas. Registration process/system is great and is done in a fair and simple manner. Workload can be intense and is very difficult for me to take more than 13 credits per semester as most students aren't working half to part time. Professors are usually great, every once in a while you can get one that thinks they know everything and do not know how to teach/listen only how to speak.

I am in the college of International Studies and have no complaints. I changed majors and switched colleges half way through my college career and it was seamless. The Advisor Ricardo Court is an excellent advisor for the major and helps with all issues. The workload involves alot of writing because of the nature of the program. There aren't too many specific facilities for the IS major. I have not looked for internship/job opportunities through the school although I know they are available on the school website.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
