    It is a great place to earn a degree and grow as a person. The people there have done nothing but support me in my pursuit as a student-athlete. The small class sizes are great and there is a family feel on campus. The only downside is the cold winters but not much of a price to pay with the degree and experience you receive.

What the University of Minnesota Crookston says

    Rae French says

    We are a small and friendly university with lots of activities to experience. Getting to know others here is easy and you will make strong friendships that will last a lifetime. Students here receive one-on-one attention from faculty, staff, and administration.

    The School is small so getting to class is only minutes away whether you live on or off-campus.

    Students have a high rate of employment after they graduate and in part it is because an internship is a requirement for most students.
