    Great school for outgoing students. Tons of Resources and Opportunities but you will be constantly be in competition for them because of the size of the school. There are many extra-curricular experiences that should be explored and had as you learn and grow into your young adult years.

    Its a huge school, but amazing. Everyone is so friendly and there are so many fun things to be apart of. Once you are there it doesn't seem so big.

    Definitely upholds the work-hard play-hard mentality. Because of its large size, the campus offers over 800 activities, including Badger games (whoop!). Still an extremely rigorous school.

    The most beautiful campus I have seen. It has a great social atmosphere. It isn't party all the time and if you aren't in to that, you will find many other things to do.
