4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being at UWRF I've only had a bad experience from 1 professor out of the 11 classes I've taken. I really enjoy the quality of the classes at UWRF. There are so many different options that a student can major in and I think that's awesome. From arts to agriculture, there are so many awesome courses available. The class sizes are small as well which is great for when students need help. The professors make sure that students have access to 1 on 1 help if they need it too.

Overall Experience: I think that the services at the university provides really help a lot. There are a few career fairs throughout the year and I have never attended one, but I think they're extremely beneficial to juniors and seniors that are looking for their career. UWRF really recognizes their alumni as well, at least the CAFES program does. At the colt sale they had an event dedicated to alumni. Also it's very admirable that UWRF recognizes it's graduating seniors that were hired before graduation, by posting their story on social media. This encourages students to work hard and find a career right off the bat so they can be featured too.

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe and secure on campus. I know someone who was assaulted, and they reported everything to the school administrators and they got on it right away. They banned the boy from seeing her, or even entering any dorm that she's in. It made me realize how much the school actually cares about victim's safety. Also the counseling services are really awesome and easy to get involved with. They are free and the counselors are amazing people to talk to and they help so much.

Campus Housing: I think that living on campus is great and affordable. Maybe it depends on the dorm, but Parker was a great place to live freshman year. My RA made it easy to get used to living in a dorm with people I didn't know. The bathrooms were cleaned every weekday so that was great. The housing process was a little difficult since everyone was trying to get into Ames/Prucha/Hathorn at the same time, so it made it kinda scary if you couldn't get in.

Greek Life: At UWRF Greek Life doesn't really make a big difference in the social atmosphere at all. Greek life isn't very big. We have a few sororities and fraternities but only 2 fraternities are ones that people know and that's because they throw parties. I am not sure about most of the campus but the people I know that are non-Greek are pretty indifferent towards the people who are Greek. Like I said it's not a very big thing at UWRF, people don't really care. I think the only two Greek houses are the two that throw parties and are popular. We have no houses for the sororities.

Athletics: I feel that the students at UWRF have a lot of school spirit when it comes to certain sports such as basketball. I know many people who were involved with intramural sports and they said they had a lot of fun and would do it again. It seems that most if not all people who play a sport at UWRF have really great team spirit and plays fair. A great way the school gets people active is the FOA rental center, it has great outdoor equipment rentals such as mountain bikes and rollerblades.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that UWRF is a great school because of the inclusivity, the opportunities on and off campus, and everything that the school has to offer for it's students. One of the best things about UWRF is the free stuff for students; such as books, sports rentals, counseling, and so much more. I'm incredibly glad that I made the decision to move to River Falls all the way from Las Vegas, and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

Health & Safety: I never really hear much about anything illegal happening on campus, so that either means nothing happens or it is just covered up. I believe it's just covered up.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had relatively normal class sizes, and normal teachers. I can tell that most of the teachers are happy to teach about what they know and study, but some are not very good at the teaching part.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have yet to look into any of these options, but I have heard mostly good things about all options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I guess it's just normal dorm life. The rooms are small, the bathrooms are disgusting, and the other people on the floor are outrageously loud and rude.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I really know nothing about the greek life on my campus, except for that it is very low key.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am happy with what is a slabs to me as a varsity tennis player, but our athletic department is not very good for normal students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UW- River Falls seems to be a rather nice school, there are somethings that I am not too overly happy about. Although, overall I am satisfied.

Overall Experience: The small class sizes, friendly people, and the community makes it enjoyable.

Health & Safety: This campus is a very safe campus. There several blue poles around campus you can go to whenever you do not feel safe, and a police officer will come to help you. They will also bring you to and from buildings if you do not feel safe walking back to your dorm at night. Tests of alarms are done regularly in case of emergencies that may occur. They do a great job in providing security to their residents. There has never been a moment when I do not feel safe on campus.

Overall Experience: My experience with my classes have been enjoyable. I have not had a professor I disliked yet. Every one of them has been friendly and energetic when they teach. I can always tell when they enjoy what they are teaching and that they are well educated about it. My professors have always been open to meet and have been supportive and helpful when I come to them needing help with the class. I have had both big lecture styled classes and smaller interactive classes and I feel each has been able to be tough effectively. There are a lot of options to take to cover an area of your degree which is helpful to make sure there is always something out there I can take. My overall classroom experience has been great and I am able to learn a lot.

Overall Experience: The student career prospects here are very helpful. In every building there is a board with job and internship postings. These are so valuable in my opinion because they are a great way to help me find a job in my field when the time comes for me to apply for some. The career services here is a great facility for us to use to help with professional success that I find very useful. The Hire A Falcon site with job postings has also been very helpful when searching for a job on campus and around the area. This school has many great tools to utilize to help you prepare for your professional future.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience. Here I was able to meet many people and join many organizations and clubs on campus. The dorms and amenities allow me to get connected as well as separate myself to get stuff done when I need to. Some of the dorms are a longer walk from the main campus, which at times is nice because it provides separation. However during the cold winter days it can be tough motivating myself to walk outside to make it to my classes. The social atmosphere is great in the dorms. There are many activities that are planned by the resident assistant to get you connected with people on your floor and entire building. Overall, I enjoy living in the dorms on campus.

Athletics: The athletics at my school are a fun thing to attend, and play, for many students around campus. One of the most popular, as well as my favorite, varsity sport to attend is hockey. Games on Friday and Saturday nights are always packed in the rink and the crowd is energetic and dressed in our school colors. I am never disappointed when I leave after a good hockey game. Intramural sports are also a big thing in my school. There are a variety of different sports you can play in tournaments for. I enjoy playing these because, unlike varsity sports, these are less competitive. To me, that is more fun and enjoyable just playing a sport with your friends. I also like to go and cheer on my friends when they play. The athletic activities around campus are always a fun thing to attend or participate.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far my school experience was even better than I imagined. There are so many great students as well as professors that you get to interact with every day. Whenever I need help, there is always an organization or person I can go to that will help me with any question I may have. I found a variety of extracurricular activities to get involved in to unwind after a long day of classes. There was a club for almost every interest, and if they did not have it, you could create it. They did a great job in getting us new coming students familiar with campus as well as everything it has to offer. I have met many great friends here that make my experience worth it. I wouldn't change my decision to go here if I had to do it all over. I would choose my school again in a heartbeat.
