3 College Junior

Academics: If given the option again, I would have pursued attending UW-Madison. I chose Milwaukee because I grew up in Madison and thought the change would be good. Too few social, food, activity options, weak sense of community and I should have gone to Madison

3 College Freshman

Academics: The classes are interesting but not overly challenging

5 College Freshman

Academics: Studying in the library is perfect; with books on reserve you can sit and get all of your textbooks notes done in an hour (you don't even have to buy textbooks!).

4 College Freshman

Academics: The registration process for classes is fairly easy and manageable to do on your own once you know how it works. The workload has kept me busy but hasn't been overwhelming yet.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The different courses available are great. The professors are very helpful and the workload is a good amount where we don't stress as badly.
