Home to the Badgers, UW Madison turned out to be an awesome stop and has also made the will-apply cut. We took a campus tour with enthusiastic students leaders who told us a bit about the history and goings on. The campus is pretty much in the city center and while Madison has a population of 250K, it doesn’t have a big city feel to it. Located on the shores of Lake Mendota (which freezes so solid you can drive a truck on it) it is picturesque to say the least.
After the tour we ate at the Tipsy Cow where Finghin got his long awaited cheese curds. He was happy.
