    I like how the campus is very central to the city. Everything is around the capital building and it makes it seem smaller than it really is. I think that makes it better than U of Minnesota in that regard

    The best thing about a large research university like Wisconsin is the extraordinary wealth of academic and extracurricular choices. I've never been bored-there is always something I can learn or somewhere I can go. It really feels like home.

    I went here for an academic camp, and the summer program alone was amazing, and very intensive and in-depth. Although I don't yet attend the college, I dream of doing so. The campus is beautiful and in a great area, and it's very diverse with many different people and cultures. Additionally, the band programs offer something for every student interested in band, whether marching or just performing.

    I finished my application for UW-Madison a bit ago and I'm really hoping I get accepted! It has so many good reviews and it's the number 2 school for the major I want to pursue. I definitely suggest that anyone looking for a college with great education, friendly community, and beautiful surrounding area should apply here.
