Guide to Wisconsin Campuses

Is your child entering college next year? Choosing the best university can take a lot of time, energy, and carefully planning. But one item you can take off your to-do list is finding the best mode of transportation to help you tour different campuses or visit your children once they’re enrolled in school.

Below, we’ve created our official Wisconsin college guide to assist your family in planning a trip to each UW campus this year. In fact, we offer shuttle services to five major University of Wisconsin campuses that make it even easier to attend college tours, connect visiting friends, and plan trips home for the holidays.

Without further adieu, let’s dive into our college guide.
