Madison Area Tech Student Reviews

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.
