Members of the @solanaquartet serenaded dozens of construction workers inside the under-construction Hamel Music Center earlier this spring, officially becoming the first musicians to perform inside the new space. #UWMadison’s state-of-the-art performance venue is slated to open in October 2019.

Students in #UWMadison’s International Student Summer Institute got an up-close look Thursday at one of the things that makes #Wisconsin special: dairy cows 🐮⠀ ⠀ The tour of UW’s Dairy Cattle Center, led by @uwvetmed student Rachel Taber, showcased how dozens of cows are used for both teaching and research on campus.⠀ ⠀ The #UWSummer Institute, now in its third year, allows first-year international students to arrive several weeks ahead of the fall semester and take an academic reading and writing class for non-native English speakers. The students also get to know campus through fun events and tours.⠀ ⠀ This year, 34 students representing 10 countries are taking part — the highest number to date.⠀ ⠀ 📷: Pa Da Lor

Molly Miller, an incoming freshman from Rockford, Minn., spent her #uwsummer in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences QuickStart program. “I chose UW because of the research opportunities. I have always been heavily interested in the Medical sciences and the research and lab opportunities here cannot be beaten. I am studying Biology on a Pre-Med/Pre-Health track.” “The Quick start program has helped me become more comfortable with my new life as a Badger. It has taught me that there are endless opportunities to make a difference during your time on campus. It has made such an impact on me, opening doors, and showing me what I have the opportunity to be a part of. I am so thankful for the program, I would have felt so overwhelmed if I had not participated in Quick Start.” “During Quick Start I learned that UW-Madison has so many opportunities to improve you not only as a student, but as a person. They offer everything from volunteer opportunities to sports and beyond. I learned a lot about the study abroad opportunities and I look forward to taking full advantage of those opportunities!” says Molly.

Lusubilo Malakbungu from Tanzania spent his #UWSummer taking classes and experiencing Wisconsin culture as a Mandela Washington Fellow.⠀ ⠀ The Mandela Washington Fellowship sponsored by the U.S. @statedept brings around 700 young African leaders to the United States each year to complete a six-week professional and academic institute at higher education institutions. #UWMadison hosted 25 Fellows from 18 countries this summer from June 19 to July 28.⠀ ⠀ Lusubilo works as a laboratory adviser at the Management and Development for Health in Tanzania, at a project that aims at controlling the HIV epidemic and integrating quality health services in the areas of family planning, malaria care, and tuberculosis.⠀ ⠀ “Despite my background in health care, this fellowship taught me to fit in multi-sectoral society with the purpose of achieving common goods. I felt welcomed by staff at UW–Madison and fellow from various countries. I discovered my strengths and looking forward to utilize them at my organization when back home."⠀ ⠀ We’ll be sharing #UWSummer stories on Instagram from July 29 to Aug. 9.
