4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I would recommend living in a dorm to every incoming college freshman. It is a great way to get to know people and convenient since it is right on campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: At UW, sports are a huge deal. Not only are college kids into the badgers and their success, but so is the whole state of Wisconsin.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Growing up in Wisconsin, it's always been a dream to be a badger. The University of Wisconsin allows me to go to my dream school and has an awesome atmosphere regarding college sports and fun, working hard to succeed in school, and being successful after school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Sure, no one likes to be jam packed on one floor with 59 other bodies, but for some reason that was one of my favorite parts of being in Chadbourne this year. I should clarify quickly that the answers that I gave above in the survey section are related simply to Chadbourne Residence Hall. Chadbourne was the reason that my first year went as smoothly as it did. My roommate was fantastic, the bathrooms, bedrooms and amenities were perfect and the lounge and den areas where everyone could hang out and talk about their day made us all so much closer than most college students become when in dorms. I could not have asked for a better setup this year than what I was given, and I would not take back any of the memories that I made there. I grew as a person in the dorms, because I was forced to step out of my comfort zone and greet 59 new people within the first two weeks. Throughout the nine months that I was in Chadbourne, I made friendships that I will keep forever. Chadbourne was also very central to all of my classes, allowing for easy walks back and forth. In addition to the convenient location, Rheta's dining hall and the Flamingo Run store on the first floor were extremely nice to have, especially when it got colder and no one wanted to walk to Gordon's. I would and have recommended Chadbourne to any incoming student at Madison, and I hope to go back sometime this next year to remind myself of where I started my time as a Badger.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: If you have ever been to a Badger football game, then you know just how important sports are at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My first Badger game was an event I'll never forget and something I never want to forget. I was surrounded by a sea of red-and-white-clothed fans, cheering and jumping up and down for three hours straight. There is not sitting in the student section, only boisterous yelling and support for the athletes that are working their hardest to keep Madison's reputation for being one of the best college sports teams of all time. And though we may have lost a time or two, you could still see the proud smiles of everyone in the crowd, because everyone knew that we had tried our best and we were already looking forward to the next game. I am extremely excited to take part in these unifying sports events again this upcoming year, and I promise that I will be the one jumping the highest when Jump Around blasts through the speakers before fourth quarter.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I remember the first day I walked onto campus. The cars and people continuously buzzed around me as furniture was brought into Chadbourne and family members hugged and kissed their loved ones goodbye. I was emotional, lost, unsure of what the future had to hold... in short I was terrified. However, as the months passed and new friends were made, I realized just how amazing college can be. I bonded with my floor mates through intense Badger football games, beautiful shows at the Overture and late night stops at Short Stack. Though the large work load was something I had to adjust to, I was finally beginning to understand what I wanted in life. I found myself discovering new traits about myself that I never knew I possessed. College has been such an eye-opening experience so far, and I am excited to see what I stumble upon next. I find myself reliving memories that I made within those nine months over and over again in my head and I smile, because I remember how many laughs were shared and hugs given. I cannot wait to start my Sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. If this upcoming year is anything like the last one, it is going to be unforgettable.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Great parties, usually cheap or free to get in. I spent $5 to get a cup once and that was it.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's a reason it's been named the top party school in the country.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are easy classes to be found, but generally you will be challenged.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I don't think it's as diverse as most people think it is.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You can do almost as much partying as you want, but no one will judge you if you don't.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a mixed bag of good and bad professors. Can really vary from class to class and semester to semester.

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.
