Price is great. Staff is awesome and easy to work with. Small campus with big feel. Great area with a lot to do outdoors and shopping. Friendly students. I wish there were more work study jobs or jobs on campus. I live in Duluth and have to drive to Superior and it’s not great in the winter with the bridge and hills. But it’s do-able. All in all, a great campus!

I love it here! Such a fantastic college, and loving staff. Easy too make friends and find new places to go! No matter what college i went to look at this was always going to be my topic pick, because it felt like home, and I knew this was somewhere I knew I would be safe to be myself and open up too new things that i've never done before. It's overall been such an amazing experience here my freshman year and I cannot wait for the rest of the years here to finish my education.
I'm currently a Sophomore Environmental Science Major, and I can say I love being on this campus. The teachers are easy to talk to, and most, truly care about their students success. It was also the college that enabled, me, a first-generation college student with little to no income with enough financial aid to attend college. This college is on the smaller side, if you don't mind knowing some of your peers, but big enough to stand out. The dorms are average, and the campus food is good, but there could be more options available. People on campus are very kind, and accepting here. Utilize SSS and other services available on campus if you're a first-gen student. Overall this is a great school to attend, and I have no regrets.
