Situated between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, Madison is a University campus dream. ISU certainly didn't have boat rentals or dark blond sands edging blue waters circled by endless trails. Multiple docks raced each other into the middle of the lake and young bodies soaked up the sun at their ends. Hidden from view behind tall arches of green, the trails were wide and perfectly speckled from the sunlight peeking through the leaves. Everyone from walkers to joggers to bicyclists populated its lanes. Perhaps I should pursue graduate school at UW Madison...
