Overall Experience: I am so pleased with my choice to go to the University of Wisconsin. It has by far exceeded my expectations in numerous ways, and I would choose going here a thousand times over again. I absolutely love my classes. The UW offers so many different varied opportunities and subjects to learn. Having this wide array to chose from, I been able to learn about things I would have never thought had been possible to study, like African Migration Patterns concurrent with the Slave Trade or Articulation Phonics. Almost every one of my professors has offered to help me in my learning or meet with me on an individual basis. Though lectures and the campus itself can feel massive, it quickly shrinks with the professor's, TA's, and student organization's help. I have found two wonderful student organizations with whom I activity participate, but I could have chosen a dozen more if I had the time. In conclusion of these factors, the UW offers an amazing experience because of all the different options it does offer and helps to shape you into a fully-fledged human being.

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.
