What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
Be outgoing! Many people describe college as the best years of their life, therefore you need to make the most out of your time here and enjoy it while you can.
Karlissa from Janesville, WI
Get involved! LaCrosse is a friendly place to be, so get out there, try different activities and bond with some of the great students here. Oh, and do not be afraid to ask for help, you will get it, with no judgement, and become better because of it.
Tara from Reedsburg, WI
I recommend living in the freshman dorms because that is where it is the easiest place to meet new people. Join clubs and use the Outdoor Connection Center to your advantage. The center rents rollerblades, tents, cross country skis and basically anything you are looking for to students for a low fee. It is a great way to stay busy especially in the winter when it gets dark early. Get involved in activities because La Crosse is a great place and when you are involved that is where you get the most opportunities to see that.
Kaitlyn from La Crosse, WI
Do college classes in high school. By doing this you will come in with credits that will allow you to register for classes at an earlier date. Also get involved it will make your experience greater.
Madelinn from Apple Valley, MN
Apply for housing early because there is a little shortage of dorm space until the new dorms are built. If you apply late you may end up with an extra person in your room. It isn't that bad if you end up in overflow housing though. I lived with it all first semester and it really isn't that bad. Plus you meet more people this way!
Jennifer from Rolling Meadows, IL
These are the best four years of your life, so have a good time, but don't forget that you're most likely coming here for an education. UW-L is a ton of fun, but have a battle plan on how to balance your social life with your priorities in college.
Alex from LA Crosse, WI
Prospective students don't need to be worried about planning out their entire four years from the get go. La Crosse has so many different programs that are successful its best to come in with an open mind and explore what you're really interested in. Tuition is affordable enough that if you have to spend an extra semester because you changed majors or studied abroad, it's not going to hit the piggy bank too hard; take your time and enjoy learning while you can.
Jaclyn from Pewaukee, WI
La Crosse is a great school for anybody looking to further their education and have a great experience while doing so.
Mercedes from Montello, WI
Get involved! And go meet people right away, rather than chatting with your friends on Facebook all the time. Also, try to get along with your roommate, even if their interests are way different than yours. But don't expect your roommate to be your new best friend (unless you're already roomming with a friend). I tried-- but my roommate didn't like me as much as I thought and we ended up switching rooms (it turned out better that way, though, because I ended up rooming with a friend). Oh, and you will spend a lot of money at Kwik Trip and Wal-Mart buying food for yourself. Campus food is good, but you'll get sick of it (and Whitney Center!) after awhile.
Kathryn
If your looking into La Crosse, come visit because once your here and experience it yourself you will definitely know it is right for you.
