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!
I have had a grear experience at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire so far! I am going into my junior year and I have met so many great people and have gotten to participate in so many cool experiences including being a hall raiser, being on a hall council, working as a resident assistant in the dorms, becoming a campus ambassador, studying abroad and so much more! UWEC has totally been a home away from home and I have loved being a student!
