Note to self…

Have you made your New Year’s resolution yet? I have lots to consider, but one I really need to work on is remembering things. My list-making skills are not stellar and, even when I do make a list, I forget the list all together! In 2015, my goal is to write down every thought I have that begins or ends with #NoteToSelf…man with post-it note on his forehead

You, on the other hand, are probably great at remembering things. Just in case you are more like me than I realize, I’m giving you a few things you should remember about Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) for 2015:

If those facts don’t have you considering MnSCU in your educational and career goals, maybe the fact that you would get an extraordinary education at an affordable price will convince you.

Still have questions? MnSCU’s online support center is available seven days a week and weeknights until 9pm to answer questions and guide you in creating a plan for your education and career.

Happy New Year!
