Why smaller doesn't always mean less in Minnesota higher education

“Students may think that these smaller institutions can’t offer you the variety of majors that are going to be appealing … that’s off-base. … The academic options are really rich,and secondly there are so many ways to get involved at a private, non-profit college. Engagement in the college, the life of the school is maybe easier at a smaller school and that can be a real meaningful opportunity for students.”
