Bucky List, part II: Your ideas

Last week we gave you a list of items to check off your Bucky List before you graduate. But students submitted plenty of ideas of things to add to the list, including one essential: eating cheese curds. And here they are:

1. Study in the Wisconsin Historical Society’s Reading Room on Library Mall.

A favorite place for University of Wisconsin-Madison students to study, the Wisconsin Historical Society library reading room is pictured in a fisheye lens-view on April 12, 2010, following an extensive $2.1 million renovation. During the past year, the library space was restored to much of its 1900s-era grandeur -- including re-gilded ornate ceiling details and use of period-style light fixtures -- and updated to meet contemporary electrical and communications needs. The University of Wisconsin contributed $230,000 to help furnish the room once construction was finished. ©UW-Madison University Communications 608/262-0067 Photo by: Jeff Miller Date:  04/10    File#:  NIKON D3 digital frame 87

2. Go ice skating in the shell or at a local pond/park.


3. Cheer in the student section during football season.

4. Indulge in some cheese curds at any number of local restaurants and food carts. Once your tenure at Madison is finished, so too is your opportunity to find countless restaurants serving the Wisconsin favorite.

Pedestrians sample cheese curds at Brunkow Cheese of Wisconsin while shopping for produce and walking around the Dane County Farmers' Market that circles the Wisconsin State Capitol in downtown Madison, Wis., during a spring morning on June 20, 2015. Attending the Farmers' Market is a favorite weekend activity for many University of Wisconsin-Madison students and members of the Madison community. (Photo by Jeff Miller/UW-Madison)

5. Write an opinion-editorial for a campus newspaper.

Students who submitted an item for the Bucky List also had the chance to be entered in a drawing to win some Wisconsin Swag. And the winner is Sarah Engstrom.
