I enjoyed going to UWEC. It has a beautiful campus. The music department is very good, which is why I chose to go there. The ensembles and teachers are excellent. There is a lot of work students need to do that is unrelated to their field of interest, but that is probably the case in most schools.
I would recommend this college, I have learned a lot and it is just a nice place to go to school. If I had to chose again I would go to college at University of Wisconsin Eau Claire again. The pros are individual teacher attention, smaller class sizes and a beautiful campus. The cons are the town is smallish and its a different sort of culture than I am used to. Eau Claire has a great business program (if you haven't heard) and there very well respected in the midwest.
