The UW -Waukesha is a liberal arts, transfer campus with a small college atmosphere. Students find many opportunities for extracurricular participation and leadership.
Participation outside the classroom enhances the college experience by sharpening organizational, leadership and communication skills. The very skills transfer institutions and future employers are looking for. Several studies have shown that students who are actively engaged in the campus community through activities and personal connections are more likely to succeed academically.
