What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Take advantage of the free visit- If you're accepted and live out of the area, UMM will reimburse you to drive/fly out to Morris and visit the campus. Take a tour and sit it on a few classes in your major/minor to get an idea of the curriculum and the faculty.
Seth from Morris, MN
Be sure to come and visit the campus. You can even request to stay overnight in the dorms with a current student. It gives you the first hand experience of what living on campus is really like.
Rebecca from Milbank, SD
Morris is a very secluded city, with the closest big city being Alexandria, 45 minutes away, so be prepared to find ways to entertain yourself in this small town!
Xavier from Sartell, MN
If you are thinking of coming to Morris, visit the campus during the non-winter months! If you are looking at it online you really can't see how absolutely beautiful the campus is!
Though I do advise also looking at the program you are thinking of going into, and check out what kinds of classes they offer to make sure it is related to your interests.
I also encourage all first year students to live on campus! As the University is much smaller than that of the average University, the connections you make during orientation and living on campus are very important!
Jordan from Morris, MN
Stay overnight with a current student. I think this is a general rule for any prospective student who is seriously considering a college. It's a great way to see what college life is like on that particular campus. My overnight experience was one of the main reasons I ended up choosing Morris.
Also, get to know the admissions counselors here. They will remember you. You are more than a face to them, you are a name and someone that they'd love to see on campus as a student in the coming years! Also, many of them are Morris graduates, so they not only have experience at Morris as an employee, but also as a student.

Mostly the standard college stuff: take challenging, rigorous courses in high school, do well on your ACT, show uniqueness, and apply for the competitive scholarships! The competitive scholarships are very helpful in paying for college. Also, sit in on a class and meet with a professor in the field your interested in, and ask as many question as you like! The professors love prospective students (probably because they are proud of where and who they teach!).
Robert from Browerville , MN
Apply for scholarships! Make connections with students on your floor, and off of it. Get to know your RA; especially at Morris (we call them CAs), they really do genuinely care. Get outside after classes and meet people, and don't go home on weekends (not at first, anyway). Also, sign up for as many activities as you want! Get involved! The more involved you get, the more likely you are to work one on one with professors. When you work with professors, you establish a personal connection, and at Morris, professors are known for having excellent connections outside of Morris and even outside of Minnesota. The more connected and involved you are, the better your prospects are for getting an internship or a job in the future!
Taylor from Hastings, MN
Start looking for scholarships and grants as soon as possible! This goes for any college, not just Morris.
Brace yourself for the wind!
When you go on a tour of campus, don't be afraid to ask your guide questions.
Have fun and hope to see you on campus!
Anonymous from Twin Cities, MN
Sign up for everything and then tone it down. It's a lot easier to juggle things freshman year, and then tone it down when you find something you like.
