University is well situated and integrated with the city of Madison, and there are great places for students to live and recreate. All in all, a top level university town and atmosphere. Lots...

Throughout Madison, Wisconsin there are plenty of things to do, throughout the year. But, early April is typically the timeslot for Wisconsin Film Festival in this Capitol City. I try and attend every year (because I write about films & festivals); and I try bring along new people/audience each year to experience this great movie mania (in 2014 it also... More

My daughter and I attended the magic flute opera at UW Madison. The performance was full of talent, humor and overall was so delightful! Can't wait to see what else is happening, it was nice to visit the area and see something so entertaining!!

One of the best place for our local to relax, walk, run and have a nice picnic surround by nature. We try to visit with our dog whenever we can. Every time we will find something different from the last time visit. A great place for relaxing. See below link for more info. http://lakeshorepreserve.wisc.edu/visit/picnicpoint.htm

There's a little known mansion on the grounds of the University that is just a must see attraction when everything is in bloom when we were there, Another is the State Capitol that is open to the public to view. One more thing while we were there they had what they call a street fair, they call it "Maxwell Street"... More

Having been through Madison driving cross country I didn't realize how nice the University is until we did this college visit! It's beautiful and the layout is so nice compared to many Universities we've been visiting. Madison is very nice.

Spacious and lively campus; very close to the state capital; restaurants, bars, shopping areas all around. Every time I visit the campus, I make sure to stop by at Daily Scoop either at Memorial Union or Union South to get a few scoops of their famous Babcock Dairy Ice Cream. It's by far the bets ice cream I ever had... More

Bustling, beautiful campus surrounding the state capital. Amazing Autumn colors & scenery in September. Great shopping including boutique specialty stores. Whole Foods, high end restaurants and family eateries. Small town atmosphere close to Madison and the university. Great experience. I visit every year.
