Come back to UW-Eau Claire

We're grateful to the many alumni and friends who have supported the Power of Possible campaign and today's UW-Eau Claire students through gifts of time and resources. We encourage you to come back to campus to see how your support is making a difference. (Watch the video above for a little inspiration!)

As you plan your trip back to campus, consider the following reasons for a return visit:

Not-to-be-missed events

Time your UW-Eau Claire visit around an event that interests you. Follow these links to more information about the many Blugold happenings on campus and in the community:

start ups

Help students prepare for success

We frequently welcome Blugold alumni back to share their expertise with current students. Whether it's a special presentation to students aspiring to enter your career field (like the one above in which Zach Halmstad '04 talked with UW-Eau Claire students about being a successful entrepreneur), or one-to-one connections with students during our Experience U event, you can make a difference for future graduates.

Schofield Chairs

Be a part of Schofield Hall for Blugold generations to come

It's a place all Blugolds have in common. From the very first day that classes were held on our campus, every student who's attended our great university has spent time in Schofield Hall — and in particular, Schofield Auditorium. Learn how you can be a special part of this hallowed place in the life of all Blugolds — past, present and future.

Sonnentag Event and Recreation Complex

New projects promise to transform UW-Eau Claire

Come back now, then come back later once these two projects are up and running! Two recent transformational developments have involved the UW-Eau Claire Foundation and the university in groundbreaking partnerships. These initiatives will result in new facilities to serve both UW-Eau Claire and our surrounding community:

Confluence Arts Center

In two years, UW-Eau Claire and community performing arts groups will take the stage in the new state-of-the-art Confluence Arts Center, thanks to a successful partnership between UW-Eau Claire, its public and private partners, and many generous donors. Learn more.

Sonnentag Event and Recreation Complex

A new large-scale event and recreation complex is being planned to serve both UW-Eau Claire and the local community — made possible by a generous commitment of money and land from UW-Eau Claire alumni John and Carolyn Sonnentag and County Materials CorporationLearn more.
