What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
One of the most beautiful campuses I've ever been on! All the professors are passionate about what they teach and are always willing to go the extra mile to help. Great location- close to shopping, eating, and outdoor activities.
Kate from Madison, WI
Besides being surrounded by natural beauty, UW-Eau Claire also has the perk of being a very accepting place to new students. From the first day I stepped onto campus I felt very welcomed by both the faculty and students alike; it is a very safe environment to live in. If you are looking for a school who values excellence and feels like home, look no further than UW-Eau Claire.
