Off-Campus Housing: In deciding on off-campus housing, it really depends on how much money you are willing to spend. There are plenty of GOOD apartments that can cost ~400 a month. However, there are also many apartments that will cost over $800 a month, and if you are prepared to pay that amount, you might as well live in Ogg, Dejope, or Smith halls.

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is wonderful. There is something for everyone here. You have the choice to either live on the outside of campus on the lake where it is calm and quiet, or you can live right in the center of campus and always have something happening just down the street - or in the room next door.

Off-Campus Housing: Nice & close housing is SUPER expensive. Parking is almost out of the question. Aside from those setbacks-most apartments close-by are very nice & fairly easy to view & lease.

Greek Life: I don't really know much about Greek life but I would say it is pretty average. It's not necessary to be in one because it's so easy to have a social life without that in Madison but being in one can be a good experience.

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.
