Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved attending the University of Wisconsin- River Falls. The sense of community is great at this college. I changed my major multiple times, each time a advisor was waiting to help me discuss my options. I finally settled on getting my Animal Science degree, which was great. The hands on experience was unmatched by all other colleges I toured. I learned not only from my professors but from other students, clubs and trips. Student activities are great. The cafeteria always had a great selections, the student center offered more than you needed and the library was open late to squeeze in some late minute studying. Professors gave their blood, sweat and tears into these students and it showed by the great reaction I get when telling people that I attended the University of Wisconsin - River Falls. The best part about the University of Wisconsin- River Falls was the Lab Farms. Growing up in the cities this was a great way for me to gain hands on experience. I was able to work on my riding skills with the horse, learn more about dairy cows, pigs and sheep. This was the part of my education that came in handy working on difference farms after graduation. Another highlight from my school time at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls was the clubs and lasting friendship that I made. I am able to network and bound over our education. The only thing that disliked about this college was the fact that most of the population left on the weekends. Leaving it pretty dead on campus.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012

I applied to three undergraduate programs and chose River Falls due to the size of the university and location. It's close enough to the Twin Cities to really be considered a suburb, but far enough to feel some independence. I initially started in the elementary education program and quickly switch to social work after learning about it from a school social worker in an elementary school. I loved my cohort and stay in touch with many of my fellow graduates. I feel the program prepared me for work as a social worker, especially in the mental health field. Field instruction was a large component of the program, along with a rigorous research project, designed to help students in their graduate studies.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending a public university has gave me the opportunity to learn the importance of having diversity within cultures. My time at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls was spent learning how to think differently as well as how to find answers to complex questions. Additionally, I have utilized these skills throughout law school to further my education.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The university of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF) is a wonderful place to live, work, and, most importantly, learn. Graduating from the Education program, I spent four years living on campus and immersing myself in the school community. There are a variety of clubs, activities, and sports in which a student can participate. I particularly enjoyed the intramural broom-ball league. Finding a job that puts you in the center of the school community is easy; there are jobs ranging from working in the library to the front desk in the University Center. As a former student manager and tutor of the Writing Center, I also have to recommend tutoring services. The tutoring centers are beneficial for working through tough assignments and achieving academic goals. My favorite part about UWRF is that the class sizes are small enough that I was able to build relationships with my peers and my professors. Those relationships are crucial for success, whether it's a study group for the next big exam, networking, or seeking guidance. The professors in the English and Education departments helped me understand my field of study and gain the skills and confidence I needed to secure the teaching job that I have now. UWRF impacted who I am today, and I am forever grateful for pursuing my education at this university.

Graduation Year: 2010

I found the choice of classes for gen eds to be a good variety, so I could choose things that truly interested me, not just a class to do in order to graduate. The campus was lovely--green space and trees, not just buildings and sidewalks. The campus and University Center had a nice atmosphere, whether you were just visiting or going for a meal. All the professors I had while there were knowledgeable, approachable, and enthusiastic about their classes, which really helps--when the professor is excited to teach, it makes it easier to get excited to learn; plus, being approachable makes it easy to go to them for help.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

Small town feel, good classes and professors (I think it was my major, everyone was a lot more laid back and fun). Still close enough to the city so I didn't feel trapped out in the country. A suitcase school as many people call it, a lot of students leave on the weekend to go back home. Heavy drinking but I guess that goes for any school.

Degree: Communications

River Falls is a great school for the price. Every professor I had was intelligent, courteous, and helpful when I needed it. It's not the most high end school, but I learned a lot and really enjoyed my time while I was there!
