3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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

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.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: We have counselors available to students and the AODA counselor does a very powerful classroom presentation. There is help readily available for students who feel they may have a problem or are dealing with addictions from other that are affecting their lives.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Applying was very easy. Keeping things up to date with the college and Financial Aid could not be easier. If I had questions, someone at the college was readily available to speak with me and straighten things out. Our school is very helpful with F.A. assistance

2 College Junior

Nightlife: The university has the 'skinny' on the night life, the community college really doesn't advertise much-possibly a few plays or programs, a few comedians throughout the semester. Unfortunately that's about it.

2 College Junior

Athletics: There isn't much advertising of athletics for our community college. There is a weight room and a pool, but not many people take part in forming teams for sports

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: We have such a variety of people from the University, to various 4 year colleges, 2 year colleges, and micro colleges. Madison is a "cultural melting pot". Restaurants, clothing stores, and activities from all nationalities are a constant sight, helping not only those in college build international knowledge and tolerance, but those who live in the city as well. Madison, WI is amazing

5 College Junior

Majors: We have a great variety of programs for degree, diploma, and certificates
