Off-Campus Dining: I've never really went out much, but whenever we did, it was a blast!

Administration: Our campus actually, for the most part, seems to be more lenient.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Simple, easy, and straight to the point. Hard if you have no idea what you're doing with your life in the future with majors and things like that.

Campus Food: I like the food options they have! Anything they offer satisfy me -- but then again, what doesn't? I love everything!

4 College Student

Campus Housing: UW-Barron County is linked to another owner's apartment building. This means, you'll be granted the opportunity to live in an actual apartment with 3 other people! That's just awesome!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a good variety of off-campus housing and they seem to have similar pricing as the university housing, but it all depends on where you want to be and what you want to pay for.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a good variety but most of them are hard to get to without a car.

Administration: The administration can be strict but you can tell they do it because they care, not just because they can.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am a picky eater and I can easily find something nearby that I'll love!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very clean and spacious! Very convenient to have food/washers/dryers/computer labs right in the building!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off-campus housing options in a variety of locations, at a wide range of prices, and have reasonable availability.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a wide variety of off-campus dining options with reasonable prices and convenient locations. Everything is mostly centrally located around the capital and the best places to dine include the Great Dane, Graze, Cento and the Old Fashioned.

4 College Junior

Administration: Administrative enforcement of drugs, underage drinking, and noise levels are good. The authorities try to keep the campus as clean of illegal substances as possible.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not a huge partier, I prefer ballroom social dancing. There are always dances on Friday nights at various locations on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a lot of variety in a small vicinity so you don't have to go far to find good food. The only problem is the excessive cost of eating out more than once a week.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I live in an apartment away from the center of campus, but is situated right on the bus route. Getting to and from class is easy and fast and I don't have to worry about being disturbed by rowdy college crowds.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Very nice apartments with safety features. Housing in Madison is very expensive though.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: So many great restaurants in Madison!

4 College Freshman

Administration: It is a very free campus. Doesn't seem strict at all.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a big partier. I go to parties if close friends are having them, other than that I don't stray into other people's apartments!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It does get slightly expensive, although still cheaper than most other schools. More rotating "american" or meat options would be nice in Gordon's and Four Lakes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was in Dejope, so I believe I had a better experience than most. The building is excellent- so many resources within the same building! Far from classes and busing into the middle of campus was frustrating.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not one for partying, but there is nothing better than saturdays in the fall. Football games are a ton of fun and the atmosphere on weekends is at another level.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food itself is really good. They change it up a reasonable amount, no matter what anything eventually gets old as this does. The dining halls are wonderful which helps. The prices are not kind considering how much housing already costs.

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.
