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!!!
