Why Wisconsin?
My sister, mom, uncles and cousin all went to UW-Madison and loved it. I grew up hearing all about their wonderful experiences here, making me eager to have my own adventure at Wisconsin. It can offer me an amazing education, athletic career, social life, and will let me grow incredibly as a person. I'm extremely proud to be a Badger, especially to have the honor of running on the track and cross country teams
