If you don’t like brats and beer on a sunny day with a view of the lake, skip this place. Seasonally they offer barbecue too.

Seat of knowledge, beatiful campus (even if a bit cold in winter). I would hang out on campus as a high schooler. Was proud to attend as upper grad. Some of my heart will always remain in Madison.

Visiting for a conference and the campus is stunning. I love the old architecture mixed with modern. The views from the overlook, how pedestrian friendly campus is, the sheer size of it all. Highly recommend a visit!!!

Madison is lucky to have such an excellent campus and professors. Too many teaching assistants that need to speak English better. I had a trigonometry teaching assistant that I couldn’t understand at all, but I had to pay for it anyway. Hope great professors will...More
