I am so glad that I went to Morris. The professors are amazing and try to learn all their students names, even if the class has over 100 kids! The town can be small but the college tries to hold dances and activities on the weekends. Definitely apply early so you have a chance to compete for a competitive scholarship.

UMM is sometimes referred to as the Harvard of the prairie due to its dedication to quality education and focus on academic progress. This statement is hard to disagree with from a logical perspective as the prairie doesn't have much to offer but to say it is elite throughout the nation is a bit of a stretch. What I have heard in more closed circles that I find to be a more accurate representation of my school is a quote from a fellow student who said to me, "Morris is for kids who were smart enough to get into Ivy League schools but were too socially awkward to make the final cut." This is something I cannot argue with. Some of the most brilliant and motivated individuals come out of out school, in fact, Morris has had more Truman Scholarship award winners in the past couple years than any other school in the nation. I have also seen students standing outside of their residence halls practicing karate in their underwear, so there's that. We are also an incredibly progressive school, strongly committed to environmentally friendly practices. In fact, our school's motto is "A renewable, sustainable education" and in the past year we have put up our second wind turbine making us both carbon neutral and energy self sufficient. This initiative makes our school an ethical choice as well as a sound investment in education for anyone. And did I mention this is all at a public school with no difference in price to out of state residents?
