Parents: Partners for Success!

At River Falls, we know that parents and families play an important role in the lives of their students during the college selection and admissions process, and during their students' college careers.

The resources found here will help you guide and support your student as they prepare for and make the most of their college years. Please contact us any time you have questions or concerns. We look forward to becoming a partner in your student's educational experience.

Academic Programs: For more than 130 years, River Falls has been providing students with academic excellence in more than 40 different areas of study. With a student/faculty ratio of just 23-1, your student will develop connections with faculty and staff who have a strong commitment to helping them obtain internships, graduate in four years, choose a career, and search for a job.

Location: At River Falls, your student will experience all the advantages of a safe, friendly community with the benefits of living near a major metropolitan area. Located on the east edge of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, River Falls is easily within reach of professional internships, major league sports, museums, shopping, and much more.

Affordability: At River Falls, your student will receive a quality education at an affordable price . Low tuition, room/board, textbooks, and student activity fees make it even easier to finance your student's college education. Plus, nearly two-thirds of our students receive financial aid.

Campus Community: With the majority of our freshmen and sophomores living on campus, your student will develop a sense of community within the residence halls. The programming, educational, and social opportunities designed specifically for first-year students will help your son/daughter feel right at home.

Involvement Opportunities: You can also encourage your student to get involved in one of our 150 student organizations. Academic, volunteer, sports, ethnic, political, religious, and residence life groups are a great way for you to meet new people and develop important leadership and communication skills.
