Things to Do
Sure, Fond du Lac is a small community – just more than 43,000 residents call it home – but the things happening on campus are BIG.
Whether it’s cheering on one of our 21 NCAA sports or four club teams, attending a stand-up or musical performance, participating in a student organization, going to one of our many annual celebrations, or venturing out beyond our campus borders, there’s something for everyone to keep busy.
Our 78-acre residential campus is located just an hour’s drive from Madison, Milwaukee, and Green Bay, while downtown Fond du Lac offerings the fun of boutiques, a rich offering of museums, galleries, and restaurants, and Lake Winnebago – Wisconsin’s largest lake surrounded by 137,708 acres of land – serves as our very own four-season backyard playground.
And don’t forget the Dock Spiders, a Northwoods League semi-pro baseball team whose stadium right across the street from campus attracts an average of nearly 3,000 visitors each week.
