I really like the small campus feel. Winters are a bit harsh but it's only a small sprint from the dorms to the rest of the buildings. Otherwise everything is connected by hallways so you don't even have to go outside! Unless you want to go to Walmart or a movie. There's always something to do here, activities, clubs, whatever you feel like doing.» Read More

The campus is located kind of in the middle of nowhere and the winters are harsh but the people you meet are some of the most friendly people you will ever meet. The term Minnesota nice definitely applies to this campus. I love the small campus feel and you always feel involved in the campus and decisions that the campus makes.» Read More
