During what time of year is UWEC truly "Wisconsin's Most Beautiful Campus?" Oh this is a tough one! I would have to go with spring, because there are so many flowers that just pop up overnight! The campus is covered with tulips :)
Best place to study: 4th floor of the library! It's nice and quiet, but the occasional whisper is acceptable.
If a friend came to visit, what one thing would you have them eat on campus? The big frosted sugar cookies sold at the coffee shop! Just thinking about them makes my mouth water…
What do you think of our "hill"? ;) Free workout! And it’s the only time that it is acceptable to belt out the song “It’s the Climb” by Miley Cyrus (yes, I have heard someone do this!).
Favorite activity/place off-campus: Rollerblading on the State Trail. It is so beautiful!
What restaurant would you take them to in Eau Claire? Moose Deli! It's right by Phoenix Park and you can take sandwiches to go and have a picnic.
Best class so far: NRSG 368: A group of 8 students had the opportunity to live in Rosebud, SD for 10 days to have a clinical on the reservation there. It was a lot more hands-on than some of the other clinicals offered in Eau Claire, and I got to help deliver 3 babies!
Best professor (and why): Gunnar Larson was my clinical instructor last semester! He took the time to explain each procedure and human condition that I encountered, and I gained a lot of confidence in my nursing skills after working with him for the semester!
Finish the following sentence, "YOU know you're a Blugold when...." you decide to float down the river the day after the ice thaws :)
What's the best way to get the most out of college: GET INVOLVED! It's a chance to define the person you WANT to be.
How would you describe UWEC students in three words? United, dedicated, and educated.
If you could give a specific piece of advice to a freshman on how to LIVE the Eau Claire advantage, what would it be? Get to know the campus! There are a lot of things that wouldn't be discovered without poking around a little! Discover your own personal treasures on campus!
Why you should want to come visit campus: See it to believe it!
