I am currently a music theater major at UW La Crosse, but I'm planning to transfer because I want to get a degree in visual arts instead, and the art department here is extremely limited. It's nothing to do with not liking the Theater program, it's just me changing my mind about life. So here's the good and bad. Good: As far as Theater at UW La Crosse goes, the faculty is excellent! They care about you as a person, and they try to teach you things that you will be of use to you in the future. Our music instructors are awesome as well. They have real-life experience and want to help you grow as a musician. Some people criticize because it isn't a difficult program to get in to. Yes, there are some people who are lackluster performers, but there are others who are simply incredible. It really comes down to the old cliche, "You get out of it what you put into it." If you work hard here, you can be great. If you don't, then you'll just be average. Classmates here, at least in theater, are friendly and willing to accept anyone. We look out for each other. Bad: I rated this university low in social life, but maybe that's because I'm one to party. I guess there is definitely a lot of night life here if you like beer and house parties. Living in the dorms is a nightmare. People scream and run around like headless chickens while you're trying to sleep, and they stand around in the halls drunk. Not cool with me. I want to come home to some place calm after working my ass off performing, but that's impossible on a Saturday night. My neighbors are completely immature and inconsiderate. Hopefully if you live in the dorms, you have a quiet floor or you live in Eagle Hall. It's amazing in there. One last thing: it's hard to rate the academics of the university as a whole, because some classes are fun and challenging, and others are a complete waste of time. From what I've heard and experienced, I'd say general education courses are terrible because no one wants to be there, but courses for your major are fun.
