What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
UWS has a small community feel to it. Its a great place to go to feel welcome and secure! There are small class sizes and the teachers really connect with you!
Nicole from Superior, WI
UW-Superior was the best fit for me. I made great friends, studied abroad, was on the soccer team, a member of the choir and leader of an organization. I was able to do everything here.
Transfer from Southern MN
University has a smaller student enrollment then most schools which helps making friends and knowing your professors easier. In small classroom sizes, questions get answered by teachers instantly. There are also plenty of programs to get involved in, to help in meeting people.

High quality educational experience, wonderful instructors, superior assistance from all staff members
