The education program is competitive and also very intensive. There is also a huge range of courses offered outside of the major and a lot of learning communities dedicated to various things.

    The University of Wisconsin- Madison is everything someone could ask for in a college experience. The campus and surrounding city overflow with life and excitement, from walking down State St. and visiting the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, to spending a Tuesday night studying into the wee hours, and seeing others do the same, the sense of community cannot be matched. I feel at home here, and I want to have everyone come be a part of this family.

    i have only visited UWM a few times but I am absolutely in love. It is so beautiful and feels like home. There are so many students but the school has a perfect small-town feel to it.

    The combination of big university, country life, and tour city brings great number of unpredictable and unique experiences; either if you are laid-back or wild, you have a place to belong here. Exploration awaits and is always encouraged; guidance is available along the way and advices are given eagerly but not imposingly. It's also a good place to study.

    UW Madison has one of the most beautiful campuses I have seen. I visited the school in the middle of winter so it was freezing but the people there seem so normal and down to earth. Definitely looking to apply.

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison prepared was excellent in preparing me for the real world. The School of Music is one of the best in the midwest. I made great life long friends whose friendships I will always cherish.

    There is always someone to go out with and walk you home at 3am, just as there is always someone to go to the library at 6... and still walk you home at 3am . Everyone studies just as hard as they party. Badgers will be the most enthusiastic, proud and friendly people you will ever meet.
