Very busy, but easy to be expected in the capital of Wisconsin. The only problem was that there were tons of homeless people. [View Full Report]

Very nice, big campus with a great lakeside view and lots of grassy fields. There are a couple of older buildings but they're not ugly, and other buildings are very new and modern-looking. [View Full Report]

I was surprised by how urban the campus is. But the part about the campus my son liked the most, was that it was both urban and peaceful...meaning the Lakeshore area. [View Full Report]

Lots of construction in the life sciences area around Henry Mall. Good to see that. [View Full Report]

Very nice! A lot of the buildings are old-looking on the outside but very nice on the inside. A lot of the buildings have that sort of ivy-covered feel. [View Full Report]

Overall I felt like the landscape was beautiful. The fact that its on an isthmus between Mendota and Menona made it a really cool and unique atmosphere. It was also awesome with the white snow cover. [View Full Report]

The views of the lake were nice, but I wouldn't say that it's a "pretty" or "attractive" campus. A lot of the buildings were kind of bland and modern for my tastes. [View Full Report]

The campus is very beautiful-it is located on the shores of Lake Mendota and has many green areas. I gave it a 4 because there was quite a bit of construction going on. [View Full Report]

Hard to see with all the snow, but it looks like a well-maintained campus. Lots of construction going on here and there (which is a good sign in my opinion). [View Full Report]

I love the older Wisconsin sandstone bricked buildings, and most everything is either new or has old Harvard charm to it. Covered in a foot of snow might be different. [View Full Report]

Unbelievably gorgeous. By far the most beautiful campus I've ever seen (UM, UChicago, NAU, ASU, UofA, UT - Austin, Northwestern, Baylor, etc) [View Full Report]

I think my expectations were out of whack. From everything I'd heard, I'd expected to be blown away by the campus but was not. It's quite nice, though. [View Full Report]
