About the City of La Crosse:

The UW-L campus is nestled in a residential area of the City of La Crosse (pop. 51,818) located in western Wisconsin.  The area is famous for its exceptional natural beauty which includes the Mississippi River on one side, majestic bluffs on the other, and views of rolling farmland and forested valleys in between. La Crosse is considered one of the most scenic places in mid-America. Abundant water, woodlands and varying terrain provide ample opportunities for year-round outdoor recreation. Only a couple of hours from Minneapolis or Madison, La Crosse enjoys the affordability and charm of small town living with larger city benefits.  Three colleges, two world-class medical institutions, the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra, a restored nineteenth century downtown business district, and a number of galleries and art centers have made La Crosse a regional center for culture, entertainment, medical care, shopping, sports and recreation.


UW-La Crosse has appeared prominently on the U.S. News & World Report list of "America's Best Colleges" for more than a decade and is ranked consistently as one of the top three public comprehensive universities in the Midwest.  It is also among only 12 institutions cited nationally by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities for its success in linking campus culture and university leadership to outstanding graduation rates.
