I’m hoping to get a feel for what’s on students’ minds, whether it’s about tuition, textbooks or the gubernatorial race. (Or cafeteria food, for that matter.)
So I’m off to attend a leadership summit today for students at the two-year colleges in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.
I hope to post some thoughts and photos while I’m there.
Stay with me.
