University of Wisconsin Colleges Reviews
University of Wisconsin - Waukesha has been one of the best experiences I have had in college. I have gone to larger colleges/universities and did not enjoy the experiences as much as I have done here. There are always days where there is free food and activities during the noon hour. They create such an inviting atmosphere for students and allow for relationships to stem. Every professor I have met, is passionate and loves to teach. The class sizes are small and you really get to know your classmates!
I attended the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County, one of the campuses that makes up the current UW Colleges system. Being a small two-year university, class sizes have been small, so my experience with professors has been much more personal and therefore, I believe, beneficial to me as a student than what I would have (and will) experience at a larger college. However, because enrollment numbers are so modest, the opportunity for involvement simply does not exist on the same scale it does on 4-year campuses; there are very few clubs, and those that the college does have don't boast many members. These are the primary reasons I rate my experience at UW-Colleges at three stars out of five: great learning environment, poor student involvement opportunities.
The environment at the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County is very relaxed and comfortable. I envisioned my first day of college to be full of anxiety, but I was surprised when my university helped me adjust to a new chapter in my life very easily. The professors understood what all of us freshman were feeling. The professors lent their personal time to help their students when they were having a hard time in their classes.
