Many ways to get involved

At UW-Eau Claire, the academic focus is on giving students a well-rounded education. At the same time, the personal focus is on giving students a breadth of life experiences that build confident, informed, and curious citizens of the world.

How do we do this? We start with the talents and knowledge of world-class faculty who present rigorous courses, creating a thirst for discovery. Then we add just the right blend of challenging, eye-opening, and fun opportunities outside of the classroom to encourage growth as students, scholars, global citizens, and professionals. 

From a robust undergraduate research program to student organizations, study abroad, cultural immersion and internships that bridge the gap to a career, Blugolds have exciting options for high-impact experiences.
