The Edgewater: Langdon's Newest Neighbor

You've probably seen it while driving down UW-Madison's Greek Row, Langdon Street, or have at least heard about it through the grapevine. Regardless, it's a place you want to check out.

The Edgewater: Langdon's Newest Neighbor

You may think that a new hotel is irrelevant to us college students, but here are some reasons why all of us can benefit from the Edgewater:

1. Perfect for parent's weekends.

The Edgewater has over 200 rooms, and is conveniently located right at the end of Langdon. This is perfect for those of us living on Langdon because our parents won't have to drive or walk far from their hotel when you want to see them. Plus, when they're drunkenly stumbling with you after a gameday, you can crash with them and order room-service.

2. Spa.

This place is a lot more than just a lodging facility. It has a spa that offers a blow dry bar, makeup, waxing, facial treatments, and nail services. Ladies, here's the place we've all been looking for to get pampered before formal.


Yep. This place even has a gym. To top that off, they offer personal training services for members. Their website states that there is unlimited access to three fitness studios from 5 AM – 10 PM, full-service locker rooms, a steam room, and a relaxation pool. When it's -20 degrees outside and you don't want to walk all the way to the SERF, The Edgewater is a nice 5 minute walk from anywhere on Langdon. To start a membership, call 608-535-8240.

4. Event rooms.

The Edgewater has a grand ballroom,outdoor plaza, intimate private dining areas, and two private event spaces atop each of the hotel towers. So if you're trying to find a space to host a philanthropy, fundraising event, social event, or any event really, The Edgewater might be a good place to contact.

5. Ice Rink.

You can rent skates, and warm up inside the indoor Icehouse with food and drink. It's open all season, so let the winter festivities commence.


Fellas, I'm sure any girl would love to be taken to one of the exceptional restaurants at The Edgewater. There's the signature restaurant, the Statehouse, the outdoor grab-and-go restaurant, the Icehouse, and the lake-level and waterfront restaurant, the Boathouse. Along with these, there's a cafe and even a dinner CRUISE (coming in 2015). Pretty swanky if you ask me.

If you couldn't tell by the above information, The Edgewater is bound to be one of Madison's finest hotels and event centers in the upcoming years. It even caters to us college students, and offers so many things that we can benefit from. The link to their website is, and their main telephone number is 800-922-5512.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
