UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Always for the students...
Always teaching to the best of our ability...
Always so our students may achieve their greater purpose.
In the fall of 1912 the Agriculture Department began classes in just three rooms in South Hall with two and one-half instructors. Fifty-three men enrolled for the first school year. In 2012, we marked 100 years since that humble beginning. While much has changed, much remains the same… our dedication to students, our passion for teaching, and our desire to help students fulfill their greater purpose.

Here are some highlights of the past year's Centennial activities...
