The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) residential learning community is a stimulating environment, where motivated women interested in science, technology, engineering, or math make strong academic and personal connections with each other as well as UW-Madison staff and faculty who share their interests. As a WISE resident, you will benefit from having a personal academic and social network within the setting of a large research university. WISE participants often develop mentoring relationships with faculty members and Madison-area professionals as well as meaningful friendships with each other.
WISE residents participate in a variety of events each year including lab and research tours, plays and concerts, as well as a yearly trip to Chicago. These events are filled with opportunities to network with professionals in the STEM fields, while also discovering a variety of interests and topic areas with your peers. WISE residents benefit from personal, academic and social networks designed to help them take advantage of all that a large research university offers. Residents also enjoy the sisterhood they feel in living on a floor of exclusively female residents within a large coed residence hall.
