University of Minnesota-Crookston

Crookston, MNwww.crk.umn.edu/
Only half of the 1,800-person student body at the University of Minnesota-Crookston attends the public college IRL -- the rest are online. But both groups of people get good deals on their education, given that the average annual cost is lower than the national median, and graduates' salaries are higher. One of the five campuses in the University of Minnesota system, UMC truly embodies its motto of "Small Campus. Big Degree." Students flock to the school's business, marketing, agriculture and health programs, and report that professors truly care about them. The workload isn't terrible, which leaves UMC students with plenty of time to check out Golden Eagle games and join organizations like the Dairy Club or Rodeo Association. Students also have easy access to Grand Forks, North Dakota, where they can watch hockey at the Ralph Engelstad Arena or bar-hop downtown. But in terms of your wallet, perhaps the best UMC perk is that you don't have to buy a laptop -- the university issues them to full-time students for free.
