Check out, then check off what makes UW great! What's on your bucket list?
In Madison, nothing says summer quite like the Terrace does. A long-time favorite of students and alumni, it is the ultimate place for conversation and relaxation.
Immediately following the end of my Friday exam, I met some friends for lunch and drinks at the Terrace, the outdoor patio of UW-Madison. The Terrace overlooks Lake Mendota and its bright colored chairs provide a fun atmosphere, making it the obvious location to start celebrating summer.
The orange, yellow, green and now blue! chairs were filled with graduates and their families taking photos and enjoying commencement weekend. It was such an exciting thing to see, knowing that in just one year my friends and l will be doing the same things.
But for now, I am happy to sit and enjoy perfect weather, pitchers of beer and cute dogs passing through.
In addition to being a great casual hangout place, the Memorial Union Terrace hosts weekly outdoor movies and concerts throughout the summer — something I will definitely be partaking in as much as possible!
