Hello! How are you withstanding the change in weather? Winter’s here for sure and that can be a tough transition. We hope that you’re hanging in there and staying warm.  We're thankful for our fellow students and faculty that make Western a pleasant place to spend our time.

Western Student Health Center

Taking care of yourself is important! Healthcare is the most important and often one of the most neglected things in our lives. Keeping on top of your personal health can be expensive and time-consuming, especially for those of us without employer-provided insurance or a primary care provider. Luckily, Western and UWL has partnered with Mayo Health Systems to provide access to high-quality healthcare for all Western Students. For those with a Western Student ID, visits only cost a $10 co-pay and include primary care, care for chronic health problems, minor surgical procedures, medical management of mental health concerns, gynecological services, immunization and TB testing, physical exams, reproductive services, basic lab services, allergy injections, HIV testing and counseling, physical therapy services, consultation, and referral.


The Student Health Center is located in the Health Services Building on the corner of 13th Street and Badger. Appointments can be made in person Monday - Friday, 8AM - 4PM or online at

Giving Thanks

With Thanksgiving upon us, we here at Western Student Government wanted to take the chance to share some things that we're thankful for.


"I am thankful for my friends and family and the opportunity to be able to be part of a great Western Community." - Sally, Campus Events Coordinator

"I’m thankful for so many things this year. First and foremost, I’m thankful for all the connections I’ve made this past year here in La Crosse. It’s been an incredibly eventful year so far, and through all my activities I’ve made some friendships that I hope last for years to come. I’m also thankful for my family and all their support with my life and education. It’s been a great year and I can’t wait to spend this break relaxing and focusing on the important things."

-  Shanna, Student Parliamentarian

"I'm thankful that I get to spend so much time with family since I moved to La Crosse. I'm thankful for my partner, my mother, my sister, my nephews, and everyone else who makes my life what it is." - Ben, Student Press Secretary

"I am thankful for my family and good friends. I am also thankful for having good health and the blessing on my life. I am also thankful to have the opportunity to serve the western student community as Student Vice-President." - David, Student Vice-President
