6 Things To Do On A Quiet Weekend In Madison, Wisconsin
Julianne Cornell

For any Badger fan, on an off weekend when there's no home game in Wisconsin, you’re most likely unsure of how to spend your time. With no tailgates to go to, and no game to go to, what is a Badger fan to do? Well, sometimes a quiet off weekend can be nice and there are plenty of things in Madison for one to do. Here are a few:

1. Binge watch movies

Because who doesn't love a good binge watch. On a quiet weekend when it is starting to get cold, curling up on the couch with a blanket and snacks and watching a marathon of your favorite movies is exactly what you need.

2. Go shopping

We all love shopping, but sometimes we just don't have the time to go. Going to the mall on a quiet weekend is the best time. Grab your friends and head to the mall for a shopping spree. With plenty of time to kill and a ton of stores to shop in, the mall is the perfect place to go.

3. Cook dinner with friends

Sometimes it can be hard to cook meals during the week when you're busy. However, on a quiet weekend in Madison, cooking a meal with your friends is a perfect way to spend your time. Not only do you get to hang out with your friends, but also you get to have a homemade meal.

4. Catch up on things

During the week it can be hard to catch up on the little things. Whether it's doing your laundry, cleaning your room, reading a book there are always a ton of things to catch up on. A quiet weekend in Madison is the perfect time to do so. Even if it’s starting your work in advanced, this is the perfect time to do it.

5. Workout

A relaxing weekend in Madison is the perfect time to workout. Going for a run, doing yoga, or taking a workout class is a perfect way. You can sleep in late and then workout stress-free, knowing that you have all the time to do it! Working out is not only a perfect way to spend your time but also a good way to relieve stress and forget about whatever work you had during the week.

6. Go to Chicago

With nothing going on in Madison and maybe not much to do, sometimes you need a change of scenery. A great place to go to that's not far away is Chicago. It's as easy as getting on the bus or taking a car and driving the 3 hours away. There are plenty of things to do and you can go for the day and be back in Madison at night!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
