UW-Eau Claire

Explore worlds unknown

At the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, we redefine the college experience to prepare you for success.

We do not shy away from pushing boundaries. At UW-Eau Claire we rewrite the written, achieve the unthinkable and invent the unimaginable. We believe an open mind not only opens doors but unlocks brilliance and transformation. At the heart of every Blugold is compassion. And when we embrace our differences, change our perspective and work as a team, we are a force to be reckoned with — anything is possible.

We call ourselves Blugolds

Facing stigmas
