3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing can be hit or miss. Some places are really nice, while others are complete garbage pits. The landlords can be great and super helpful, or they can be complete assholes that violate the lease contract whenever they want.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really good places to eat, like Milwaukee Burger and the Acoustic Cafe. There also is the standard Applebees, B-dubs, and other places like that.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Overall campus is pretty chill. The only time that they get ridiculously strict is during finals week. We have "dead hours" during then and it feels like if you cough you will get written up.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not go to parties, but my roommate does. They are hit or miss, but there is always several places to go to Thurs-Sat.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: There is some financial aid available, but there is a high chance that you won't get any. My family is barely scraping by with the amount that we have to pay.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's edible. There are occasionally meals that are highly questionable, but you can easily skip them. The burger place is always open, so there is a nice go-to to constantly have. Einstein's is the best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus can great, depending on which dorm you are in. Some have bigger rooms and others have bigger bathrooms. Any of the Towers buildings are good choices. Putnam and KT are seperated from the rest of the halls, and that is not very desirable. There will be people on the floor that you love, and people that you absolutely cannot stand.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus, so I do not have any first-hand experience with it. I do not think it would be fair for me to rate.

Off-Campus Dining: Good variety of restaurants. Many close by. If live on upper campus can easily walk to some of the restaurants across Clairemont.

3 College Senior

Administration: I think the campus is a great environment. For the most part I think things are fairly lenient. There are times where it frustrates me that so many underage students get away with partying though.

College Senior

Party Scene: I personally do not party at all. It disgusts me when underage people go to parties and get slammed. I prefer to make better life decisions, so I do not know about the party scene.

Scholarships: I personally had a couple issues throughout my time at Eau Claire. Some years went more smoothly than others. Sometimes I had to go to talk to someone in the Financial Aid Office to discuss somethings or ask them to make some changes.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Overall, I did not mind the food on campus. There were times where certain entrees did not appeal to me or there were limited options (particularly on weekends), but I never had absolutely nothing to eat. I've heard people complain about the limited options at times, but I am grateful to have the opportunity to eat what I am offered. I think the best places are on lower campus in Davies. They are more like restaurant-style food locations. You can purchase a meal plan that includes all-access to Hilltop (upper campus) and one meal per day in Davies (lower campus).

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus. I am close to my friends and some relatives who go here. I feel involved with the campus community. I live in Chancellors which is the apartment style residence hall. The environment is more relaxed and flexible. I feel like I have the opportunity to be more independent while still being on campus. It costs more to live here, but you are not required to have a meal plan which saves a ton of money in my opinion. The hall director and RAs are kind and helpful.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus and have not attempted to live off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a good number of places to check out, but they're not open late, even though they're right next to a college.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is fairly lenient, and usually problems are taken care of when reported.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a party person, so this question is not applicable to me.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: With only one bump in the road, it was pretty easy to get financial aid from the school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The caf has unlimited access, but not great food. The marketplace has very limited access, but only above average food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a relatively cheap school, but it delivers an excellent education along with a wonderful social atmosphere within the resident halls.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They send way too much information about housing to all students.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different places, especially for students, to utilize. Personally, my favorite is 1/2 price appetizers at Applebees.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Nothing too extravegant. I haven't, personally, had any issues with any policies

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think introducing the financial aid process and what actually needs to be done right away would be very useful for all students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University of Eau Claire is absolutely amazing. Most of the professors here are very friendly and willing to assist you in your learning endeavors. Since the campus has such a small student population, you feel as if you get to know everybody around you. You make relationships with your professors, and they know you by your name. Also, do not be afraid to ask your professors questions. It makes the learning process that much easier.

Eau Claire is different from many colleges because it feels like a small town inside of a big city. This University is unique because people here care for one another. If you ever have a problem, all you need to do is ask someone around you, and they will more than likely be willing to help out. The campus is very welcoming and involved with the surrounding community. You will never feel left out if you join a couple of organizations and make friends your freshman year.

The University is beautiful, especially during the fall, so don’t forget that you can study outside on the campus mall. Students here just don’t focus on academics; they focus on having fun as well. During the school day, you will see students studying and playing Frisbee on the campus lawn. We are a very friendly campus here, and we enjoy meeting new people.
