The Wisconsin Experience

The Wisconsin Experience, much like the Wisconsin Idea, is one of the big things that sets us apart. While the Wisconsin Idea is about our students giving back, the Wisconsin Experience is how we, as a university, give back to our students.

At UW–Madison, every student will have their own, unique experience. The Wisconsin Experience is a way to customize your education and make it exactly what you want it to be.
