UWRF needs more administrative effort to support students with disabilities

Student involvement suffers at UW-River Falls

October 14, 2022

As UW-River Falls gets back into the swing of things, student involvement is still low. UWRF has struggled for the last few years with student involvement, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. The need for students to actively participate in clubs, however, feels the same this year as the last. 

The end of COVID-19 at UWRF?

September 23, 2022

With the start of the 2022-2023 school year at UW-River Falls, students are experiencing, for the first time since 2020, a semester free of COVID-19 restrictions. The university was almost completely silent on the issue of the pandemic, save for a few emails and a brief article.

March 7, 2022

Colleges are often associated with debt and high prices. There are usually fees to apply, whether accepted or not, and unexpected fees that come up along the way.

What is our university doing to retain its students? Frankly, this complex question is not unique to UW-River Falls, universities everywhere grapple with how to improve their retention rates.

Question for the culture: Valentine's Day edition

February 8, 2022

Every year on Feb. 14, Americans celebrate by sending cards or love letters, writing poems, giving gifts such as chocolate or flowers, and sitting down for a meal at a nice restaurant. Many people see Valentine’s Day as an occasion to spend money and offer expensive gifts to their significant other. Have we lost the true meaning of Valentine’s Day?
