What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here at University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The other students are friendly and welcoming as well are the professors. The class sizes are perfect and the professors are always available to talk to and get some extra help. The campus is an absolutely perfect size, you can make it from one end to the other in 15 minutes. There is so much to do and participate in here at River Falls, everything from sports and club sports as well as academic clubs. I am very happy with my choice to enroll at UWRF.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think this is a pretty great college when you know what you want to major in. The residence hall I live in is updated, so it is really nice to live there. The other ones are not updated and look pretty old. The food has it's good days and bad, usually I can find something I would want to eat. I like the small campus and small class sizes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF) was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking to further their education beyond high school. First, for those concerned about the cost of college, UWRF is very affordable. I was able to work part-time and pay my way through school entirely out of pocket. Considering its affordability, UWRF offers an incredible educational experience. All of the professors are very knowledgeable and active in research, making them a reliable source for learning. Additionally, the class sizes are small with a maximum of 25 students per class (excluding large, joined classes such as Anatomy and Physiology). I found the education aspect of UWRF to be valuable and competitive. If socializing is important to you, there are many clubs and organizations to get involved in. I am unsure about drug/alcohol use as I refrained from those activities, so in that concern, I am not a reliable source. Athletics are fairly popular, but this is not a division one college, so it is not widely celebrated. It is, however, nice to attend a sporting event for a low price and not have the seats packed. Overall, as I said, my experience at UWRF was wonderful, and I WOULD recommend it to others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls may be small in size but offers the opportunity for students to feel welcome into their community. A day never goes by when you don't see someone you know on your way to class. River Falls has the ability to give you that small town feel while away from your family and friends. The class sizes never go beyond 70 students which allowing students to have more in-depth discussions and relationship building. One of the highlights of this school are the two campus farms. Even if you arn't an agriculture major, you may find yourself growing to love taking a bike ride out by the farms just to pet the animals. While many choose to major in agriculture, many other opportunities are offered, specifically in the music, psychology, education, and science programs. Overall, River Falls is a great place to start off your freshman year in an inclusive and welcoming school on a gorgeous campus in the country.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

River Falls is a great place to live and study! Its a great little town with some shops and the great small town feel. Only 30 minutes from the Twin Cities Metro- there's plenty of things to see and do and they are all close by. The professors are great- very knowledgeable and available. Campus dorms are nice- and larger than most I've been in. The price and experience are both unbeatable. Go Falcons!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. There were so many factors of the University and the town that interested me. It was a relatively small town, close to the Twin Cities, a variety of art classes and study abroad opportunities, and it's a huge school for students interested in Animal Science or Agriculture.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming from a small rural high school, I love the University of Wisconsin-River Falls! It is the perfect school for me. At first, as expected with most schools of any size, the classes for general education requirements filled quickly and the class sizes were roughly 100-150. When classes pertain more to your degree, they are smaller, usually between 15-50 or so. As far as the people, there are many students pursuing various degrees with diverse backgrounds. People are very friendly and you rarely have to worry about making friends. The campus offers many opportunities to get involved too. They have organizations for everyone and you can easily start one if you want. One big thing about this university is it has multiple lab farms for the students to learn and interact with. In addition, the books here are FREE! From what I know at this stage, the education is pretty good too. I feel confident that I will be able to go into the career world and succeed. The dorms are decent. They have free laundry, nice rooms, nice study areas, and nice social rooms for collaboration. For food, there are a quite a few options. They have little food caterers built within the university center along with a buffet style commons area. The food within the commons is pretty regular. They normally have the same food groups each week. There is also a little store for food and hygienic products which is very helpful too. For weekends the campus is very empty. Many people leave and go do things off campus. For crime, I feel pretty safe here. As far as the community goes, there are various activities to participate in in the city. There is a park nearby, hiking trails, fishing spots, historical places, churches, schools, shops, restaurants, stores, and if River Falls doesn't have what you are looking for, the Twin Cities are only 30-45 minutes away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a friendly campus with a lot of activities to get involved in on and off campus! The food is good, the people are better (even the professors), and the classes are worth the money. Lots of ag/sci opportunities and labs. It's a small town but the twin cities are a forty-five minute drive away. You won't get bored. Definitely worth it!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back and give advice to my high school self is the importance of learning how to create a budget. In high school the personal finance class isn’t a requirement so I didn’t take it. Once I got to college I realized I was spending more money than I was taking in. When you have that freedom to swipe your card without a parent guiding you it becomes a lot easier to spend money you don’t have. I had to learned very quickly how to create a budget for myself. The real world is more expensive than I ever realized in high school. My next piece of advice is to experience all you can your last year. My senior year I was mostly going to a technical college because I only needed English to graduate. But because I mostly taking college credits I passed on a lot of high school activities. When you go to high school you don’t realize how many memories you are making. I would say don’t pass up those chances to hang out with your grade because you never know when it will be the last time.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend University of Wisconsin-River Falls is someone who wants the community feel. We are medium size school but the university does a good job keeping our class sizes to about 20 students. River Falls campus has a sense of family. When you are walking to class people will say hello to you and smile. If someone who is looking for a more Rural setting for their campus River Falls is the place to be. I think that River Falls is a good university to attend because you get the best of both worlds.
