College Senior

Academics: It doesnt really matter what your major is, everyone treats you the same weather your going to be a doctor or if your just taking the 2 year automotive program. there are no specific aspects of my program that stick out above the rest and no need for additional facilities.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Students are involved in the Athletics, as there will always be athletes at any school. Athletics are a major point in my school.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life, so I'm not very familiar with it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's relatively safe on campus, I've never been worried about my safety while walking home/to class.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone comes from different backgrounds, so it's hard for anyone to judge anyone.

Weather: The weather during the fall semester (late August, early September to the middle of December) is generally quite nice. The summers can be hot and humid and carry into the fall semester, but because much of the area is compacted, it makes it easy to walk around or catch the bus without worrying about Mother Nature. Once winter hits however, it can be quite frustrating to walk around outside with sub zero temperatures and high wind gusts turning people into icicles. Fortunately for MATC, the campus is all in an indoor building at Truax, and so the only time weather makes a difference is the walk from the parking lot to the building.

Local Atmosphere: Madison as a town is plentiful as far as shopping and restaurants are concerned. State street and the areas surrounding the Capital have all types of shops, and restaurants with food from all over the world. Unfortunately, the Madison Area Technical College Truax campus is about 10 to 15 minutes away from the heart of the city, and so the on-campus activities are limited to none. However, if one is determined to become involved in the community life style, a short drive or bus ride can take a person to where the action is happening. Madison is a true college town, and so students make up a high portion of the population, thus making it quite easy to meet people and become apart of the social scene. Furthermore, because many MATC students transfer to UW-Madison, it is to those students' benefit to explore and become accustomed in the with the area and lifestyle of the city.

Local Atmosphere: I'm still trying to get out and see everything there is to see in this town what I have seen so far it is great.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't get to experience the night life I have young children at home and not much for that type of thing.

Campus Housing: I love that the buildings are new everything is clean and that they put money back into the college for the purposes of our education not just new buildings or remodeling.

3 College Freshman

Computers: They have the wireless I see a lot of students with their own devices for personal use now days everyone owns a laptop or a tablet it seems.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think this school is great from what I see they have an excellent health program and seems very hands on.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't participate in this if it does go on on the campus so I'm just answering from what I see I would assume there could be some form of use but if so I'm unaware.

4 College Junior

Weather: The weather in the Madison area, for the most part is mild. We experience very few severe weather days and therefore there are very few days that campuses need to be closed. If the campus needs to close we receive fair notice.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: We are a community college; we have no sororities or fraternities. Our "Greeks" are the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society for the Two Year College. As an officer for that chapter, I see first hand how important we are to helping students forge their professional futures, learn about scholarship opportunities and how to write them effectively, aid them as an academic resource, and be a main source to help them network for their futures.
