    I love the UMN Morris! Not only is it a very accepting and diverse community, but that there is something for everyone! The campus-community is absolutely amazing and welcoming. With the transition to online classes, Morris has been very thoughtful of its students with trying to keep a smooth transition as well as the professors working better with students under whatever circumstances.

    My experience at the University of Minnesota-Morris has been great! It is small so everyone knows everyone. The campus is just right, where you know everything from the library to the dorms. Morris is located in a small town, two hours away from Minneapolis. The students and staff are very helpful and friendly. The university is all about the environment, composting and recycling. Also diversity plays a major role on this campus to where no one is better than anyone. Overall, the University of Minnesota-Morris is great for anyone who doesn't like the overcrowd of students.
    It's a great college to become an adult at! The town is small and safe so it's not overwhelming. The class sizes are often small and the professors care about you and want you to succeed. I had a professor who offered me tea every time I went to office hours.
