Cameron - 3/20/2017
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"I truly enjoyed my time at UW-Madison. I had the opportunity to work with excellent faculty members working on a variety of projects, and to learn from their academic and field experiences. I also benefited greatly from the International Internship Program. I was selected for an internship with the government of Chile, and spent a summer working with them in Santiago. The university facilitated this internship partnership and made the process very straightforward and manageable. I was even able to receive credits towards my degree for this internship."

"University of Wisconsin-Madison is a fantastic college with a great reputation in the Midwest and northeast. The school has strengths in certain areas including but not limited to engineering, economics, real estate, and finance. The atmosphere and culture of the school is great, but it is not the most diverse school in the Midwest region."

"Madison is a great place to go to school because of the combination of great academics and an awesome big college town. The school leads right up to the capital, which allows students to easily stay involved in protests/events happening there (such as the farmer's market on Saturday mornings). There are lots of resources, including student organizations for almost every possibly subject, to help you get involved in what specifically interests you!"

"The University of Wisconsin-Madison is notorious for its rigorous curriculum, focus on giving back to the community, and challenging the status quo. Hailed as a public Ivy, UW-Madison lives up to its brand. The classes I took not only challenged me academically, but also emotionally and mentally. Despite the large class size when one is taking the general courses, the Teacher's Assistants take the time to build as much rapport as they can with their students: emailing them to inquire why their attendance have been low, encouraging constructive conversations, checking in with them during class time, etc. Though diversity is still an issue - with many allegations of racially charged incidents in the past - they are working towards building bridges to be as inclusive as possible. The Multicultural Student Center is noted for its programming that focuses on addressing racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, and a plethora of other discriminations that students face. Additionally, there are active cultural student organizations that seek to challenge single narratives of their culture. In recent years, UW-Madison has undergone a dramatic change to crack down on sexual assault in their community, predominantly in the Greek community. More students who have been assaulted are speaking up, and the University - while not all their responses have been appropriate - continues to seek new ways to protect victims and survivors. All in all, while UW-Madison does have its flaws, my experience there have impacted me to open my eyes to cultural diversity, protect and serve communities, and be a leader in today's society."

"UW-Madison is the best school in Wisconsin. Not only are faculty world class but your peers and colleagues come from all walks of the life also. Great networking and research experiences especially for science majors. The university is also so vast where you can find a niche for any major of interest."

Erin Wolff - 2/28/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014
"While there is limited racial/ethnic diversity due to its location in the Midwest, there are great chances to experience gender, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, religious group, and culturally-related diversities in this city and the university does an excellent job of preparing students to confront these differences and learn how to function in today's society by examining past ways of thinking and challenging these by forming their own set of ideals and values throughout their undergraduate experience. The social, political, and environmental climate are all unique to Madison, WI, and I wouldn't change my experiences at this university for anything."

"UW Madison not only has one of the greatest college atmospheres in the United States, but arguably one of the best Academic preparation programs as well. The faculty at Madison went above and beyond to develop connections with students and ensure that each student was well-prepared for any career they wanted to pursue. It truly was an honor to be a part of such an amazing school."
