Campus Life

Experience being a Blugold

When you become a Blugold, campus becomes your home away from home. You’ll probably find a favorite place to study or snack to grab. You’ll find friendship where you least expect it. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in organizations, activities and events. This is what campus life is all about.

Blugolds have more fun

While the main reason you’re here may be academics, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun along the way. And by some we mean basically the best times of your life! There’s so much to do that you’ll have a hard time picking where to start.

Blugolds get involved on campus

With the most beautiful campus in the UW System as your backdrop, you will have hundreds of different lanes to explore your interests, settle into college life and make friendships to last a lifetime.

UWEC: where the future is full of possibility

For Jessica Montouri, choosing to explore and get involved at UW-Eau Claire opened countless doors — and led to some of her fondest memories.

“I joined intramural teams, spent extra time on campus and wasn't afraid to speak up to meet new friends and make connections,” she said. “I felt a special sense of freedom to pave my path for the future by having so many opportunities to enjoy myself.” 

The result? A college experience filled with friendships and memories that she will carry with her for life. And while Jessica is excited about her future, she’s going to miss her alma mater. 

“What will I miss most about Eau Claire? Everything. The places I lived, lying in the grass on campus, riding the bus to class, eating lunch in Davies, laughing with my friends, exploring the town, but most importantly, the constant happiness I felt being surrounded by kind people in such a beautiful city I called home for the last four years.”
