Overall Rating

The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is a fantastic school. I have enjoyed every minute of my time here. The classes are rigorous and challenging, but well worth the time and effort put in, in the end. Life outside the classroom never contains a dull moment. There are always activities doing on, whether on campus or in the city. I would absolutely recommend attending UW-L to any prospective students.
