5 College Freshman

Athletics: UW Madison has great athletic teams and world-class facilities.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally found an apartment for next semester with which I am very happy. In the searching process, I saw quite a few very run-down and poor locations. However, pretty much anything is better than the rates for dorms.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Madison is great for restaurants. We have a ton of different, good, and reasonable restaurants within walking distance of campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I like that the administration requires sexual assault and alcohol programs for students. We all hated doing them, but I like that those issues are made salient in the minds of the student body.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties. I know people who do go and the parties don't appeal to me.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The university is good about distributing aid from the FAFSA. However, finding scholarships outside of that is difficult in such a large student body.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls offer a pretty good variety of food. It does get old after a while though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is very nice, but they charge far too much. I wish I had known more about living opportunities outside of the dorms for my first year.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The closer you get to State Street, the more expensive. It is outrageous compared to other universities, but it is possible to find fair priced places in the location you are looking.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: So many great places. I suggest checking out Hilldale to change it up!

5 College Junior

Administration: I love my professors. They are all extremely helpful and approachable. They are so full of knowledge too-- I know I am receiving an incredible education.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: You never feel pressure to go out! But if you do, you're sure to have a good time. And it feels relatively safe because there are police officers everywhere-- they never give out underages, they just want to make sure everyone is safe.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received the FAFSA, but because of my father's income I was unable to receive any scholarships. I found this frustrating since I am the one paying for school.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: There are so many places to choose from! If nothing sound good on state, there are three malls within a 45 minute bus ride surrounding campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved living in Ogg my freshman year, but many people got stuck in one of the older dorms (like Sellery). I could never live in a space that small, but I know many people who loved living there. I also loved being able to choose between the two neighborhoods-- southeast and lakeshore.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party but I've heard it's great.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Decent variety of pizza, hamburgers, green salad, fruit salad and different "ethnic" dishes. Expensive though.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love playing soccer for Fond du Lac

Great sports variety

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: As a freshman who joined a fraternity in the spring I can say I experienced both worlds of Greek/non-Greek. My advice for when looking into a fraternity is to keep an open mind at all houses you visit and if nothing stands out to you greek life is maybe not for you. On the other hand, if you are not happy with the your social scene as a non Greek I recomend looking into a fraternity/sorority because it is an easy way to get socially involved. As to Greeks being snobby yea some are but so are non Greeks too, it isn't exclusive to the Greek system. When you take a wide sample of people you are going to get the good and the bad. With the bashing of Greeks and non greeks yes it does happen but it's a small minority's of people and it should not sway your decision. Overall, the Greek system is what you make of it. You can find that party frat if that's all you want it or if you just want a small group of guys/girls to be close with you can find that also,

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is definitely big in madison you can always find something

Scholarships: The financial aid process is very easy but due to it being a state school and recent. Budget cuts do not get your hopes up

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
