Why Wisconsin? I chose the University of Wisconsin because from the moment I arrived in Madison and saw the campus, I felt at home and knew that UW was a fantastic fit for me. It possessed all the qualities I desired in a college. UW is one of the top ranked schools in just about every discipline and one of the most well rounded universities that I visited in my college search. One of the most impressive things was the amazing school spirit. UW has the atmosphere I wanted as a student and a student-athlete. Hands down, my number one choice was UW and I cannot wait to be a Badger!
