Student & Graduate Reviews

Kathryn Frazier - 8/3/2016
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2013
"The Elementary Education program at UWL is phenomenal. The professors have incredible teaching experiences and the ability to share those with students in an effective manner. They care about the well being of each teacher candidate, and the educator that they will become. UWL prepares teacher candidates for their role as educators with in classrom experiences early and often, as well as classes that teach fundamentals and prepare educators for exams like the PRAXIS and FORT. I am so thankful for the connections that I made with educators and colleagues alike through UWL and would not trade that experience for anything."

Inspirational professors and relevant classes! - 7/9/2016
Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2012
"I loved my time at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. I had ideal class sizes, and teachers who were truly invested in their subject areas and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with students. One of the best parts of my undergraduate career was the time I spend abroad in Lima, Peru. This opportunity opened my eyes to another culture and multiplied my desire to continue learning language and continue increasing my cultural intelligence. The Spanish classes I completed were taught almost 100% in Spanish which is ideal for truly becoming fluent and having a functional level of the language. The level of Spanish I had when I graduated allowed me to take jobs where I interpreted and translated for my employers. The only regret I have is that I did not feel the academic advisors were easily accessible and available to meet and discuss courses. Pairing my Spanish degree with another subject area I am passionate about, such as psychology, would have been of great value to me now as a graduate."

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2012
"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."

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 1979
"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."

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."
