UWEC is a very beautiful campus that allows students to take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities it has to offer, from study abroad to student faculty research. It is very easy to get involved with anything that you are interested in, since we have over 250 organizations.
I love the on and off campus environments. Majority of the off campuse housing is located in a 10 x 10 block radius and includes Water Street which cannot be described in words. Great people, highly recommend this school for social life.
Class-wise this isn't bad. But don't even THINK of bringing a car here. You have to either live on campus or within walking distance. Parking permits are hundreds of dollars and not even half the students are guaranteed a spot. On top of that, those without permits (or who can't find spots) are forced to park in the surrounding neighborhood, leading to nearly 3/4 mile walk to school. Think of doing that in -13 wind chill days. Frostbite, anyone?The school is pushing to put more stop signs in the 'parking neighborhood' instead of putting up a freaking parking garage. They also just spent about 30 million dollars on a new student center and they're building a new education center. Both things they did not need. Did I mention to make these new buildings they cut on-campus parking by 40%?
