University of Wisconsin - La Crosse is one of the best UW schools in my opinion. It is the perfect classroom size, so that you can get a more individualized learning experience. The University of Wisconsin -La Crosse is also located in the most ideal place. It isn't located in a huge city or a small town. It's a beautiful city that has many fun activities to do year round to always keep you occupied. The environment in La Crosse makes you feel welcomed and safe all the time. Everyone is happy for you to be there and wants you to experience the amazing parts of La Crosse with them.
I have not formed an opinion yet. I start my first class in June.
University of Wisconsin Colleges is a good school. The campus as well as the class sizes are small which make the professors easily accessible. On top of that, the tuition is a lot cheaper than most colleges in the area which is incredibly helpful as well!
My time at UW Rock County was well worth it. I received an associate degree for completing my generals, which is something I would not have been able to obtain if I had gone right to a 4-year college. I only owe about the cost of one year at a 4-year UW campus for two whole years at UW Colleges campus. Living at home and commuting allowed me to save a lot. My problems with the University of Wisconsin Colleges are; that I was screwed over because of the financials being in Madison, meaning, I received $1250 in scholarships which was then subtracted from the $1415 in subsidized loans that I could take. So, I got $165 in subsidized loans my first year, $82.50 a semester and the rest were unsubsidized, so it is already accruing interest. So technically UW Colleges owe me approximately $1400 ($1250+accrued interest). And, after two years and 62 credits plus a cumulative GPA of 3.4, my degree was denied three weeks after my academic appeal was granted. I had to file an academic appeal for one natural science credit because I had 7 out of the 8 needed credits. The UW Colleges Solutions Center eventually fixed that issue. Other than the UW Colleges system mishaps, attending a 2-year campus and the transferring to a 4-year was one of the best financial and academic decisions I have made thus far.

If I were able to give my high school self advice, I would tell myself to stay on the path I followed and keep working hard to acheive my dreams. I had no difficulty adjusting to college because I have always been a grounded and highly motivated student.
I've known that I wanted to be a veterinarian for my entire life. I vividly remember "spaying and neutering" my stuffed animals as a toddler. As I've grown older, that dream has only grown stronger. The more experience I obtain with animals, the more working with them feels like my destiny.
I just completed my first semester of college, earning remarkable grades along the way. I would definitely tell my younger self to keep working toward my goals even when it seems overwhelming because it really does pay off in the end.
The biology professors are very willing to help you learn and succeed and make themselves readily available to students.
I am only boastful when I express how I excell in chemistry class.
I would have benifited greatly had I been more aware of the financial aid process for school. That knowledge would have given me much less stress.
this school is the very enjoyable and very student oriented, however due to its small size there are times when the staffing isn't vailable to have the recousrces vailable to the students. like the library closes early on fridays.
University of Wisconsin Sauk County Baraboo is best known for providing an enviornment that mimics private schools giving you small classes and allowing you to visit with the professors and get the help you need without having to set an appointment or worry about how much time you have to get the information you need. This also allows you to establish relationships with the faculty and be known on a first name basis. When you attend a larger school, you miss out on that opprtunity.
My classmates all seem like me, students just starting their higher education later in life, but fairly educated already.
This school was the only one I considered. My only other option was a technical college and my transfer opportunities to a four year university were infinitely better at the two year university.
The worst thing about my school is the teachers, some are accredited and very knowledible and you can believe them, others seem as though they are a substitute teacher in high school who was an ex marine and doesnt know anything about the subject. Last year in my ENG101 my professor backed out at the last moment and was replaced by an old High School teacher who had been retired for 20 years, easy class but i did not feel as though i learned a great deal.
I wish there were more upper-level math and physics courses. The lack of higher level courses in these areas makes it hard for students majoring in these areas to stay at the campus long.
Anyone who is not serious about working hard in the situation they are in. Most of the people who go to my school are there to save money, but that doesn't mean that they can't make the most of the school and excel academically.
