Greetings

Joe Gow near UW-L Clock Tower

It's a pleasure to welcome you to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  We are a vibrant learning community rich with multi-talented students, faculty, and staff.  Our warm and friendly campus is situated between towering bluffs and the mighty Mississippi River.  The natural beauty of the 7 Rivers Region on the Upper Mississippi makes this one of the most scenic areas in the country. We take great pride in the fact that Kiplinger's and U.S. News & World Report rank UW-L as one of the finest public comprehensive universities in the country.

We are nationally recognized for our programs in allied health and the sciences, and we also have an accredited College of Business Administration, numerous programs in high tech areas, a renowned program in river studies, international connections, and a broad array of academic opportunities in the letters and humanities. In addition we have a lively arts community and one of the finest NCAA Division III programs in the country.  All of this makes UW-L a wonderful place to explore your passions and pursue your dreams.

We hope you'll enjoy your electronic view of UW-L.  But please be sure to come visit us--when you do, we hope you'll agree that there's no place quite like UW-L!

Best wishes,
Joe Gow
