    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.

    Bike on the trails, hang out on Memorial Union's terrace, explore State Street, rock climb in Union South, Jump Around at a football game...

    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!

    Attend some sporting events! Even though UW students have to pay for tickets to the sporting events, it is $168 plus a $20 processing fee for one of the coveted seats at all 7 of the Badger home football games. Definitely worth the money.

    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!
