5 College Sophomore

Computers: There are about 40 libraries on campus and all have computer labs. The internet is very fast.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are always people at the bars on campus and at parties.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are police all around campus and I feel relatively safe all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The city of Madison is amazing and there is always something to do and somewhere to go to have fun.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I've found it difficult to get decent financial aid at the school. If you take summer courses in addition to the semester courses, they don't offer enough in loans, and I am almost never applicable for the scholarships through the school after I fill out the brief questionnaire.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: They have some really nice setups for students outside of academics. They have places where you can do exercising, as well as places with free movies, and many other options.

Transportation: The school is pretty large, but there's not a lot of parking, so a lot of people have to go by bus. The bus schedule is pretty bad though. Sometimes you have to arrive an hour earlier, just because the next bus would drop you off a couple minutes too late.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know too much about the Greek life. I do know that the school has a lot of emphasis on different culture though.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I know that some of the alcohol on and by campus can be kind of expensive, but I've never really done any partying, so I can't really say any more on the subject.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is a really big thing on campus, so we have a lot of people who are excited for it and gather in local UW facilities to watch games.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The winters aren't too bad. They're cold, but the cold isn't too much of a bother. The summers tend to be hot and sticky though.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are great, the people in my program are really nice, and everything about the school is fantastic. They have a really nice emphasis on the well being of students.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: We have a huge number of classes, and even have classes that wouldn't commonly be found, such as anime.

Off-Campus Dining: Very close to campus, there is a large number of restaurants that are diverse and absolutely fantastic.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The campus is right by State street, so if you get together with friends, there's always somewhere you can go. There are also several fun places directly on campus that students can spend time, so it's really great.

Drug Safety: I don't see a lot of drug usage on campus at all. If anything, I only tend to hear about or see alcohol, and even then there isn't too much.

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.
