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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my first year at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse was below average. Having my first year away from home was extremely difficult as I am close with my family and was further weakened by the lack of compassion the RA and advisers held for their students. It was quite the disappointment to be told directly from your Residential Assistant that they genuinely only cared for the position as a way of receiving discounted tuition or housing. The extreme lack of compassion and interest my RA had in the success of my dorm mates and I was extremely disheartening and made it difficult to have the support I needed in order to be emotionally, physically, and academically successful and first year campus life is critical to success. However, I am extremely grateful for the level and amount of academic programs that are available to students. I chose to attend UW-La Crosse due to their strong science and medical programs and was not disappointed; I have so far been provided with the professors and information I require in order to expand my scientific and medical knowledge that is necessary to complete my goal of entering the field of forensic pathology!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin La Crosse is a very highly ranked school in the state of Wisconsin. The academics are great, and the professors are very accessible, and have flexible office hours. There are a lot of clubs and organizations to get involved with on campus and you can even make your own club if you choose to which is very unique. The university is known for their sports medicine program, and their graduate program for this area of study are phenomenal. Although the university is a great place, it does have some downfalls. The diversity here on campus is not very good and a lot of time people of color, ad underrepresented groups of students get overlooked and do not feel very safe on campus. During elections and voting in general the campus gets kind of hostile and can make it hard for students and some even feel intimated. I think the biggest area that the school could improve on is the life of students in the residence halls. It is great to be able to meet people in your dorm halls, but when there are issues, they should be handled in the best way possible which does not always happen here. Overall, the university of Wisconsin La Crosse is not all bad, and it is a great place to receive an education from. Even though there are something on campus that need to be changed, I would recommend this school for people who are looking for a high-quality education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love UW- La Crosse. The area is beautiful, and there is so much to do, whether its Pettibone Beach, the Bluffs, or any other part of LAX. The Professors are all so nice and very approachable, and the classes aren't too hard either! The campus is the perfect size for someone who doesn't love big schools, and the science department has an amazing building for labs with awesome new equipment!

It's a great campus, very welcoming and inclusive, and has a lot of good resources if you need help academically, related to mental health, or otherwise. The scenery is great, and La Crosse has a ton of great shops and restaurants within walking distance. Overall, it's a great environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first was looking at colleges to attend I didn't really know what I was looking for. I didn't have an "ah-haa" moment, but this campus made me feel at home. I enjoyed the outdoorsy and athletic atmosphere. I also appreciate the challenges my classes have given me. My time in the dorms was in Eagle Hall, one of the newer ones, so I feel very privileged in saying I had an amazing experience making friend's that first year. Overall, I would encourage future students to take a peek, especially if they are science-minded.
