"The best way to find out if a campus is a good fit for you is to go see it!"
“The best college tour we have been on.”
“Amberly from admissions was my tour guide and she showed us the barn and everything having to do with all the animals which was very impactful on my decisions, because no other schools show their animals or barns/equipment during tours.”
“Paul (Admissions Counselor), he made me feel welcomed and important.”
“Rae (Student Ambassador) was extremely helpful and so willing to answer questions. Was very honest and gave you a true insight what life at Crookston us really like.”
