University of Wisconsin Colleges Reviews

I attended the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County, one of the campuses that makes up the current UW Colleges system. Being a small two-year university, class sizes have been small, so my experience with professors has been much more personal and therefore, I believe, beneficial to me as a student than what I would have (and will) experience at a larger college. However, because enrollment numbers are so modest, the opportunity for involvement simply does not exist on the same scale it does on 4-year campuses; there are very few clubs, and those that the college does have don't boast many members. These are the primary reasons I rate my experience at UW-Colleges at three stars out of five: great learning environment, poor student involvement opportunities.

As a college freshman I have found the University of Wisconsin College system to be very beneficial. The University has a very good student to faculty ration. Its very easy to get one on one time with the instructors which makes it a friendly environment. Although it is a smaller campus it still offers great amenities and student activities. Compared to a larger campus I feel as if it is better for students from an academic stand point. Even though it offers a better academic environment, the student life isn't as it would be if attending a larger University. However, no party time give students more study time. I like the relationships that are made at the University of Wisconsin Colleges and I look forward to my success as I progress through their system.
University of Wisconsin Barron County, Rice Lake is a small University located in a smaller Northern Wisconsin town. All the campus buildings are located close to each other and campus housing is located within walking distance of the entire campus. The class sizes are small so you have good contact with your professors and excellent feedback. You have good choices for majors and undergraduate requirements. The campus offers a small cafeteria on site. The University offers a variety of competitive team athletics. I recommend this campus as a stepping stone to your career.
