I would say check out the restaurants near the Capitol and Naples 15 is my favorite restaurant of all time. Red Sushi is yum too.December 1, 2019 at 8:22 pm #6828Saksham GargParticipant
Picnic point, and try as many restaurants as you can find.December 3, 2019 at 3:24 pm #6858TylerParticipant
I have to support the students who say to go to football games. Must-do experience before leaving Madison as a student.December 5, 2019 at 1:48 pm #6890Carter EmersonParticipant
I would definitely recommend renting out a fire pit at picnic point for a night. There are five locations to choose from and the wood is provided(bring kindling). Also, rent kayaks/paddle boards from the terrace for a day on Lake Mendota. For late night activities, I would recommend the piano bar on state street.December 5, 2019 at 4:28 pm #6893Benny BoelterParticipant
I would highly suggest the Farmer’s market down by Capital Square when it is in season. It is usually on Saturday mornings and they have really good fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as the best cheesy bread I’ve ever had.December 8, 2019 at 8:15 pm #6916JordanaParticipant
I would highly recommend my favorite restaurant on campus: Ha Long Bay. It serves traditional Southeast Asian food including Thai, Vietnamese & Laotian dishes. It is located on Willy St. and it is so popular that it is always difficult to get seated without waiting for 30+ minutes. If you do go I highly recommend the pad thai or the squash curry dish.December 10, 2019 at 12:59 pm #6933Zach BonkParticipant
Something that has been on my Madison bucket list for a while now is a Mallard’s game. I have heard great things from other people and there have also been some pretty good baseball players who have played for the Mallard’s recently, so that should definitely be something you try to do.December 10, 2019 at 8:50 pm #6962Jared LangenohlParticipant
Hey Adam! You’re probably pretty close to graduating by now, but I hope you were able to do some of the things mentioned above as your days on campus wind down–I’m sure you’ve probably done this by now, but if you haven’t made it over to Mickey’s Dairy Bar yet, that is a must! Best of luck after graduation!December 10, 2019 at 11:52 pm #7017Owen CarrParticipant
I’d highly recommend going paddle boarding on Lake Mendota. You can rent them through Hoofers for a fair price.March 2, 2020 at 12:04 pm #7196Maxwell RoitsteinParticipant
I think to create a list of restaurants with friends to go to before you graduate. I know whenever I have the time/money to go out, I always revert to the same 3-5 places. Go on google and find restaurants you can travel to and find some local places to eat at.March 7, 2020 at 3:22 pm #7212William WironoParticipant
Taking memorable pictures with your friends around the campus would definitely leave lasting memories. Some good spots would be Bascom Hill and the Lakeshore path, especially in the summer.April 21, 2020 at 12:48 pm #7362Aidan SmithParticipant
Spending those warm spring/summer days on the terrace are days I will never forget. The terrace is a must for sure.
