About the U.W.-Madison
Madison WI has a student population of almost 50,000 students thanks to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and several technical schools. The U.W.-Madison contributes the largest percentage with well over 40,000 students. Named Hottest Big State School by Kaplan/Newsweek, the University of Wisconsin at Madison is one of the largest universities in the United States and is consistently ranked among the top public post-secondary schools in the country. Known for its outstanding courses, professors,and academic programs, the U.W.-Madison offers more than 160 majors and 4,200 courses. Intramural and intercollegiate sports are a major component of the campus experience at the U.W. The university's highly-acclaimed athletic teams are known as "The Badgers", a term which harks back to miners who came from the Eastern United States to work the lead mining districts of southwestern Wisconsin. They could not return to their homes in the winter so they made 'dugouts' for themselves in the sides of the surrounding bluffs and hills, thus earning the nickname for repeatedly burrowing like badgers.
