Dear Minnesota State Mankato Parent/Guardian,         

Smith FamilyI am delighted to have a nursing degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato. My husband and I are proud parents of two Minnesota State Mankato alumni and our youngest sons, Jimi and Anjola, are currently attending. Anjola is a junior biomedical sciences student and Jimi is a senior nursing student.

We’d like to share Anjola’s thoughts about his experience on campus, “I have a lot to look forward to at Minnesota State Mankato. I am eager to build on the skills I have acquired and take advantage of the enriching opportunities. I’ve participated in a research lab, been a part of five student organizations and will travel abroad for one of my classes. The ability to cultivate valuable experiences makes Minnesota State Mankato a place of great opportunity.”

We appreciate your support in Minnesota State Mankato’s 26th Annual Parents Drive. Please support our students and pick up the phone when the Annual Fund calls. Your participation goes a long way to support our brilliant students. You can choose to give to the Friends of the Library Program, New Student and Family Programs or any other area.
