You’re a Babcock ice cream connoisseur, a frequent paddler, a hammock studier or a Terrace regular, but how much do you really know about summer at UW–Madison? Summer Term started in 1885 and has offered the opportunity to tackle challenging courses and get ahead for fall and spring ever since. It’s also become a big part of the Wisconsin Experience for many students who have taken courses online during the summer or enjoyed the beautiful summertime in Madison.
