Undergraduate Freshmen Admission

There are many roads, but only one epic journey. Yours. Since 1846, we’ve helped students discover their unique path to a life of success and meaning. As Wisconsin’s first college, we’re true pioneers and that spirit of adventure and exploration comes through in everything we do. You’ll find a culture that engages curiosity and nurtures discovery. You’ll be encouraged to challenge yourself and consider new ways of looking at the world. While you’re preparing for your career, you’ll also be learning more about who you were meant to be. And we’ll be here to support you every step of the way.
