What's the best thing about being a student at UWEC?
You can get involved in WHATEVER YOU WANT! There aren’t many universities that are so committed to helping students excel in the classroom AND providing awesome extracurricular activities. You’re not just a number in the student population at UWEC; you’re an individual treated with respect and encouraged to take on real responsibilities.
Who has been your favorite professor?
It’s so tough to decide; I’ve had so many great professors! I’ll have to call it a tie between Dr. Jan Bednar (Business Communication) and Dr. Maria DaCosta (Economics). Both are incredible individuals who truly care about student learning and growing. Furthermore, Dr. Bednar has been exceptionally helpful in regards to perfecting my resume and professional speaking skills.
What's the best reason to stay up until 2:00am?
Getting rewarded with an 'A' on your paper or exam OR ordering Toppers Pizza and having a Netflix marathon with your roomies!
Where's the best place place to eat on campus?
The Davies Student Center Marketplace! My favorites are the breakfast skillets and apple cinnamon scones from the Blugold Bakery…I’m drooling just thinking about them!
Where's the best place to study?
The best place to study for me is the Blugold Living Room; you definitely hit the jackpot when there’s an open nook with cozy couches. Otherwise, the library is always a popular spot!
Why did you choose UWEC?
I chose UWEC for many reasons: great volleyball program, excellent College of Business, separation of upper and lower campus… plus it just felt like home!
