As a “nationally renowned” “top public university” that many call “the best college in the Midwest,” the flagship of the University of Wisconsin system offers a “great school for [a] good price.” UW Madison offers a stunning array of resources: over 5,000 classes, more than 2,000 professors, and a library system that boasts over fourteen million books and other artifacts. Students are encouraged to take advantage of their surroundings in Madison’s ethos that “the whole great state of Wisconsin is at once the laboratory and the responsibility of this flagship campus.”
