Hugging a prime section of the Chippewa River is the beautiful campus of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, which serves over 10,000 students—primarily at the undergraduate level—and provides 80 majors across four distinct colleges. Most curricula involve a service-learning component that gets students to interact with the surrounding community, and a center devoted to collaborative research promotes interaction with faculty beyond the normal classroom setting. Among other honors and distinctions, the Princeton Review has declared UW-EC to be a top-50 college for “best value,” and the Templeton Foundation marked it as a school that encourages development of personal character. And when it comes to extra-curriculars, music and culture are huge here; four separate bands, various jazz ensembles and almost a dozen vocal ensembles trump nearly every other similar program in the area, and the University Theatre Productions company puts on multiple productions per year as well as a student-directed short play festival. Intramural sports here include basketball, ultimate Frisbee and even a popular year-round bowling league! The University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire asks you: are you ready for a new adventure?
