UW Eau Claire is a great smaller sized school with many smaller class sizes that give you the opportunity for more one-on-one time with professors, who mostly happen to be very nice and accommodating people by the way. The campus is mostly all in one area and easy to get from point A to point B quickly. There multiple new buildings including Davies which is a very nice cafeteria/store/restaurant/general meeting place. Safety is not even something on your mind around this campus, everyone is super nice and police maintain a comforting presence. Overall, a pretty good school!
Review University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire
The minute I stepped on the campus I was in love. Every building has its own character, and everyone had a positive attitude. Great class sizes, helpful tutoring opportunities, and the teachers are always there to help you! I've talked to several people who go to this school (currently attending, and alumni) and no one had a bad thing to say!
The small-town atmosphere and compact school layout make UW-Eau Claire a very welcoming experience. Teachers and students alike are generally friendly and willing to help, and so far class experience has been positive. The school offers good wifi and printing services, as well as very helpful tech services. There's really not much to complain about!
