4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of off campus dining options. Cuisine options include Mediterranean, Afghan, American, or Mexican just to name a few. There are local dining options and chain restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food and hours are fine, but if you live in off-campus housing, then the prices increase significantly, even though you're a student.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity is really promoted on campus - when we came in for orientation, they flat out told us that it was expected that we accept everyone for who they are. It's great!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The Union (one of them, anyway) just underwent a remodeling - I can't wait to see how it turns out!

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I found my boyfriend there, and I love him!

Majors: Getting into the business school is hard but so worth it!

College Junior

Greek Life: I know very little about Greek life

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Not a ton of healthy options.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Alcohol policy is pretty lenient.

4 College Senior

Majors: The pay for internships is much higher than most other jobs you'd be able to find for part-time employment. They are typically 40+ hours per week, 5 days a week, and usually go from mid-May to mid-August. They look awesome on your resume and are a great way of molding your education into applicable skills

Majors: The advisers within the Engineering department are somewhat incompetent but other than that the department is well run and provides a great education to it students.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are so many women on campus that I would die to have a relationship with. Finding the right one is hard, but there are so many fish in the sea here that it is hard not to find one too!

Diversity: I would love to have a more diverse friend group, but most ethnic groups tend to co-mingle without interacting with other groups...

Campus Housing: The key to living on campus is to find a place that will accommodate your needs. I live only 60 miles away when I'm at home so I didn't need a place to live over the summer but most leases at full 12 month leases so you have to pay ~$1500 for a place that you're not even living at...

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Bar scene on campus is amazing, make friends with the staff and you'll be sure to get drink specials and/or free rounds

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing quite like downtown Madison on a Badger Game day...the atmosphere is electric!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: As an engineering student the future is bright for myself and my peers. Engineering companies and the like actively seek out Wisconsin engineering grads because of the rigor of our education and the breadth of our knowledge

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses are hard, and the professors are often unhelpful. But the degree you get at the end will be so worth the time and effort and you will have had the best time of your life and made lifelong friends!

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Drinking is a large social norm in Wisconsin and therefore the Police need to be more strict with regards to maintaining safe drinking habits

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.
