The University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac is a freshman/sophomore campus of the University of Wisconsin, one of the finest university systems in the world.
UW-Fond du Lac offers courses that are the foundation for more than 250 majors. Academic offerings include day and evening credit courses, study skills workshops and a college success course. Several bachelor's degree completion programs from five UW four-year schools can be earned entirely on the UW-Fond du Lac campus.
The park-like campus is composed of six buildings that surround a two-acre lake. The 60-acre Gottfried Prairie and Arboretum serves as an outdoor classroom and provides recreational opportunities.
A $13 million expansion/renovation project was completed in the fall of 2000 and transformed UW-Fond du Lac into a state-of-the-art facility with new science labs and larger and brighter classrooms. A beautiful new two-story University Center was added to the campus as part of the renovation project and includes a new commons area that is popular with students and has also been the site of several community events. The University Center includes a new library, music suite, the 340-seat Prairie Theater, campus bookstore and cafeteria.
The UW-Fond du Lac Foundation offers a number of academic scholarships for new, continuing and returning adult students. The Foundation awards approximately 30 scholarships ranging from $500 to full tuition each year.
