A typical University of Wisconsin-Madison is a hard-worker who is dedicated to their future and education. I would recommend any student who is willing to work hard and who can manage time effectively. They must be able to read "dry" textbooks without losing focus and to stay on top of due dates. In conclusion, University of Wisconsin-Madison has a very unique student body, but anyone who works hard and is dedicated can be successful.

At a university such as UW-Madison there is no "typical" student. Everyone here is very intelligent yes, but in many different ways. Everyone's brains work differently and each individual has talents the person sitting next to them in lecture may not have. Students here are far from being able to be put in a description as limiting as the word "typical". Any person who has some kind of passion, whatever that passion may be, would be a good fit at this university. There is one generalization I can make about students who attend this school, they all have dreams and aspirations they are willing to work for and not just wish would happen. The students at Madison are very hard working and determined to make something of their lives, no matter what that something may be. The best part of this university is that my fellow students do not fit in a box. All of us are capable of many different things and we have the ability to not only learn from our well established professors, but more importantly we can learn from each other.

ANYBODY can come to UW-Madison! There's a variety of programs, a variety of things to do, a variety of folks that makes anyone feel welcome. The overall vibe of Madison is kind of funky and kind of left-wing, but anyone can find their niche in this city.

Work hard play hard is the motto of the student body here. You have to put in serious hours of work and study during the week to be successful, but everyone knows how to have a good time on the weekends. Students know how to balance work and life, and maximize their college experience!

I think the stereotype is that UW students study hard and party hard, but there are a lot of people who lean one way or the other. Madison is a great place for progressive, creative thinkers and more hard-science creative thinkers alike.

The typical UW-Madison student is sociable and welcoming. They always have a smile on their face and are quick to make friends with strangers. UW-Madison students, also known as Badgers, are very prideful of their University, and are willing to share that with everybody. Badgers are intelligent, both academically and socially. They are quick to support their fellow Badgers, and those in need throughout the community. The idea of volunteering is important to the students of UW-Madison, whether through Badger Volunteers, greek life, or unaffiliated with a group. UW-Madison students are hard-wired to want to make a positive impact in the world, no matter how small, because any positive impact is influential to the world. It's hard-wired because Badgers believe in the Wisconsin Experience, which is taking what they learn in the University and applying it to the world to benefit all people.

I don't believe there is a "typical" University of Wisconsin - Madison student. This university is very unique in that there is a place here for every single person who chooses to attend. Students here are an assortment of all kinds and it is impossible to enter a short phrase into this text box to describe all of us. And, when I say, "us," I am talking about the community of the student body. We are in it together to complete our education and we are here for each other.

This school is the epitome of universities that lacks a "typical student" type. Everyone here is so unique--there is great diversity in appearances, talents, likes, and dislikes. Many are active in sports, music, or art, while others are into one of the hundreds of very unique clubs and organizations like the "Cheese Club" for instance. Anyone can find there fit here.

There is really no "typical" University of Wisconsin- Madison student. With about 43,000 students enrolled, there are all kinds of individuals- all with different goals, opinions, lifestlyes, and passions. I personally enjoy that it is this way however, as it opens up to all students the chance to get to know people who aren't the same as them. This diversity allows for all kinds of positive, foward-thinking collaboration. If I had to describe simply however "who" goes to UW Madison, the thing that binds us all together is our love of the school, and the learning opportunities it provides us with.

An average Badger is extremely spirited about the University of Wisconsin. They are smart, hardworking, but they also are related and like to have a good time. Cold resistance is a must. Love of snow helps immensely. Finally, the average Badger must have TONS of energy, because the UW will take you on the ride of your life.

A typical University of Wisconsin-Madison student is dedicated to their education, studious, but also fun-loving. There has to be some balance between school and fun otherwise students will burn themselves out with too much studying or fall behind in classes if they are more interested in socializing. UW-Madison is not an easy school therefore, only students who value their education and have good time management skills should attend. It is also not cheap so students should be financially responsible in funding their academic careers.

A typical Badger is friendly, intelligent and tough. I say tough because if you've experienced a Wisconsin winter, walking 20 minutes to class can be an excursion. Climbing an ice and snow covered Bascom Hill is no easy task either. If you're looking for conversation, look no further than the person sitting next to you. It's easy to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger. The friendly attitude of the students provides a fantastic learning environment as well as a way to make new lifelong friends. Among these attributes is a Badger's passion for learning. Their ability and willingness to learn as well as teach is what makes this university so great. Anyone who possesses these qualities would be a great fit at UW-Madison.

Our university is so diversified that it is hard to pin-point a specific type of person that should attend. Our student body is made up of all types of people, from small town country kids to city folk; from the crazy party kids to the book worms; from the independents to the ones that need extra guidance. The things we all have in common are our pristine intelligence (a pre-requisite for being here), our determination to have a successful career, and our love for the Badgers.
