Letty O - 9/26/2016
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2010
"The Sociology degree at UW Madison is a great program for people who want to learn about the study and interactions of people. There are a lot of great professors teaching courses in this major and many different specific courses. I had classes from the study of social factors of sport, to alcohol, to professions, etc. I feel it really helped me prepare to be a D1 College coach in the sense that I am now more understanding of people and the effects on their life from their surrounding environment. I am a better communicator as I now understand that everyone is different and therefore must be approached and taught in different manners and may need more patience with some people than others. Overall, I feel getting a BA in Sociology is highly recommended for those who want to work with people."

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2010
"Madison is a wonderful city, and UW Madison is an excellent school. There are many opportunities for involvement in academics, extracurricular, or community pursuits. On a side note, I would advise choosing a major that is practical. I majored in Mathematics but am going back for a master's in Accounting to increase my earning potential and job security."

Degree: Elementary Education

"The University of Wisconsin Madison is a public institution led by nationally renowned researchers and professors. The curriculum is progressive and research based. In addition the education school has a close relationship with the public school system, allowing practical opportunities for students in classrooms. Also, there are opportunities to study abroad; for instance, I did half of my student teaching in Uganda. There are study abroad options all over the world for all majors and interests. The campus is lively and lovely, and new experiences are plentiful."

"I loved it. I enjoy the people that I've met and my overall experience. The school that I went to scholarship. I received a job right out of college and would not be where I am without a college degree."

"Madison was were I grew into the person I am today. I dated my future wife, I met some of my closest friends, and studied for my future career. From football Saturdays to Sunday night cram sessions, I loved it all. Few things make me prouder than saying I'm a Badger for life."

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015
"Amazing school spirit around sporting events and great academics. There are a large number of professors who are not only top in their respective fields, but also genuinely care about their students and are skilled in teaching. However, depending on the field of study, there are also too many professors who are simply there for their own research purposes. Additionally, it is not the most accommodating/supportive of students with learning and psychological disabilities."
