CUW’s bluff one of the most beautiful attractions on campus. Students, faculty and individuals in the community enjoy the bluff and all it has to offer.
The bluff’s length is 2,700, overlooks Lake Michigan, and includes more than 200 steps. The path leads to the lake shoreline, including a walkway which is great for those who enjoy walking and running. In addition, a boardwalk and beach are located at the bottom of the bluff.
CUW students enjoy using the bluff during its prime season, summer time, when they can swim, make bonfires and hang out.
According to student Megan Stingle, the bluff includes plenty of things to do.
“I love the bluff here on campus, as do many others. When the weather is nice, I like to take walks on the bluff, sit on the rocks, and sometimes will watch the sunset. It’s very therapeutic, and as a student we need all forms of therapy we can get. The scenery is absolutely stunning, you have the lake, the trees, and can observe wildlife,” Stingle said.
Also, the university has attempted to maintain the bluff during the last decade. The bluff was eroding, so the university completed a project to stop it. Safety is a concern for university administration, student and surrounding community.
The bluff is a natural beauty for students, faculty and the community. Contact campus safety for more information.
