The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a university in Madison, Wisconsin, and the main campus of the University of Wisconsin System. It was founded in 1848.
The school's athletic program, which competes mainly in the Big Ten Conference, is named the Badgers and they have won 27 national championships. The men's and women's hockey teams play in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA). In July 2013, the Big Ten will add men's hockey as one of its official sports. As a result, the men's hockey team will leave the WCHA to join the Big Ten hockey league. The women's team will stay in the WCHA.
