    UW-Madison is a very diverse school with many vast opportunities. It is a great research school that offers many over seas opportunities. Madison is also a beautiful city by two beautiful lakes.

    Great University with everything you need to succeed in and out of the classroom. Awesome sports atmosphere and the student body is inviting and endearing. No matter who you are or where you come from, you can find a place to call your own.

    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.
