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 The only complaint that I have is that the dorms were tiny, outdated and very expensive for what you get, but I only lived in them Freshman year and now live off-campus.

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!
The University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire is an amazing college that provides opportunities for all students. I am currently in my 3rd year as a Junior at UWEC, and I can honestly say choosing to attend this university has by far been the best choice I have made so far in life. I have not only grown personally, but also academically.

Since being at UWEC I have been able to accomplish being on the Dean's List, gaining leadership roles on the executive board of two organizations (Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity and Operation Smile Club), and becoming a confident and successful student. UWEC has given me the chance to stand out as an individual. I have been able to create amazing relationships with classmates and professors, and have now been employed as an experienced writing tutor at the Center for Writing Excellence.

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is the perfect place for individuals to find their passion, succeed academically, and gain opportunities of a lifetimes.
