Our athletes bring their best
Blugolds play hard … and they work even harder! UW-Eau Claire is a member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, which consists of eight UW System schools. Chances are good you've sat next to an athlete in one or more of your classes; on top of all the extra time spent in practice for their teams, our athletes have carried an average GPA of 3.00 for thirteen consecutive years.

Our fans bring the joy
Anyone who knows Eau Claire knows the spirit of community that flows through our city like the beautiful Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers. That community reaches a confluence on the campus of UW-Eau Claire, where students from across the country and around the world come together to gain new experiences, to study, to learn and, not least of all, to have fun!
You'll witness that spirit in person when you attend a UWEC sporting event. In the 2016-17 school year, total fan attendance for all ticketed sporting events was more than 38,000, and the average attendance for each ticketed event was nearly 550.
