University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
I made a lot of friends and got a great education. The faculty is the best and is really there to teach students. There are a lot of clubs and organizations to get involved with. I liked the size of the school and that the dorms are mostly small but it is in a very small town.
The UW-La Crosse was a good experience for me although I did not graduate for personal reasons. My best advice is to get involved and stick with it. Don't give up, you will never have regrets for toughing it out, but you will if you don't finish. I liked UW-La Crosse because it was a relatively small environment, but part of a large well respected educational organization
La Crosse was one of the best decisions I've ever Made. Coming from Hawaii, I didn't know anyone, but the students and staff were all very kind and supportive. Professors got to know their students and it made me feel valued.
Its unrealistically expensive. I was able to receive help from family and I will still be in debt for at least 3 years, and that's only because I was able to find a job immediately after graduation. For many schools, books are a ridiculous expense. The university I graduated from offered a program for textbook rental that was included in tuition, however some schools require students to pay for books, which can be upwards of $400 a semester - another cost that is unrealistic for students. However school and a good education is very important. You can't not get a degree if you want a good job. Its also important for society that we have an educated populace. But there are many ways in which it is flawed, including the way tenure works. I had some great teachers, and I had some really, really awful ones. Despite several complaints and outcry from the student body, bad teachers are rarely disciplined or forced to change their methods. Just because someone is smart, doesn't mean they're a good teacher.
La Crosse did a great job with the education program. The classes were small and there was a lot of opportunity to get up in front of a classroom.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at UWL. The psychology faculty are friendly, involved, and engaging.
