What is your favorite on-campus hang out?

I really like the DUC because I like the different student organizations offices down there. They are really friendly. I also like the occasional nap in the NFAC with those padded benches. It’s a good spot to just chill out.

Why do you think this school would be appealing to other students?

The student organizations are definitely a great place to go if you want information on anything or even just to talk to different people. Some of them even host stress relief programs, not to mention we’re all just a friendly bunch so you could literally walk into any one of them and have 5 or more people be like, ‘Hey how’s your day?’

What is an on-campus hang out you would like to go to more?

The Brewhaus. I work right next to it and I never get to go because I’m always so busy going other places, but it always looks like they’re doing cool stuff in there. They have nice low lighting and comfy seating with live music and stuff like that, so if time allows I’d like to go more.

What is your favorite on-campus hang out?

My favorite on-campus spot would have to be on the second floor of the NFAC there are benches and that’s my favorite napping spot on campus, so that’s probably my favorite hang out.

Why do you think this school would be appealing to other students?

It’s small enough that you recognize a lot of the people who walk past on the way to classes, but it’s also big enough that you don’t see all of your friends every day. So it’s like you’re still meeting new people, but you also always have that familiar face that you get to see every now and then. That’s what I would say students would find most appealing who are looking at smaller schools because bigger schools like Madison it will be very unlikely that you see people you recognize every day. You would definitely have to go out of your way to see the same people every day, but here it feels a lot friendlier, especially if you are a long way from home.

What is an on-campus hang out you would like to go to more?

I don’t get to go to Schmeeckle as much as I’d like to. Especially because when it gets cold outside it kind of loses its appeal a little bit, but my goal by the end of this year is when Lake Joanis freezes over to finally go out to the island because I never got to my freshman year, so that would be the on-campus location I’d like to go to more often.
