I love Madison! From the classes to hanging out on Bascom Hill to walking State Street, Madison is the perfect school. There is such a wide variety of classes which is amazing because I can take a bunch of classes in many different fields. There are also so many things to do out of class that there is something for everyone. I really like how I can be in many different clubs without having to sacrifice anything I want to be involved in. And of course game day at Madison is the best there is!

This school has a lot to it. Its huge, to begin. There are classrooms, dorms, fitness centers, and libraries miles apart. The students here are very hard working and they know how to party on the weekend. Classes are very large the first 2 years. You really rely on your TAs for help, and talking to a professor doesn't happen. There is no shortage of things to do and get involved. There are people and clubs for anything.

Overall, I love how hard-working and diligent the students are. There truly is the "work hard, play hard" attitude on campus. Throughout the day the libraries are filled, and at night the streets are filled. The professors, from my experience so far, are extremely knowledgable in their field of work; however, it is apparent many are here to do research and not to teach. Without a doubt I would choose this school again, it just requires much more effort and studying than I ever could have imagined. I think one thing that makes our school unique is how united all the students are.
