    There are always things going on every day, whether it be at one of the two unions, in the dorms, or at a student organization meeting.

    The UW-Madison campus has something for everyone and any time of the year. You have Lake Mendota right outside the classroom when it's warm. You can sled down Bascom hill when it's cold. You can walk around state street and find shops of all sorts and an insane variety of eclectic food carts and restaurants. You're moments from various concert venues, the free zoo, running/bike trails and seriously anything you can think of. Not to mention the amazing sporting events you should most definitely attend as a Badger...there's nothing like a UW-Madison football game.

    Sitting by the terrace, playing frisbee, walks on the lakeshore path, live music, farmers market, shopping on state street, museums, sporting events, trying a million types of new food on state street, walk through the capitol. THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE SERIOUSLY ENDLESS!!

    There is always something going on, from movies at Union South to parties and concerts. Sports are great to watch here as well. You can always grab a couple of friends and take the time to try every restaurant on State Street!

    For fun, walk down State Street and go into all the local shops, head to the Capitol building and go up to the top lookout, or take the bus to one of the four malls close to campus. If you are in to the partying lifestyle, there are parties practically every night.

    If you really want to have some fun, make some friends and hang out with them. But if you don't have any friends don't worry. You can take a trip down State Street and sample all the delectable restaurants the city has to offer. You can walk down Lakeshore Path and take in the wonderful scenery. You can even go down to Union South and watch a movie.

    I am a member of the University's esteemed Greek Society, so I spend most of my time at my Fraternity's house! Hanging out with my brothers and friends on Lake Mendota is something you will never forget.

    There is so much to do that I can't even begin to express it. There are free movies at the Marquee, football games, hockey games, all other sporting events, tail gating, theatre performances, poetry readings, free art classes, countless clubs that host many events with free food most of the time, bonfires at Picnic Point, dances, shoppping, and literally any type of restuarant that you can think of. My favorites place are Nepali and Korean food, which is something that I have never experienced before going to Madison. And if that isn't enough for you, I'm sure you could stop in on a party.

    Rowing, scuba-diving, swimming, ice-fishing, hiking, [homemade] sword fighting, playing (or listening to) music, etc. Also party and drinking or chilling with friends.
