UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Beginning college or transferring to a new institution brings change and excitement, and it also brings new challenges. At UW-River Falls, we want you to be successful throughout your entire college experience, and we want to help you establish a firm foundation as you get started.
Check out some of the programs going on on campus after the Week of Welcome ends that will help you in your transition to and through your first year at UWRF.
While you are going to be learning from experience throughout your first year on campus, we will also be sharing our advice things we hear from students time and time again about the transition to campus. Each month, topics will focus on things like academic success, getting involved on campus, and general tips for how to make the most of all that UWRF has to offer. Read along with us month by month in our First-Year Student Blog!
We are excited to welcome you to YOUR campus! As a new member of the UWRF community, there is so much to learn about the opportunities that you have here. We are confident that you will continue discovering more about campus throughout your time at UWRF, but to get started, we encourage you to use this passport as a guide. In the Proud to be a Falcon folder you receive as a new student, you will find your own Freddy's Frequent Flyer Passport.
That's all there is to it! So grab your passport and get curious about campus. We look forward to seeing what you learn from your travels!
Getting to know faculty is an important part of the college experience and what better way to get to know someone than over food? We created Out to Lunch to promote student and faculty interaction outside of the classroom. Follow the directions below to participate in Out to Lunch!
Invite a faculty member to lunch (or breakfast or dinner) in Riverside Commons by asking them before or after class, calling their office, or sending them an email.
We cover the cost of the faculty member's meal and students pay for their own meal with their meal plan, Falcon Dollars, cash, or credit.
Enjoy a meal in Riverside Commons with the faculty member. Consider talking about the following subjects:
