My experience at UWEC has not been a normal one due to covid but it has been an okay experience. The professor are okay. there are some good ones and there are some not good ones. I feel that they are stingy about money and don't like to give returns. It is a very liberal school and if that is not your thing do not go here. Some of the students are insane about it and I feel it can get out of hand at times. The dorms need updating and the food is not the best.
my online learning experience has been good. My father in law passed this semester and my teachers were very forgiving and gave me a day off and gave me extensions. The work can get kind of repetitive and as a nursing student having online labs does not give me the full experience.
Online classes were difficult. Not many people showing cameras and professors seemed to not always know what they were doing.
Eau Claire has really great education. The professors really care about their students. The social aspect on the other hand can be a little difficult. This year was especially hard for me with the pandemic. I found it hard to make friends and thought people were a little bit cliquey. I’m planning on transferring next semester.
Almost all of my classes have been online. The experience has been great and the platforms have performed extremely well.
The online courses are fine other than some professors don't give you a 15 minute break when they are supposed to. The workload for the classes are a lot more when is it online.
I am a student of color and I have been targeted more than once and the school does nothing about it.
Online classes are fine. Most are ones that you complete at your own pace with a few end-of-the-week deadlines. Professors are usually flexible and are willing to help you out.
Eau Claire is a great school for music! The choir staff is incredible and gives you the tools you will need to succeed in your career.
I have a Perkins loan through the campus. I was diagnosed with cancer in 2020, so I filed for a loan forbearance. That wasn't hard. Email dated in Aug 2020 stated payments would begin following year. I thought no problem. Waited for an invoice, never received anything and frankly forgot while paying medical bills. That is, until they called me for a "courtesy call" to tell me in 2 months past due, with a payment that's now tripled with interest and fees. And they won't do anything to work with me- because "you should have remembered from August [6 months ago]" and I cannot continue classes, get grades, or file for a different college until it's balance is paid. Beware. The college looks beautiful but they're swimming in debt and they go for blood on their students because of it.
Every professor has had their own specific approach on online learning and I have had both good and bad experiences. I think that having classes that meet in zoom during specific class times allows student to interact with professors and other students on campus which helps create connections. Some teachers prefer not to do specific meeting times and although this has allowed me to have a flexible schedule for my job, it makes it harder to keep up with the course work because there is no given schedule.
This college has a really gorgeous campus and a lot of fun opportunities that include floating down the river, a rock climbing course and beach volleyball among other things! Although I wish that there was more diversity throughout the campus, there are a lot of really amazing opportunities for leadership in diversity and equity clubs, along with other clubs and opportunities to help be apart of social change. The intramural clubs and sports have been really fun and UWEC has found a safe way for students to be involved in sports and activities during the global pandemic. I am a biochemistry major on a pre-med route and I have also been able to be a part of a lot of Pre-medicine preparation clubs and meetings, which have been very helpful in regards of what classes to take and where to volunteer to help me get to medical school.
I think that the online experience has been different for everyone especially the teachers having to adapted their class online. However the online classes did enough to help me pass the class but not excel with the material like I had hoped to do. After this first semester online, I do believe it will get better with time and experience.
Pretty Easy, takes a bit to get used to but in the end was sufficient. .
The University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire has given me so many opportunities towards my education and my major. It provided me with helpful resources to get involved in the community. The only change that I would make about this university is the diversity, which I know is something that can only help itself. The university should do more to protect the diverse students and do more for them, as they don't get equal attention as other students.
My online with the university has been average. My first and second semester I had mostly in person and hybrid classes. Overall with my online experiences, it has been successful. The platform they us eis very helpful and is very easy to navigate.
