Campus Ambassadors

Meet our tour guides

Have you noticed the people in striped shirts all over our site? Those are our Campus Ambassadors and they are current students at UWEC who are passionate about this campus and the education they're receiving here. They'll show you around campus, pointing out their favorite study spots, hangouts, and giving you the scoop on the best places to get food on campus. Their intimate knowledge of campus life is the best way to see if UWEC is the right school for you!


Being a Blugold goes far beyond giving a fun name to everyone who attends this university. Being a Blugold means having the chance to challenge yourself to grow in all aspects of life by collaborating with incredible faculty, traveling the world with friends, attending study groups in cozy coffee shops, singing your heart out in a choir, and catching up with your roommates over food. Being a Blugold is definitely more than just a title to me. It's been the best experience of my life.

Being a Blugold has given me the foundation in which I can aspire to be everything I've ever dreamed I could be. The first time I walked onto the UW-Eau Claire campus, I felt inspired to meet the expectations of college. UWEC not only has encouraged me to meet these expectations, but it makes it possible for myself and my fellow Blugolds to do so. We are provided with endless opportunities and surrounded by a supportive environment that allows us to succeed and achieve our dreams.


To me, being a Blugold means support. The attention, advice, and enthusiasm I have received from our faculty is astounding. The time they have taken with me to better personalize my education is priceless. Thanks to these educators, I know that when I leave this university I will have not only my degree but an entire set of high-impact practices such as internships and research opportunities to lead me forth.


One of the best things about UWEC is its commitment to each student’s success. Thanks to our positive atmosphere, supportive professors, and endless opportunities for growth both in and out of the classroom, we’re able to pursue our passions while preparing to make our mark on the world. UWEC’s dedication to excellence makes being a Blugold hard to beat!


For me UW-Eau Claire is the 'whole package'. Not only is it a place to learn, it's a community where there are unlimited opportunities.


Being a Blugold is more than receiving a well-rounded liberal arts education. Being a Blugold means having the resources, support and encouragement to do things you would have never imagined possible.


I love UW-Eau Claire because it's more than just a campus--it's a place where students have endless opportunities to get involved, grow, and discover their passions. Whether it's research, organizations, on-campus jobs, sports teams, or study abroad, students can find their drive to succeed and become the best version of themselves.


UW-Eau Claire is such a friendly and supportive campus that it allows every student to have meaningful relationships with faculty, other students, and the community. As a Blugold I have learned so much from my professors and other students, and about myself. These relationships and experiences have helped me become who I am today.


To me, being a Blugold means endless opportunities with a great community to support all the adventures and challenges we face.


Being a Blugold for me is waking up on a Monday morning and feeling excited for the week. UWEC has something new to offer every day, allowing for a great community to be made and giving you many opportunities to utilize the power of [AND].


I love being a Blugold because of the community here at Eau Claire. Everyone is welcoming, and it really is my home. There are so many organizations to be involved in and opportunities to make your mark on campus. Because UW-Eau Claire is a liberal arts school, I feel prepared for my life beyond it.


Being a Blugold means so much more to me than just being a student. I feel as if I am part of a community on campus, through relationships that I have built with peers and faculty of the university. This university is able to provide so many opportunities for growth and development to all students. These opportunities are in such a wide array of areas that everyone has a chance to find their own identity on campus.


When I'm asked what it means to be a Blugold, it's simple. It's a place where you can come in crawling and leave flying. "If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
