    Tranferred here from UW-Madison. I still feel like I am getting the same high quality education for way less money!

    Tuition will always be on the rise, but overall the prices is not bad here. Off campus housing is cheap, though low-quality, students get a fair amount of perks, access to professors, smallish class sizes, mostly knowledgeable professors.

    I think this school is good for the price. It's a smaller school but seems to have a lot to offer. They're always working to make it a better place too. I think tuition is pretty reasonable.

    You definitely get your money's worth here at UW-Eau Claire. The staff wants you to succeed. With the price of dorms and foods and a rental textbook option you can sell back books you also bought. You won't be disappointed.
