3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All my professors have been excellent except for in the math department. The professors I've had in math have been difficult to understand and basically read from the textbook. Other than that they are great and passionate about the topic.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very respected school. Great value especially engineering.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's nice for getting used to the school early on cause everyone in there is new and figuring stuff out but it's really over priced and not a very nice place to live.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not part of Greek life but from what I've heard it seems to be a good thing to join.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The varsity sports are great and fun and the teams are successful. Intramurals are competitive but still just for fun. Workout facilities and good but could be better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are fairly difficult but some professors are really great so you learn a lot. Sporting events are very fun, everyone is passionate about the teams. There's a lot to do in this city making free time with friends a good time.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are abundant. Just be careful not to drink too much.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are really fun! Sometimes they are a little rowdy and police stop them though.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It's hard but rewarding. Being challenged is important in a college.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved my experience in the dorms. Sometimes I even miss it.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is horrible. Don't go Greek. I dropped my sorority right away.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love going to badger football games. The atmosphere is like none other.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. It is the best decision I ever made.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wisconsin wasn't actually my first choice but I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else now that I'm here. Looking at how the student life actually is at the other schools I was looking it would not have worked for me, and I'm happy that I ended up at Wisconsin.

Overall Experience: A lot of recruiters come to Madison looking specifically for UW students. There are regularly career and club fairs at the Kohl Center.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are the dorms. Living in Southeast is fun because there's so many people and you're in close proximity to downtown, but you are definitely not paying for luxury. Overall, my dorm experience has been fine and what I would have expected.

Greek Life: Greek life at Wisconsin is definitely a great networking experience. You can join it and have a great time, but you can also not join it and have a great time. I joined greek life and would definitely recommend it because you meet so many people and have a network of people in your house that you can always connect with. The parties are fun and a lot of the times non-greeks try to get in to them, too. I'd recommend giving it a shot if you're thinking about it.

Athletics: There have been arguments that Wisconsin has the best athletic department in the country. Our football team is consistently one of the top teams in the Big Ten, our basketball team is unreal. Sometimes it's hard to tell whether Badger basketball or football runs Madison. Even our women's teams are top-notch and consistently finish well in the country (women's hockey making it to the Frozen Four and women's volleyball competing in the national tournament).

Overall Experience: I love being a Badger and would tell anyone that's considering coming to do so. It's a great university with challenging academics and a great reputation amongst employers.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Administration could easily be doing a better job

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.
