The Badgers are invited to the Big Dance, where they'll be a No. 8 seed and face the Virginia Tech Hokies in the first round. It's a tough road, though: If they win, they'll likely face defending national champions and No. 1 seed Villanova.

Summer Term

Make summer term part of your summer plans

Summer Term is a one-of-a-kind UW-Madison experience. You can focus on one or two courses, tackling a challenging subject or getting a prerequisite out of the way. And you can finish a course in three, four, or eight weeks, rather than the full 15 weeks of fall and spring terms.

No spring break trip? Make the most of Madison

Spring break is typically associated with sandy beaches, clear skies and warm sunshine. Unfortunately, it’s also associated with money. We can't all go to Daytona or Key West. But that doesn’t mean students can’t have a great ‘staycation’ in Wisconsin and save a few dollars in the process.
