Overall this is school provides an excellent education for the price. All of the programs have very good faculty. If you go into the college of business, you will probably find that a lot of the students in the business core courses are below average students. It depends on the program you are in but it gets kind of annoying. Once you get done with those courses though things get better. Eau Claire is an okay town. Not a whole lot to do but party. I've tried to find other things but fishing and drinking is about it. At least it is only 1.5 hrs. from Minneapolis.
Generally the faculty is very willing to help, and student orientated, not research orientated. Learning at least in my department tends to be practical, skills-based (not lecture based) and hands on. People ar every friendly here and there's always a great party for those who party, and there's always a movie night or random activity for those who don't. The city itself is progressive but not exactly student orientated, so downtown is not the place where students go for a night out, it's usually the bars or the mall.
It's a pretty good school. The city of eau claire is pretty shitty, but it does have a mall and some stuff to do. The university itself is very good accdemically in pretty much all of its programs. The student body is a bunch of drunks. Most of the kids are pretty cool. There are almost always a ton of parties but they are never usually very big. If your 21 or have a fake its a great place because of water street(right off campus that has like 15 bars). Overall, eau claire has a good mix of academics and social life.
