The UW Campus is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether on bike or on foot, there are hills and gardens, lakeshore paths and great architecture. Stop for some home made ice cream after enjoying food at one of the local eating spots.

I'm fortunate to have been able to return regularly over the years to visit UW-Madison where I graduated from some time ago. This is a first rate university in every way, offering a great college experience and opportunities for learning for people of all ages in the community as well. So proud to be a Badger...

As we are visiting scholars from another university, it was interesting to see another University, compared to the one we are at. The place is very big, very impressive and modern, complete with its own boating club. We walked around the lake, and through some of the campus, had a meal in one of the many canteens. A interesting afternoon.

The UW Madison is an attractive campus that offers a high quality education, up-to-date research facilities, a world renowned hospital and clinic. There is so much to do...arts, biking, hiking, sitting on the terrace.

As long as you can put it out of your mind that UW is left of center politically this this is a terrific place to visit. High energy baby. Even though the administration is more intent on indoctrinating the students and paying outrageous salaries to professors that rarely if ever attend a class the optics are outstanding. Concentrate on their... More

There are always so many thing happening on the UW campus. From ice cream at the Union to concerts in Mills and theater events in several venues - and then there's the sporting events. I was on campus this week for the UW Band show. What a great time!
