The campus is in a residential neighborhood in the City of La Crosse (city population ~52,000; metropolitan area pop. 107,000). A major point of interest on the "Great River Road" that winds north and south through 10 states along the Mississipi River, La Crosse is on the east bank of the river below towering bluffs separated by steep-walled ravines known as coulees. The 7 Rivers Region is famous for its exceptional natural beauty. Abundant water, woodlands and varying terrain provide a year-round invitation to those who enjoy outdoor activities such as skiing, hunting, fishing, skating, riding, camping and hiking. The community is at the western end of a statewide network of bicycle trails.
