The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (also known as UW-Eau Claire or UWEC) is a public university in west-central Wisconsin, United States. It offers Bachelor's and Master's degrees along with numerous certificates. Located in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, the University sits along the banks of the Chippewa River and on the edge of the Chippewa Valley. Consisting of 28 major buildings spanning 333 acres (1.3 km²), the University's annual enrollment is more than 10,000. The school is generally referred to by students and faculty as UW-Eau Claire or by its initials, UWEC. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks UW-Eau Claire among the best regional public universities in the Midwest. The 2008 edition of "America's Best Colleges" ranks UW-Eau Claire No. 5 among the top regional public universities in the Midwest and 26th among all private and public institutions in the Midwest. The University is affiliated with the NCAA's Division III sports program. The mascot is the "Eau Claire Blugold," a name coined to reflect the school colors (navy blue and old gold). Previous mascot and athletic team names include: the Normals, the Normalites (because UWEC was founded as Eau Claire State Normal School), the Blue and Gold Warriors, the Blue and Gold Gridirons, the Zornmen (in honor of Willis L. "Bill" Zorn, basketball and football coach from 1928-1968), the Golden Tornadoes, the Zornadoes, the Golden Zornadoes, the Blue and Gold Squad, the Bluegold Squad, and the Bluegolds. There is no evidence in the Periscope yearbooks of a bulldog mascot prior to 1940. Further research may uncover some evidence of the reported "Eau Claire Bulldogs," an anagram of Blugolds. The actual meaning of the mascot has been debated for some time.
