Two $1,000 scholarship award recipients will be announced in January and distributed for use this academic year. This scholarship is available to students living in any Minnesota State residence community, excluding current Community Advisors and Learning Commmunity Coordinators.

Leadership Exploration & Development

Each semester, students are invited to participate in a leadership experience that builds upon their existing skills. Led by the Program Advisor, students have found this leadership series to be a very useful and fun opportunity to meet others and to grow into leadership positions on our campus.
