When you cross the Cheddar Curtain you are entering Top 20 territory. And we’re not just talking football. The University of Wisconsin is consistently ranked as one of the top universities in the U.S. While enjoying top-notch academics you can gaze out at Lake Mendota from the Terrace or visit the Rathskeller. Need so time to relax? Pack your books up and march from Bascom Hill to the Mifflin Street Block Party. How about taking a quick timeout to get your Wisconsin ClassWatch™? Less fearsome than Bunyan’s Axe, but still Big Ten-quality and Wisconsin-approved.
