Superior, Wisconsin, the home of UW-Superior, offers the convenience of city living and the year-round recreational opportunities of the North Woods. The city overlooks the western tip of Lake Superior, and combines with neighboring Duluth, Minnesota, to provide a rich metro setting with live entertainment, shopping, the arts, great dining, and night clubs -- everything you want out of city life. Yet it's just minutes away from canoeing, fishing, hiking, sailing, skiing, snowboarding and the great outdoors. That means you can attend performances of a professional ballet troupe and a professional orchestra, or you can walk miles of sandy beaches along Lake Superior, all within a 10-minute drive of campus.

UW-Superior is Wisconsinís Public Liberal Arts College, with a history of educational innovation dating to its founding in 1893. Hallmarks include a 17:1 faculty:student ratio. The campus is profiled in Colleges of Distinction
