    One of the nicest student unions. When the weather's great, sit outside with a pitcher of Spotted Cow, a brat, and watch the sailboats go by.

    I've only been here in the summer and in the evening, but this is a fine-ass magnificent giant patio space of epic proportions. Get a few pitchers and popcorn and watch the stars rise in the sky.

    Great view across the lake. Fantastic place just to hang out or watch movies or concerts! Go inside and get Babcock Ice Cream from The Daily Scoop!

    Great for a group of people to go and hangout. Watch out for underagers bc they do make checking rounds. And if you do drink might as well just get the pitcher.

    If you're aching to work outside... Wi-fi is restricted to students and faculty, but if you're a Lifetime Wisconsin Union Member, ask the front desk for this week's free wi-fi password.

    Renovations were surprisingly good. Sad to see some of the big trees go though. Eat a brat, drink a pitcher or three, and enjoy.

    Next time you go, look around you and pick up two pieces of trash (and throw it away). If we all did this, it would look so much better.
