Colleges attract students by promising high-quality academics and professional programs, and this is no different for the University of Wisconsin- Madison. With a school like the UW, however, its reputation for academic excellence almost precedes itself. Academically, many agree that one's first few years at UW will take place in large lecture rooms, with little acknowledgement from professors. In these beginning years, it is truly up to the students to stand out in the crowd and seek out professors if they are struggling. As the years pass and students get deeper into their major courses, their relationships with professors will become vital; however, if students find themselves not being able to get the professor's attention, try the class TAs. These instructors are usually graduate students, and understand students' needs first-hand.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is ranked among the top 50 academic institutes in the nation, and many of its departments lead the country in education. Notably, the Business School is ranked third for their risk management program, and Engineering holds the same rank for their nuclear program. More so, UW offers academic programs in a variety of fields. Their liberal arts school is one of the largest in the Midwest, offering everything from creative writing to zoology. At UW, students can work towards their degree with confidence that they are receiving an excellent education.
