    UMN Crookston student-athlete Connor Humble, a name journalists can only dream about, shared his experience as a Golden Eagle and just how his degree landed him his dream job. It has been a busy four years for the Rosemount native, whether it be in a classroom or on the course, a double major/double minor is no small feat. Like many of our students, Humble chose U of M Crookston due to the small campus feel, where it is easy to feel welcomed and noticed by faculty and staff along with the other students.
