4 College Junior

Local Area: Madison is a large enough city that it has a lot to offer. There's lots of trails, movie theaters, the student unions, and many other local venues to provide things to do.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The local area is very community based, and urges citizens to get involved on local and state levels. There is always charity events going on, college ball games to attend, and organizations to get involved in. Though the city is mostly made up of politically liberal minded people, they appreciate everyone that is proactive about helping the community.
