    Pros

    Small School. Some faculty worth learning from.

    Had to commute between the Coon Rapids campus and Cambridge campus. Instructors more concerned about being friends with students than teaching. Instructors refuse to change and adapt unless they get something out of it. High turnover of administration

    Stay there and actually change something
