UW-La Crosse is a great pace to be! The campus is beautiful, and just the right size. Students are very friendly and are always willing to help and answer questions. The professors are also fantastic, they genuinely care about you as a person and especially as a student. Professors are always encouraging and helpful, and they are always available outside of class. I haven't had a professor that I haven't like. The only thing I would change about UWL is the food service. There are not many options, and the options aren't quality food.

If you're dream is to amount to an average life, this is your go to place! My experience at UWL started out well, because I partied like everyone else. When I quit drinking second semester freshman year, I realized the dullness of the campus, and how low energy it was. The reality is, you think you are becoming a greater version of yourself, only to realize that you have a lot of catching up to do. I would heavily suggest looking into a different school, unless you are going to be a D3 Athlete, which you might find fascinating here. (Most people go home on the weekends.)
The professors and other staff are very helpful and kind. I just transferred from a college in Northern Minnesota that was much smaller and more conservative than UWL. I was a bit nervous to attend a larger school with a large party scene, but it happened to be the best decision I ever made! I felt at home right away
