The thing that attracted me to UW-Eau Claire was the friendly people and the campus. It's absolutely gorgeous when it's not under construction. There is a bookstore where you can rent many of your textbooks, but sometimes you may have to pay depending on the classes you take. We also have a great amount of organizations to get involved with. The people here are great and there's much to explore in the city of Eau Claire. One thing that is important to know is the parking is terrible on campus and also there is a shortage of housing. Only freshmen and transfer students can stay in the dorms because many people go to this school! Other than that, I'm satisfied with my college choice so far!

UW Eau Claire is a very liberal arts school that focuses highly on diversity and acceptance of all people whether it is gender, sexual orientation, race, religious beliefs and so on. The university strongly encourages all students to speak their minds and make the best that they can out of everything that they are given. There are a few individuals in administration that have been problematic in the last few years, but are fortunately on their way out. I'm excited to see what the new image of admin looks like!
There are a plethora of resources and activities that are available to UWEC students both on and off campus. Eau Claire is a city that likes to make a fit for everyone!
I love my experience at UWEC so far! When I was struggling with my major Freshman year, I was able to take advantage of resources that the University provides to explore different career ideas. This helped me choose a better path for myself and I couldn't be happier! I've also had the opportunity to take some interesting courses that have taught me more about the LGBT community, which will help me to be a more inclusive and understanding employee in the future. I was also able to take advantage of the study abroad program that UWEC offers and had an incredible experience! The only complaint that I have is that the dorms were tiny, outdated and very expensive for what you get, but I only lived in them Freshman year and now live off-campus.
