Free or Discounted Events


A recent conversation with Chancellor Van Galen prompted an email in which staff benefits were outlined, including the following note:

"As follow up to that conversation, I am pleased to inform you that beginning with the Spring Semester, the UW-River Falls University Theater will be offering two-for-one discounts for UWRF staff/faculty for their play performances.  Additional details will be provided in Falcon Daily later this semester."
