UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

Advanced Placement U.S. History Review Day

AP History Review Day at UWRF

This popular event draws around 300 area high school students each year. History Professors Kurt Leichtle (UW-River Falls) and Robert Zeidel (UW-Stout) lead the U.S. history review session designed to help prepare students for the placement exam in early May. The event provides a valuable experience at UW-River Falls as these students begin to plan for their own college careers. (Photo 2012 Sue Voelker/UW-River Falls)
