UW-La Crosse is a great pace to be! The campus is beautiful, and just the right size. Students are very friendly and are always willing to help and answer questions. The professors are also fantastic, they genuinely care about you as a person and especially as a student. Professors are always encouraging and helpful, and they are always available outside of class. I haven't had a professor that I haven't like. The only thing I would change about UWL is the food service. There are not many options, and the options aren't quality food.
Review University of Wisconsin - La Crosse
If you're dream is to amount to an average life, this is your go to place! My experience at UWL started out well, because I partied like everyone else. When I quit drinking second semester freshman year, I realized the dullness of the campus, and how low energy it was. The reality is, you think you are becoming a greater version of yourself, only to realize that you have a lot of catching up to do. I would heavily suggest looking into a different school, unless you are going to be a D3 Athlete, which you might find fascinating here. (Most people go home on the weekends.)
The University of Wisconsin La Crosse is very focused on the success of their students. The professors are engaging and personable, it is easy to get in contact with them if you do not understand the material or even have questions about research, internships and job opportunities. Class sizes are generally small which helps with the learning process. The majority of students and staff are exclusive and there are great opportunities on campus to get involved!
