University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Reviews
I am currently a Freshman at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. So far, I remain very happy with my decision in this school being where I further my education. I have had great professors that care about their students and I have experienced meaningful courses that are beneficial to myself and my education. Since I am still a Freshman, I still live in the dorms and have not had any problems with the dorm environment, the people I've met and lived with, and the facilitates that come along with living on a college campus. I also really have enjoyed living in this area and definitely recommend for people to look for themselves at everything this area has to offer. I am excited to continue to further my education here!
La Crosse was more than a school to me. For me, it was home. The people in the community contribute to the reason why I feel at home. The bluffs are an incredible and beautiful part of the area, and I see them everyday as I walk to class. There's so much to do outdoors and plenty to do in the school itself. I am part of the swim team and I am so happy to have made the decision to compete in college swimming. La Crosse is also affordable compared to other colleges and isn't too big or small of a campus. I love the people and the atmosphere of the campus and outside of the campus. Go eagles!
Love this school! The campus is very easy to get around. There is a diverse offering of classes/majors. Great opportunities to join groups and clubs. The food in Whitney dining center is average, but there are a lot of other options on campus. As a freshman registering for classes was stressful as some of the required classes for my major were full before my registration period opened up.
