University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Reviews
My time at UWEC was the best of my life! There is not very much room in the dorms, and it is mostly freshman and sophomores who live on campus but it is a great place to meet new people and friends. There are plenty of off campus options that students can rent, close enough to walk to campus! Class and professors are great! I was in the marching band, that was a great experience. I highly recommend joining clubs. Lots of fun bars for the 21+ crowd, be careful for underage and house parties, I've heard the police have cracked down a lot more in recent years. The campus is beautiful and the town of Eau Claire has such a great atmosphere. Overall it is a great place to go to school for four years! I miss it!
I like that the University of Wisconsin Eau-Claire has a very welcoming atmosphere. They are very accepting of different kinds of people. They also have a great disability office that really helped me with my disability! Most of the professors are extremely helpful and almost always willing to help, my math professor would stay with me every Friday and help me when I was struggling in her class.
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!
