The the University of Wisconsin-Madison we have amazing athletics with an incredible fan base! We have 3 large athletic facilities spread out around campus that have a great variety of equipment and space. Our school does offer many intramural and club sports that get a lot of participation which is super exciting! Our varsity teams are exceptional and at every game you can find screaming fans and hear awesome cheers no matter what the score! At UW-Madison I believe our school sprit is top-notch, it's literally impossible to walk outside without seeing someone in Badger apparel

I love my school because of the great sense of community. It seems like everyone at UW-Madison has the same goals, we all want to get great grades to achieve our dream careers while still being able to enjoy ourselves on the weekends! Whether you attend a football game or a music concert, one can feel the the love and pride we have for our school. I'm so glad I chose to attend UW-Madison because there's no where else I'd rather be! This school has it all, great academics, research opportunities, almost a thousand student organizations, incredible sports, food, entertainment, and the list goes on and on! When you're not studying in one of the HUNDREDS of libraries, there are endless exciting opportunities waiting for you all around campus!

Lots of things to do on campus and off-campus. State Street has little everything you could need/want to buy. The SERF is an excellent work-out facility with good group fitness classes. Getting a UW Credit Union account is recommendable as Wells Fargo is far away. There are three UW Credit Unions in the immediate area. The intro classes are reasonable with good professors and are not too hard. The bus system is impeccable and you can always get to where you need to go (except weekends when there are less busses). If you like bikes, there's an Erik's bike shop on East Campus Mall. There's a Buffalo Wild Wings, too. The Lakeshore path is a great place to bike. We also do athletics the right way and the sports team are pretty successful. I do not think that the dorms are crummy. I live in one of the Kronshage dorms and I think it's great! A small community of 75 people with nice house fellows and a view of the lake. I do not think the dorms are overpriced because you get a lot of services for living in them. The bathrooms get cleaned everyday and the food at Four Lakes Market is discounted by 30%. Not to mention having to pay no utility bills, just your housing ones. The campus itself seems compact, too. You never have to walk more than 20 minutes to get anywhere. There are so many resources here, a career center, places to buy food, good laundry facilities, off-campus and on-campus stores and food, it's all fantastic!
