Madison Hartup

Undergraduate Academic Advisor

Q: Where did you grow up?

I spent most of my childhood in Baraboo, WI–near beautiful Devil’s Lake state park.

Q: Where did you go to college/grad school and what was your major(s)?

I’m UW-Madison badger two times over! I received a BA in East Asian Studies, and a MS in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis, specialized in Global Higher Education. 

Q: What do you like to do for fun? 

I love cooking and baking–my browned butter chocolate chip cookies are always a hit. I also enjoy weightlifting, biking, reading mystery novels, and cuddling my pet cat. I am a big nerd for DnD and Renaissance Faires!

Q: What is your favorite book or movie right now?

A recent read was Greymist Fair by Francesca Zappia–a clever, slightly spooky take on several classic fairy tales. My favorite movie series of all time is the Lord of the Rings trilogy. 

Q: What’s a favorite trip or vacation you’ve been on?

Traveling to Busan, South Korea with friends. All of the amazing food…and the ocean! As a Midwesterner, being by the sea always feels a bit magical.
