    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.

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a large school with a huge campus, however my furthest walk to class from my dorm is twenty minutes. While the lectures are large, you have plenty of opportunities to talk to the professor or TA during office hours, which makes asking questions much easier. The vast opportunities to get involved in clubs and organizations fosters many friendships and connections throughout campus.
