Not to mention, it’s located next to beautiful Lake Superior and the boundless adventure of the North Shore.

“I like how our classes are designed to be student-centered. More often than not, our professors are teaching because they’re passionate and skilled at teaching their subject, not just because they’re high-quality researchers.” — Peter Dvoracek, Teaching Life Science major
