The University of Wisconsin – Madison is a big place. Sometimes it can feel difficult to know where to start in getting involved on campus. Never fear! There’s something for everyone.
ISS’s BRIDGE Program (Building Relationships in Diverse Global Environments) is highly popular with our exchange students. BRIDGE is an international friendship/buddy program that connects incoming international students with U.S. students in order to make friends and explore UW-Madison and the community together.
I am currently an exchange student here and want to stay for another semester! What should I do?
It might be possible for you to stay another semester. You should first speak with your home university about whether they can allot another exchange semester placement to you. If this is possible, then have them notify our office. If this is not possible, you could stay on with our friends at the Visiting International Student Program (VISP) as a fees-paying student.
I’ve got a question not covered here/I have a problem and I don’t know who can assist me.
UW Study Abroad is always ready to assist you. We know how big UW-Madison is! If we can’t help you, it’s likely that we know who can. Schedule an appointment with one of our exchange advisors.
