Athletics: Sports are fun at Madison.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Madison has many top-notch programs!

4 College Student

Health & Safety: For white people, campus is rather safe, but UW-Madison as an overall student atmosphere is not very accepting of students of color, and hate crimes are not uncommon.

Overall Experience: The best part about Madison is that professors can be very open to students coming in, asking questions, and getting to know more.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Internships can be found all around the city, and Badger alumni are everywhere, making job prospects very hopeful for after college.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Housing is sufficient, costs almost twice as much as living off of campus would, but is closer to classes and does come with some learning community benefits.

Greek Life: Greek life doens't seem to affect the social atmosphere of campus, although can be fun for parties.

4 College Student

Athletics: Badger games are incredibly popular and filled with energy.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Depending on what department you become close with, staff can be very helpful, if you go out of your way there are many internship opportunities waiting for you and connections to be made.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Knowing the number of university police is strongly pushed from the beginning. Safe Walk will also escort you across campus if you are alone and need an escort. Sexual assaults do happen, but they happen everywhere. The university is in a good part of town, so I feel safe at class, as well.

Overall Experience: The professors are generally very knowledgeable and very able. The TA's know what they're doing, too. Just because they're graduate students does not mean they cannot teach the material.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Plenty of recruiting, plenty of successful alumni. Lots of resources and internships. I haven't looked for any, but they are definitely not hard to find.

Campus Housing: Housing is never too far away from classes. Definitely reasonable in that regard. Generally, people respect quiet hours, but sometimes they don't, and punishment is never really handed down for that. The bathrooms get cleaned everyday, so shower shoes are unnecessary.

Athletics: Everyone here loves the Badgers! I don't personally know any varsity athletes, but everyone supports them. Student sections always get loud on third down! People like to be active, too, and the Southeast Recreational Facility is superb.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sexual assault rates are far too high.

Campus Housing: Dorms are awful quality, and way too expensive for how terrible they are.

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.
