Enjoy every moment

Blugolds play hard — and they work even harder. UW-Eau Claire is a member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC), which consists of eight UW System schools. Chances are good you've sat next to an athlete in one or more of your classes; on top of all the extra time spent in practice for their teams, our athletes have carried an average GPA of 3.00 for thirteen consecutive years.

Not only are Blugolds consistently named among the best conference scholar-athletes, they are also nationally recognized for their participation in community service and locally known for bringing their best to every game, match, meet and round.

The greatest honor I’ve had was being able to play for the Blugolds football team. I made lifetime friends, had amazing coaches and the amazing memories I made will stick with me forever. It meant a lot to be around those guys every day enjoying the college experience as student-athletes together. UWEC gave me memories and friendships I will never forget. It feels great to know I will be a Blugold forever.
