Madison, Wisconsin, is a small city that is home to the state capital of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin, as well as Edgewood College, a private Catholic liberal arts college, and Madison College, formerly known as Madison Area Technical College.
Madison is known for its liberal politics, especially with regard to UW Madison, but that is changing. The campus and city were the sites of many anti-war riots in the late 1960s, culminating with the bombing of Sterling Hall, a building in the heart of campus, in which a researcher died.
A city built on an isthmus and surrounded by four lakes, Madison is home to many attractive neighborhoods.
