    Madison is constantly rated among the top Party Schools which is great for some potential students and concerning for others. The school is what you make of it, as there is always stuff to do around campus whether it be going to sports games, hanging with friends around campus, or going to parties, and what you do is completely up to you. The school spirit at the college is outstanding, and it is impossible to walk around campus on a Saturday in fall without seeing people wearing red and white overalls running around yelling Game day!!!. Getting involved in various social clubs or Greek life also presents a lot of opportunities to do fun things and meet a lot of people.

    Your floor becomes your life whether you are in a apartment or dorm, do the floor events at least the first week.

    Attend any athletic event, walk along the lakeshore path, go to events on state street like freakfest, play volleyball, basketball, or soccer outside the dorms with friends, play an intramural, be in one of 900 clubs, go to concerts, and many more things. This city and campus is rich with fun things to do.

    See a concert at the Orpheum. Wander state street for a place to eat. See a free movie at the Union. Sit on the terrace to relax. Take a bus to the mall.

    There are so many things to do for fun. I would defiantly suggest buying football tickets and/or basketball tickets they are a bit expensive, but going to the games is so fun. Also the Hoofers outdoorsing club offers sailing lessons and you can rent kayaks when its nice outside. During the winter you can rent cross country skis and snow shoes. The terrace is a great place to hang out with friends there is always a ton of people there when the weathers nice and they sometimes have bands. There are some many things to keep you busy at Madison.

    The list goes on FOREVER. A few that I am personally interested in: the rowing team (although time consuming and rigorous, a great way to meet people and stay in shape, plus the athlete perks are astounding), the badger games (even if you don't like football, its super fun to stand in that sea of red and get hyped with all of your friends), the sailing team, and so many more! also there is an annual snowball fight: southeast dorms vs. lakeshore on Babcock hill!
