3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The only positives to living in the dorms are meeting a lot of great people and the meal plan. The cheapest dorms are far more expensive than any other public university in the state, but they are not the best quality. There are some very nice dorms, but they are very expensive to live in.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The campus dining is really good, in my opinion, but it is only worth it if you are living in the dorms, which usually only lasts the first year. There are many different choices that change depending on the day of the week. If you are living off campus, you don't get the discount and it gets pricey.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The students here are awesome

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved personally in the Greek life but I have many friends that are a part of them and I get along great with them.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As far as I know, the safety and security on campus is at the level it needs to be. There are plenty of police officers ready to help if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I finished my freshman year and moved back home for the summer, but I can't wait to move back in to Madison for the school year. I love living on campus, as there is always something to do or somewhere to go.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This is a very large school, so receiving financial aid might be a little difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: In my opinion, the campus strictness seems to be what an average large public university would be like.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Almost all of the varsity sports teams here are very good. Football and basketball games are huge here and are a must to go see.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had the opportunity to hold an internship position.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Most students here meet the requirements to apply to the school of engineering after their third semester, and I will be one of them after this coming semester. Two of the big requirements are the calculus and chemistry credits, and these are sometimes known as weed-out classes, as they require a lot of work to succeed.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of the harder general classes such as chemistry and calculus can very greatly depending on the professor teaching the course. That being said, there are a lot of different options for professors and time slots for the bigger classes so issues can be worked around sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many programs at UW - Madison are highly recognized in the professional world.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of ethnic and racial diversity on campus.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It just depends on the classes. i think there is a good mix of all types of people

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I have no clue what the Greek system is like; I have never felt out of place.

Health & Safety: It's very safe considering how large (number of students and square miles) the campus is.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is really expensive compared to off- campus, but you are closer to places.

Students put a lot of time and energy into their undergraduate education. Luckily for those at UW, many feel it has been a positive experience. The college atmosphere, expansive campus, and intense academics are only some of the reasons students enjoy UW so much. Students feel they are able to form relationships with other students, as well as their professors. Furthermore, UW leaves them prepared for their future.

An individual’s undergraduate experience is one of the most exciting times in their lives. It is often the first time they are away from parents and making serious decisions about their future. Therefore, it is essential to pick the best university to spend these busy years at. UW offers amazing academics, an inviting atmosphere, and energetic student body. Its location geographically makes it comfortable as well as gorgeous. The facilities are very accommodating, as is the transportation system. Though like any school, there are things that can be improved upon or changed. Parking remains a prevalent issue, for instance. Fortunately, though, issues such as diversity and improvements to the quality of the dorm food are being addressed. Students generally leave the school feeling satisfied and prepared for what’s to come. Wherever you decide to spend your undergraduate years, definitely consider the University of Wisconsin as a practical, exciting, and fulfilling option.
