Many of the classes to fill general requirements are not particularly intense. However, by testing into higher course levels in several subjects I have managed to avoid that as much as possible. I also take the maximum number of credits every semester.

    It's an average school, fairly easy and great community. I wish teachers were a little better. I also wish it had more study abroad programs.

    The University of Wisconsin- River Falls campus provides an excellent personalized education with an all-inclusive welcoming environment for undergraduate education. The campus is small enough where professors actually get to know you as an whole person in small class sizes. However, this is historically a 'suitcase' campus where many students go back home on the weekend for various reasons and can be BORING.

    The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is a great choice if you live in the area since most students go home on weekends. It is the best choice in the state if you want to study equine science, and is also a good choice for dairy science or if you would like to become a teacher. If you don't like traveling into Minnesota or to another town to do literally anything, look elsewhere.

    Most of the professors really care about you and want you to succeed in their classes. The campus is beautiful, and the classrooms and computers labs are really nice. There are also a variety of sports, and the intramural sports are set up really well and a lot of fun!

    UW-River Falls is a medium sized university nuzzled in the small town of River Falls, only 20 to 30 minutes away from the Twin Cities. The school is most well-known for its elementary school education, agricultural studies/science, and art education programs. The university has a great atmosphere and is globally connected offering a lot of affordable study abroad options.

    The atmosphere of the students and the staff bring a feeling of a small town community and closeness you will not normally find in larger universities. The classes are very diverse for the size of the college and the attention and interest in the students's needs by the professors are greatly noticed. Overall it is a great location and enjoyable school.
