As a professional sales major at UWRF, I have been surrounded by a foundation of staff and faculty who truly care about my future success. Every professor I have had has taken the time to get to know me and I am able to connect with them on a personal level. This has helped me be a successful student by creating a more personalized learning environment than what you would find at a larger university.
