We hope to answer some of your questions with the information on this page, but also feel free to contact us by phone or email if you have specific inquiries! For an overview of CAFES, download our brochure.
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls, located in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, is only 30 miles east of Minneapolis-St Paul. You and your family can visit campus by signing up for one of our Falcon Preview Days or scheduling a small group visit.
Our faculty are devoted to excellence in undergraduate education. Many faculty members have been honored with outside recognition of their teaching expertise. They focus on hands-on, real-world experiences that augment classroom learning.
You bet! We have programs to Mexico, Scotland, France and many other places. Check out our Global Connections page. There are also opportunities that are specific to a CAFES program, such as the India Trip, or opportunities that can be tailored to an individual major, such as this international horticulture internship.
Depending on what major or program of study you enter into, there are many facilities available for your use, including two laboratory farms, dairy and meat processing plants, fruit and vegetable processing lab, a greenhouse and more. All facilities are quite well equipped, but we are always working to improve. Currently, there are renovations planned for the dairy plant and the two laboratory farms.
