WHAT I LIKED

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.
