    UMC was not on my radar or even in my research, but I'm SO grateful I ended up here. The online experience is immersive, collaborative and insightful. Each of my instructors maintains regular communication and provides feedback and truly cares about my success beyond the classroom. All of this and it's affordable too! If you are considering an online degree, I cannot recommend University of Minnesota enough.

    Minnesota Crookston is a great place to go to school. The faculty is always willing to help, and you receive a great education. If you live on campus, the housing is affordable and very nice. The meals are decent and offer a variety of food options. The school offers many scholarships to help students pay for college. Crookston is a small town, but if you are looking for something to do you for sure can find something! If not, Grand Forks is a quick thirty minute drive away!
