The University of Wisconsin - River Falls is the ideal university in the Midwest. UWRF is close to the Twin Cities yet has a small town, agricultural feel. It is the perfect size if you’re looking for both, the college experience and an easy-to-navigate campus, overlooking the beautiful Kinnickinnic River. I can walk anywhere on campus and hear a warm “hello” from many friends and strangers out and about. The university has an affordable tuition rate and books are free! The professors are as caring and kind as your friends and family, making your classes even more enjoyable. There is no limit to the opportunities students have at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls!

Being a first generation college student and a freshman starting her first year at UW-River Falls, I was a little unsure about how adjusting to college life would be for me. I'm pleased to say it has went above & beyond my highest expectations. Besides a few hiccups down the road, my experience has been amazing. The academics are challenging, but very interesting. They have a phenomenal College of Agriculture, Food, & Environmental Sciences, including my major of Animal Science. It's a very affordable, fairly small, agricultural based college in a small town. The campus and scenery is beautiful, & everyone is welcomed with open arms, no matter what. It's very inclusive and I personally have found my niche with lifelong friends. The professors really do care about their students, & you literally are set up for success. Besides the occasional cold showers, bland college dinners & loud neighbors, UW-River Falls was the right choice for me!
Second year student, so far I like the school, I've met some pretty awesome people through classes and my team, classes are classes, nothing to special about them, but now that I am finally in my major, I am super excited about everything I am going to learn! Definitely the right school for me.
