Prospective Students

At UW-River Falls, we do things differently.

In our ongoing quest for excellence, we ask questions, we encourage, we create, and we innovate. Most importnatly, we believe in and support our students, and we celebrate with them as they turn their dreams in reality. 

We are proud of what we have to offer at UW-River Falls: inspired teaching, exceptional music making, and opportunities to grow as a musician and human being. At UWRF, the future is bright! 

Welcome home, future Falcons!

The world is changing, including the interests and lived experiences of prospective music majors. With our new Music Major Entrance Expo, we're changing, too. At UW-River Falls, prospective students can now showcase who they are in a variety of ways, including:

  • Performances (any style or genre) 
  • Leadership Videos (e.g., leading sectionals, conducting, etc) 
  • Compositions/Arrangements 
  • Digital Media 
  • Other (the choice is yours) 

Students can do their Entrance Expos on campus at UWRF or virtually (via Zoom) - and they can choose to share in real time or via recordings. Why? We want to get to know who our prospective students are as people and musicians - and we love to see them shine!

Student Perspectives 

"Being a student in the Music Department at UWRF has shown me that there are professors that truly care about me, my education, and my future. Every time I have a lesson or a class, I feel welcomed and valued by each professor and that’s extremely important to me. I’m so glad I chose UW-River Falls!"
