Campus Ambassadors

Meet our tour guides

Have you noticed the people in striped shirts all over our site? Those are our Campus Ambassadors and they are current students at UWEC who are passionate about this campus and the education they're receiving here. They'll show you around campus, pointing out their favorite study spots, hangouts, and giving you the scoop on the best places to get food on campus. Their intimate knowledge of campus life is the best way to see if UWEC is the right school for you!

Being a Blugold has pushed me to be the best person that I am capable of being. In my time here I have worked harder than ever before and I could not be more proud of what I have accomplished. The most important thing I can say to future students is to leave your comfort zone because that is where you find yourself.

"Being a Blugold goes far beyond giving a fun name to everyone who attends this university. Being a Blugold means having the chance to challenge yourself to grow in all aspects of life by collaborating with incredible faculty, traveling the world with friends, attending study groups in cozy coffee shops, singing your heart out in a choir, and catching up with your roommates over food. Being a Blugold is definitely more than just a title to me. It's been the best experience of my life."

Being a Blugold to me means not only having a wide range of backgrounds and talents but also possessing the desire and drive to immerse myself in new experiences and opportunities.

To me, being a Blugold means family. Everyone I have met is so passionate about their work at UW-Eau Claire–alumni, current students, and faculty alike. It feels wonderful to be a part of an institution that has touched so many!

One of the many things that I value about being a Blugold is the endless amount of opportunities that are available to us as students. This campus really has the ability to inspire people to be the best versions of themselves.

I love being a Blugold because of the many opportunities for growth. Whether its joining an organization, studying abroad, or participating in research, students will always find the opportunity to achieve.


For me UW-Eau Claire is the 'whole package'. Not only is it a place to learn, it's a community where there are unlimited opportunities.


UW-Eau Claire is such a friendly and supportive campus that it allows every student to have meaningful relationships with faculty, other students, and the community. As a Blugold I have learned so much from my professors and other students, and about myself. These relationships and experiences have helped me become who I am today.

To me, being a Blugold means endless opportunities with a great community to support all the adventures and challenges we face.

Since becoming a Blugold I have redefined my take on education, community, and ambition. This campus has allowed me to grow in unique ways that would not have been possible on my own. Being a Blugold means being able to partake in an adventure that enables personal growth!

Blugolds are constantly learning, in and out of the classroom, about themselves and the world around them. UW-Eau Claire helps you discover what you love to do and what defines you, then gives you the tools and opportunities to find a place in the world to make your mark!

I love being a Blugold because Eau Claire has the perfect size campus. I find myself meeting someone new everyday, while still being able to form close relationships with my classmates and professors who genuinely care about my personal growth and success.
