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.

Small classes and easy access to teachers and help is a huge benefit. As a new student, it feels like the teachers and staff really want to see the students reach their full potential and succeed. Teachers seem to make an effort to really know the students by their first name and offer help when needed. The university seems more like a family atmosphere than a college campus. The student body though small, does offer diversity and the on campus clubs reflect this. These clubs are very inclusive and welcome all. For a small campus is laid out for easy movement between classes.
Smaller sized campus. Friendly staff and students. Focuses on being real rather than trying to define the status queue. Located an a small, quaint town, about an hour from regular civilization and Walmart.
