I don't have the full experience yet, as things are just now opening up to their capacity as they were pre covid, but the walkability of the campus and how readily available everything is is just really nice. The dorms are a little older in some halls than others so there have been issues, but there's a bit of independence to it which I think is quite nice. Most professors are very invested in the students' education, and take their part in teaching and lecturing very seriously, again some more than others, but that in and of itself has been a treat!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Apparently, the food in the dining halls has improved since I last ate there, but during the more strict Era of covid policy, the food was absolutely horrible and quite honestly depressing. This Era severely impacted my mental health as it was quite difficult to make friends with everyone told to keep to themselves, there wasn't anything to do really. And with the dorms, maintenance requests are ignored for a while unless it's an ongoing issue. And a lot of things get left ignored for a long time. (Ie: broken dryers, plumbing to the point that the entire hall can't use flushable wipes, garbage disposals in the sink that can't be used, and there's probably more).



UWEC has a beautiful campus with a lot of stuff to do. The faculty is made up of many very intelligent and friendly people.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The older dorms are kind of run-down.

I loved studying at Eau Claire. The people there are nice, the professors know what they're talking about, and the information is current and relevant. There are also a lot of clubs and organizations that you can join to do real things as a student. The only reason that I'm transferring out is because they don't have the major that I want to take. If they did, I would stay in a heartbeat.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dorms are a little old, so there can be some issues with old products. Additionally, it's situated on a hill, so to go to class you have to go down a steep hill, and to come back to the dorms you have to go up. Just keep that in mind.

UWEC is low-key racist and I would not recommend it to POC. A lot of the professors are poor at communication and teaching, and overall the campus isn't really worth it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

-racism -performative -a lot of bad professors -a lot of the first-year dorms suck -bad food



I honestly love this university. The campus feels like home and all of the students are so loving and kind. I have had so much fun in my first semester and a half, and I cannot wait to learn more about Eau Claire and continue my college career at UWEC!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware of the food. Just like every college, this college has questionable food. Don't worry about it too much though, it could be worse. There are not many vegan/vegetarian options though so keep that in mind if you are on a diet.

The students and the friends you make are the best part. I have found various supporting students and professors that have helped immensely to further my degree and make me happier.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food isn't very good and options are limited, but having an on-campus job and being able to live off-campus close to the campus or the bus route helps with that. Plus you get to live with people you like.
