    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.

    It's rural and not many things in town, there are two towns a little bit bigger than Crookston, one is 30 mins away and the other one is 1hr 30mins away, but you have to get there by car. There's not many students so social life is limited. There's a free transportation bus running in town during the semester, but you have to call them earlier.
    University facilities is fine, but dorms, I wish they had more study room there.

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.
