College of Arts and Sciences

Segment #5 from University of Wisconsin-River Falls


Maggie is an entertainer at heart. This Glenwood City, Wisconsin senior grew up knowing she wanted to attend a university where she could follow her passion for performing. Little did she know, UW River Falls would open other doors as well. She’s exploring athletics, as well as a Stage and Screen Arts major. Maggie, take it away.


– Thanks, Alex. Hey, guys. Ever since I could walk and talk, I have been singing and dancing in all of my favorite princess dresses. When applying to colleges, I knew that I wanted a college with a strong music and theater program. I transferred to the University of Wisconsin River Falls during the summer after my first year. Ever since, I knew UWRF was the right fit. Here I have been a part of the musicals, plays, and choirs. So far, one of my favorite memories was when I was one of the Kit Kat dancers in our theater department’s production of “Cabaret”. I have made so many new friends, and it let me step out of my comfort zone. UWRF not only allows me to explore my opportunities in theater and music, but I also get the chance to experience being a college athlete. When I am not in the choir room, on stage, in the library, or in a practice room, I am on the softball field. I love being a student athlete because it helps me with my time management, communication skills, and learning to grow in leadership both on and off the field. One of the highlights of my day is lacing up my cleats and gearing up to go on the field and absolutely get drenched in sweat and dirt. It really is amazing that I get the best of both worlds with the Music and Theater Department and being a part of the UWRF Falcon Softball team. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all the support and encouragement from my family, my friends, my coaches, my teammates, and my professors. That’s all from me. Back to you, Alex.


– Thank you, Maggie. Options for getting involved on campus are essentially endless for UWRF students. There are more than 100 student organizations on campus from athletic clubs, to Greek life, to academic and social groups. Student orgs engage with campus and the community, offering events, activities, and programs throughout the entire academic year. Thanks again.
