University of Wisconsin Reviews
As a current freshman starting out here at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, I can honestly say that this institution is one of the greatest in the nation. So far, UW Madison has been able to provide me with specific resources in achieving success in finding a major that suits me well. Additionally, the benefits for achieving a successful career path aren't the only thing that make UW Madison a great school, but the social environment is really welcoming as well. Yes, there is several selections of parties on campus, but there are definitely many other activities and organizations to join as well! The school is also a part of the Big Ten, so games are definitely very fun and rowdy when you go! Overall, my current experience as a Badger has been nothing but exceptional!
There is something for everyone! The University of Wisconsin-Madison boasts a lot of offerings, not only in academics but in all sorts of opportunities from amazing athletic programs to a myriad of clubs to get into. To the sports enthusiast, UW-Madison has athletic programs in football, ice hockey, and basketball which are renowned regionally, if not also nationally. To the grade-A active student, UW-Madison is also a mecca of infinite opportunities, it is even somewhat of a challenge for any student to navigate the "Org Fair" which displays the many student organizations that are available on campus. Organizations are available for students who are the soon-to-be titans of energy and even for the ones who are almost certainly going to be the consulting executives of the future. No matter what you want to get yourself into, there is always something for you in the land of the Badgers.
Overall my experience at the University of Wisconsin has been amazing! I am getting a great education, the courses are rigorous but intriguing and they offer a ton of resources to help you succeed in your classes like the many different libraries and tutors. The campus is beautiful, you get the perks of being in the heart of the city so you can interact with locals and it is right next to Lake Mendota. There is always so much to do on and off campus, there are hundreds of clubs to join and always events going on around campus, it is never a boring day. The only main concern I have is that the school is not diverse enough for me. I am African American so it can be frustrating being the outcast 90% of the time, but Madison offers a lot of safe spaces for people of different ethnicities and races. Other than that my first year was a wonderful experience and I am excited to begin Sophomore year.
