Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

UWRF is the school to choose if you want to learn a lot in a friendly, inviting atmosphere from professors who understand where you are coming from , call you by name, and stop to chat with you if you run into outside of the classroom.

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

One piece of advice... VISIT THE SCHOOL! I am currently a tour guide for the University of Wisconsin- River Falls, and I cannot tell you how many people do not visit the school they were accepted to until the day they arrive for registration! It is important to visit each school you are thinking about attending so you can get the overall "feel" of the college's atmosphere. I remember visiting the 3 schools I was accepted to, and the moment I arrived on campus at my current school, I immediately thought, "This is the one!"

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I think the worst thing about the school is that many people go home to work on the weekends! There are plenty of available jobs in the area, and many exciting things to do on campus. I think it's because many of the students here are very close to their families, and take the time on the weekend to visit home.

What's unique about your campus?

The class sizes are small so it is easier to get the one-on-one learning experience. This way it is easier to understand what is going on. All of the professors are intent on making sure we understand what is going on, and that we are learning at our full potential.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This college is perfect for people who are looking to go into agriculture, teaching, and any form of business. It is more of a liberal arts school than graphic arts. However, I am still going into advertising design, graphic design, with a Marketing Communications major, so this college is perfect for almost anyone!

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

Help your kids pay for school, there's enough stress from having to go full-time, achieving high grades, staying involved, and maintaining a social life.

What's unique about your campus?

The small campus. It's easy to get to all of your classes within a reasonable amount of time.

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

Take every aspect of the college into consideration. It's not only about the size of the school or classes, but also about the teachers, students, and how closely their programs fit the degree you are going for. For example if you wanted to become a veterinarian but the school isn't geared toward helping you prepare for vet school, it might not be the best choice. If you are unsure of your degree path then make sure the college offers a wide variety of possible degrees that follow your interests. Don't just go with what is familiar either. Look for things that might be different for you so you can open yourself up to new experiences. Just try to take everything that you feel is important into consideration, such as proximity to home/family if you plan to visit a lot, or types of activities you know you want to be a part of, also look for activities that interest you but you've maybe never had the chance to participate in before.

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

When you are looking at a potential school the three things to examine are academic programs, student organizations, and the location. Look for a school with diverse programs, because chances are that the student will change their major. Also, pick a place that the student can imagine living for four or more years. Students often forget to closely examine the social setting of the schools locatoin. Student organizations should be examined as they are good to be a member of. Student organizations look good on a resume and are an excellent way to make friends on campus.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that many people leave on the weekends. There are many student organizations but they are smaller groups.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If a person can't handle going to school in a small town environment then they should not attend this school. Students from a large city often have adjustment problems here.

One of my favorite quotations by Tom Landry (former coach of the Dallas Cowboys) is "today I gave everything I had and what I kept for myself I lost forever." This quotation reminds us that it is truly the things we do outside of ourselves that will make an impact on our world. Yet, when you are choosing a college you are choosing to invest in yourself, and this investment is what will allow you to give back to your world. It is important when choosing a college to choose one that is going to best equip you as an individual to give back to others in the the way that you want. I majored in Communications and minored in Spanish, now I realize that I want to return to graduate school for a degree in International Education Development. Through the process of figuring out how I wanted to give back, I figured out which college and program will be the best fit for me. So take a good look at your life up until now and ask yourself what you want to give, and that will help you figure out what you need to get from your college education.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The pricetag the fact that I got out with under 20,000 in debt and I just rented my textbooks as opposed to buying.

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

Advice I would give parents and students is that they should take their time to look at multiple different schools to get a good understanding of what you want in a college. For the students, you are usually starting out new so live out side of your normal box. Take risks with that you do, while being safe at the same time. Have fun and enjoy yourself, these really are the best years of your life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who wants to go to a big school. This is a big enough school where you don't know everyone, but small enough where word gets around fast.
