Great thing about UMC:

The ability to get to know so many great people due to the smaller class sizes and opportunities to be involved.

Fun Fact about Crookston:
We have lots of “best kept secrets.” Everything from THE BEST old-time candy store, cute shops, awesome trails for snow shoeing or cross country skiing, and the best options for pizza around!

Favorite place on campus:

My favorite place is the Prairie Lounge. As a student, I loved going in there to study or curl up and take naps between meetings or class. It’s beautiful, quiet, and warm.


Advice to Prospective Students:
Don’t be afraid to ask a ton of questions and try to visualize yourself on every campus that you visit. The more you think about actually attending a specific place, the more you’ll be able to figure out if it is the right one for you. :)
