This has occurred in a couple different ways on our campus.

UWRF provides its Animal Science students with many hands-on experiences and activities in classes, which greatly improves the quality of education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus can empty out a little on weekends, as many students go home.

While there are some things that could be improved at UWRF, I have definitely enjoyed my time there. There are plenty of opportunities to explore regarding education abroad, internships, on-campus jobs and clubs, majors and minors, and campus activities. The biggest thing to keep in mind at UWRF is that you are kind of on your own. Your advisor does not help you much if you don't reach out to them first and they don't give you much information about internships or major-related items so you have to find out about those on your own. Overall, I've really enjoyed how low-cost and local UWRF is and how the university is really connected to the community.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Keep in mind that UWRF is not just an agriculture school, there are plenty of majors and minors to choose from and there is a known disconnect between agriculture majors and others. This is a school for those who enjoy being close to home (if you're from or around the Twin Cities) and don't want to spend a lot of money on your education. The campus is fairly small, you can walk to every building except the off-campus lab farm. The city is just a short walk away as well.

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls has a beautiful campus with really nice buildings and a challenging, comprehensive learning experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be prepared to pay for parking and stay on top of communication with your advisor.

It's a large, outstanding school. There are many classes you may not get anywhere else, like glass blowing. UWRF has the world's second-oldest program in glass blowing. There is also a very accurate sundial on one of the buildings. The clubs welcome students not in their clubs when they host events. The professors are easy to approach if you have any issues, and they're also very easy to work with. If you're excited about something about their class, they are excited you're excited. There are a lot of education abroad opportunities as well, and such opportunities can cover general education credits and/or major credits.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It can be very stressful, but that's every college. Some classes can be boring or hard, but, once again, that's every college.

Caitlyn Keyes



I love that every student has equal opportunities, and the professors really want to help their students and are very understanding.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some people might not like that it is such a small campus.
