What Students are Saying

Keith Richardson

"The variety of experiences I have had at UWRF as a music major is amazing. I have grown as a musician and a person, and this group of faculty are here to make my experience positive; I feel the professors here actually care. I came here because my teacher suggested this place, and I've never looked back. Nowhere else could I get the kind of experience I've had here." --Keith Richardson, current student
