Why UW-Eau Claire?

UW-Eau Claire

Discover your purpose and passion

Prepare to go after your dreams — including the ones you didn't know you had. Blugolds are not defined by one discipline or profession. Instead you're encouraged to embrace your multiple passions. We call this the Power of AND. Many opportunities will help you discover your AND. An experience in another country or culture might make you think differently about the world, or faculty-student collaborative research may allow you to present at a national conference. That friend you met in the dorms or a student org could become a business partner. The possibilities are endless.
