Overall, Madison is a great school for someone who likes a big campus, diverse foods, football games, and theater productions. The most thing I like about Madison is the advising department. They are always checking in with you and making sure you are on track, I also love the school spirit. The things we do as a community are always lively. One of my greatest memories is when I took the wrong bus and I got lost from campus during my freshman year. The funny thing is that I was lost at the state capital building. Once I realized where I was, I explored the area and came upon State street, which is very famous for shopping and dining. I was able to see all of the different food choices and shopping choices that I had. After walking down the street in fascination, I realized I was back on campus. I would encourage a new student to explore outside of their campus and get to know the area very well. In addition, I would encourage them to work hard and enjoy college life because it goes by so fast.
Overall, the University of Wisconsin is a great school! It has so much to offer to its students. I love the school spirit, attending sporting events and I have met some of the best friends. If you are someone who is looking for a big state school that is strong academically and has amazing sports teams you can't go wrong with Wisconsin!
