You may have heard that visiting campus is the best way to know if it is the right fit for you — we agree! But we also understand that not everyone is looking for the same thing on their visit. That's why we have designed a variety of visit options with you in mind. Choose from one of our many visit options including a general campus visit, an academic program visit, a transfer student visit or even a live virtual session.

We look forward to connecting with your group, either in person or virtually! We ask for at least three weeks’ notice for a group visit, as it will allow us to personalize the visit based on your request. Register your high school or organization for a group visit.
I chose UWEC because it represented everything I wanted in a university. The size is great, the campus is clearly defined, and it is all very aesthetically pleasing. Beyond that, there is a real sense of community on campus and in the city. I couldn't find all these things anywhere else I looked, so it had to be UWEC!
