Big 10 schools pride themselves on their educational standards and research capabilities. The University of Wisconsin–Madison is no different and attracts students from all over the world. Be prepared to work with some of the brightest students, including those who think outside of the box and are agents of change. With the size and breadth of the university, UW–Madison fosters an interdisciplinary approach, especially in the arts, and offers 12 undergraduate majors in 10 arts areas, and 11 undergraduate arts certificates. Envision yourself taking classes from world-renowned and award-winning faculty at a university that is significantly more affordable than many private institutions.
“The work culture here at the UW is invigorating. Students continually push each other to be [their] best, to become more organized, and to dig deeper into their interests so everyone can grow together.”
