University of Wisconsin - Madison

United States

The University of Wisconsin — Madison is the official state university of Wisconsin and the flagship campus of the University of Wisconsin system. The beautiful, historic campus spans 936 acres and the University comprises 13 schools and colleges. It is often referred to as one of America’s ‘Public Ivy’ universities.
