Going into my second visit to the University of Wisconsin, I went in with the same mindset prior to my last visit: I wanted to get a feel of the campus and what it would be like to go to school there. Since I’ve already been on the campus before for an unofficial visit, I knew how good an academic program Wisconsin offers, which again is a major plus in my final decision.
On the visit, I watched one of their workouts. Their workouts were really intense which I liked, because their coaches pushed them and that’s something I think makes athletes better.
The one thing I liked most about the visit was being around the team and coaches and getting to know them better. I went to a volleyball game with the team and the atmosphere was great, the amount of fan support was good to see! I had a blast!

On Saturday we went to the Farmer’s Market (which was really busy) and tried different flavors of fried cheese curds, then ate dinner and played some competitive games with the Badger Family at Coach Bobbie’s house. Throughout the whole visit I stayed in a dorm with a couple of the players, this gave me a better idea of what it would actually be like to live on campus.
This entire visit gave me a better chance to see what the atmosphere would be like outside of a "Wisconsin football" (away game) weekend.
