Wisconsin is proudly America's Dairyland, but the Badger State deserves to be recognized as much for its higher education excellence as for its delicious cheese. While states like California, New York, and Texas get attention for their colleges and universities, Wisconsin has built one of the nation's most impressive, cooperative, and effective public higher education systems. It's all founded on the "Wisconsin Idea," the century-old commitment to education rooted in Wisconsin's immigrant history, which saw Wisconsinites banding together to make sure each generation would have more opportunity than the last. Add in some of the most respected Catholic, Lutheran, and other Christian private universities and colleges, and students in Wisconsin have access to world-class higher education right in their backyard.
As Managing Editor Carrie Sealey-Morris explains, Wisconsin is not only "one of the best places to live"; "It's one of the best places to go to college, too, with dozens of colleges and universities that rank among the best regional institutions in the Midwest, and the best national universities too." Wisconsin's colleges "are the heritage of Wisconsin's community-minded, ever-hopeful settlers," as Sealey-Morris goes on, people who "pulled together to establish a philosophy of cooperation and common good." And it's all worked for Wisconsin: "The economy is strong and steady, the population is among the healthiest and best-educated in the nation, and in just about every way that matters, Wisconsin is a model of stability." Not a bad place to get an education and settle down.
