Resources and opportunites for UW-Madison students by Katie Coon

UW-Madison has countless resources available for all students.  Whether you are a new student or are entering your final year on campus, take advantage of these (and many other) resources and opportunities:

Academic Resources

Study Abroad:

Learn more about the many study abroad opportunities offered both through the School of Business and through the general UW study abroad program.

Business Learning Center:

At the Business Learning Center (BLC), students work in small groups to help reinforce understanding of the materials presented in quantitative pre-business and business courses. During Learning Center sessions, students explore concepts in greater depth, are able to ask questions, and complete additional exercises to better understand material and prepare for exams.  Join a BLC study group today by going to 2240 Grainger.

Math Support:

The math department offers various forms of support, whether you’re looking for structured groups (Math Tutorial) or a free drop-in program (Math Lab).

Writing Center:

Visit the Writing Center for completing writing assignments.  Writing Center instructors can help you develop ideas for a paper, organize topics effectively and can also offer helpful advice to guide your revision.  The main office of the Writing Center is located in Helen C. White, however there are many satellite locations, including many dorms!

Opportunities:

Morgridge Center:

The Morgridge Center connects the UW-Madison campus and our community through volunteers, service-learning, and community based research.  Meet with an advisor or search the online catalog of various volunteer and service-learning opportunities offered here and around the country.

Accenture Leadership Center:

The Accenture Leadership Center (ALC) offers students unique, hands-on opportunities to develop leadership skills during their undergraduate careers.   The ALC sponsors speaker events, case competitions, LeaderShape, and offers students the opportunity to obtain a Leadership Certificate.

Student Organizations:

Actively participating in a student org is a great way to gain leadership experience, meet new people, and interact with others who share your same interests.  Whether you’re looking for School of Business organizations or campus-wide organizations, you will find over 800 registered student orgs on this campus!  If the one you’re looking for doesn’t exist, start your own!
