Throughout my time spent in high school I was a very active FFA member. After traveling all over for many conferences, trips, and speaking competitions I quickly discovered that UW-Madison was the place for me. I strongly believe that your choice in housing is a huge factor that goes hand in hand with your college experience. I first heard about Babcock from my Agricultural Education teacher as well as my FFA Advisor Mrs. Jennifer Russell. She notified me that the house was still looking for a few individuals to fill the house for the 2019-2020 school year about halfway through my senior year at Shullsburg. After some online research and one quick visit to the house, I knew I would be proud to be able to call Babcock home. The meals are great, the members are supportive, and just the overall community feeling of the house is unbeatable. Babcock is also very affordable which was another deciding factor in my decision.
