What is your overall opinion of this school?

UWL quickly becomes your home. There is a club for just about anything you could ever be interested in, and if there's not, you can start one. I was definitely nervous coming to school because I didn't know anybody there, but everywhere you go there are genuinely kind people. The staff at UWL are amazing and they will do everything they can to help you be successful. In addition, the city of La Crosse is beautiful and there are always things to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the atmosphere of the school and the faculty is always very welcoming and helpful. There are many tutoring opportunities if you need extra help. The "outside of school" activities are enjoyable, and there is a lot to do on campus, as well as off-campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UWL's school motto isn't "mens corpusque" for no reason. The environment is very active and there are tons of activities to wallow yourself in, it all depends on what your interests are and if you have an open mind. Some of the buildings, like Morris and some traditional dorms probably need an upgrade soon but it's nothing terrible. Don't expect a 5 star restaurant, either. But again, you'll live and build up an immune system all the while.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UW- La Crosse. When I was a junior in high school I visited 3 other colleges along with UWL but none of the others quite stood out like UWL did. Not only is the campus open and welcoming, but the town is safe and so beautiful. Located between the Mississippi River and some amazing bluffs such as Grandad Bluff, there is always something fun to do! We go rollerblading, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, ice skating, snowshoeing, rock climbing, and so much more! The campus offers a huge variety of activities as well from drag shows to DIY projects. The Recreation Eagle Center on campus is free for students to use for working out, playing table tennis, and indoor rock climbing. It is home to 7 basketball courts, 3 racquetball courts, and aerobics room for group fitness classes, a weight room that also has a turf floor in it and the best staff you'll ever meet! The NEW Student Union contains a movie theatre where on campus organizations host free movie nights for students. There are 8+ different places to eat on campus and in the student union! We also have a brand new science center, hosting multiple Biology, Chemistry, and Anatomy Labs with all the latest technologies! UWL is a place that nobody would ever regret going to!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am completely satisfied with the University thus far. I am currently studying to be a Literacy Specialist while working full time as a social studies teacher. My professors and my cohort have been completely understanding and helpful throughout the entire process to this point. I would strongly recommend this program to other educators seeking additional licensure.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a perfect middle-man school with plenty of opportunities for people looking to further their education in a way that allows for outside activities and active learning in the real world. La Crosse has a very safe and welcoming environment that allows for students to get the most out of their experience in a positive way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school in terms of academics. The residence halls are pretty good, with a few touch up needed here or there. On-campus food is alright; however, it could be way better. The food is good for the first month or so but after a while it just feels like you are eating the same thing over and over. The biggest problem for me is the school atmosphere for people of color and LGBTQ; it feels a little intimidating and like if you don't fit the "cookie cutter" look then you are an outsider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have really enjoyed my time at UW-La Crosse. This was my second choice behind Madison, which I was also accepted to, but the financial cost was just too much for me. I really found the happy medium here at UWL. Academically, I have been very impressed by my professors, and I am so grateful for their guidance and intelligence. However, I do think the liberal arts, specifically the fields outside of business and economics, are suffering for funding and appreciation. Overall, I am still pleased by the quality of my education, and as a non-traditional student, this was (and is) the most important part of my college experience. Additionally, I do think the university places way too much emphasis on sports culture, especially since we're a division-3 institution. However, it still gives incoming students and sports-passionate people the opportunity to participate in the activities that are important to them. I also think the campus leaders could stand to be bigger advocates for the students as well, as the La Crosse city government is not kind to students and student-frequented areas. Again, I am overall satisfied with my time here at UWL. There is a good balance for me here between cost of living, income, and cost of my education. I would definitely recommend it to other students looking for a university that is incredibly flexible socially and diverse academically.
