UW-La Crosse is an amazing school! I am so proud to be an Eagle, and I can not wait to graduate and become a part of the alum community! The campus is beautiful, and the professors are very knowledgeable and always helpful. I definitely believe that I am getting a quality education from this school. The city of La Crosse also has a spectacular party scene! With 3 colleges in the area, there is no shortage of college aged individuals to bond, and build relationships with! The only down side to attending this school is that the winters can be a little unbearable at times. Other than that, I would highly recommend this school to anyone who may be interested!

UW-L has provided me with many opportunities on campus! I am involved with a lot of things, such as:
1. Student Support Services -Student Leadership Council
2. Office of Multicultural Student Services
3. Residence Life - Drake Hall Front Desk Assistant and Eagle Guide for New Student Orientation
4. Murphy Learning Center - Front Desk Assistant and Web Editor
5. LeaderShape National Institute.
These are all things I have and still currently participating in.
I love how easy it is to get involved with different clubs and organizations on campus. I also appreciate how nice and willing-to-help the professors are here. I am definitely pushed here academically, so I like how I am not only learning new things, but being challenged to do even better than I have before here through the rigorous coursework. The campus is also under construction in some areas, so it's nice to see how they are constantly making our campus a better place!
