Unlike the above definition, the University of Wisconsin Madison is a prestigious university where education is everything but so is having a good time. You will find the most school spirit in Madison than anywhere else in Wisconsin. We are the number one party school but do not "fuck around" or "fuck-off". Time management is a must-have skill here (obviously if we go out everynight but still get up and get an A on an exam the next morning).
Wow, I can't believe _____ got into the University of Wisconsin Madison, he/she must have a really good GPA.

It's such a prestigious school to go to.

I can't believe you can go out almost everynight and still get a 4.0.

You go to Madison? Wow, thats impressive, I'm jealous.

The University of Wisconsin Madison is a public university in Madison, WI. It is generally known for its excellent Engineering and Business Programs, both of which are rated highly by both the Princeton Review and US News. UW-Madison also has excellent science programs, including Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. It is the flagship school of the UW system, as it usually refers to itself as "Wisconsin" (see, or the newly named "Wisconsin School of Business) and generally bashed by those who cannot get in. With its student population of roughly 41,000, it is one of the largest public universities in the US. The campus is located in downtown Madison, bordering Lake Mendota. Home to such progressives as Robert La Follette, and also due to its vast number of protests in the Vietnam War era, the city, including the university, has gained a reputation as being a hotbed of liberalism, which makes it a very awesome place. All in all, its a "public ivy", and thus you have to work very hard, but actually get a degree thats worth something. Also, there is a bit of partying between the constant barrage of papers and tests, thus giving Madison its legendary status.

Not Noob: "That is Mosse Humanities. The most polarizing building on campus."
New Student: "Doesn't it look like a futuristic fortress from a 1960's film?"
Not Noob: "Yes, yes it does."

"Yay, I got a Business or Engineering degree from UW. I'm going to be very rich/powerful very soon. Bow."
