Campus Life

Experience Life as a Blugold

When you become a Blugold, campus becomes your home away from home. You’ll probably find a favorite place to study or grab a snack. You’ll find friendship where you least expect it. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in organizations, activities and events. This is what campus life is all about.

An Active Campus Year-Round

It's a fact that nearly 70% of students stay on campus on the weekends, and a large number of students stick around during the summer, too. An active campus year-round means there's always something happening at UW-Eau Claire.

Get involved

Our students say getting involved is the most important thing you can do as a freshman. Some of your best résumé material could come from being in a club or service group and so might some of your best friends. Jump in and try something new.
