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!
Abby - Elementary Education
"I love being a Blugold because from the minute I started my freshman year, the Eau Claire campus felt like home! The sense of community and family I get from being a Blugold is something I want for other students. The professors here at UWEC want students to succeed, and I have felt supported and challenged to be the best student I can be. There are so many opportunities being a Blugold has to offer, and I have taken full advantage of them--studying abroad, becoming an RA, volunteering as a campus ambassador, being a part of NRHH...just to name a few. Being a Blugold brings out the best in me, and I love being a part the UWEC community!"
Cailyn - Kinesiology + Pre-Physical Therapy
"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."
Jens - Psychology + Philosophy
"Being a Blugold to me means loving every step of your academic journey."
Julie - Accounting + Finance
"What being a Blugold means to me is a rewarding sense of pride and accomplishment. Here at UWEC we are encouraged to pursue multiple passions, and as a Blugold, I am able to be an Accounting Major [AND] an Admissions Office Intern."
Lauren - Biochemistry + Molecular Biology
"Being a Blugold is so much more than just a title. It means having the chance to grow and challenge yourself every day. Students are provided with countless opportunities and surrounded by a supportive community which allows us to achieve what we've always dreamt of. UW-Eau Claire has inspired me to take my knowledge and apply it to my life beyond the campus."
Maggie - Organizational Communication + Marketing
"Being a Blugold means that I can learn, grow, and explore exactly who I want to be! I can take on new opportunities and figure out my own strengths and weaknesses. I can be a marketing minor and I can explore nature. I can do research and facilitate a leadership camp! The possibilities are endless and that's what being a Blugold means to me!"
Monique - Accounting + Finance
"Becoming a Blugold has opened up so many doors for me. I was nervous about going to college and being on my own, but UWEC made me feel right at home. Everyone is friendly and wants to see you flourish. There are so many great opportunities that UWEC offers for all of its students to make sure you graduate with everything you need to become a successful person."
Tim - Math Education
"I believe that being a Blugold is different for everyone, and that’s what makes it so great. Knowing you don’t have to be a cookie cutter fit [AND] can just BE YOURSELF is the most comforting family you can be a part of. Joining a community that not only wants to learn but can show you how to shine just the way you are is what it means for me. With countless opportunities and relationships to offer, the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire has taught me to never doubt myself, but to be inspired to find what good I can raise from within. But, as we are all so very different, never be afraid to come find out what being a Blugold can mean for you."
