The College of Saint Scholastica

The College of Saint Scholastica, a private school with Catholic roots in Duluth, Minn., has significantly increased its enrollment in recent years. It now has about 2,600 undergrads and close to 1,600 graduate students. The health sciences school is by far the college's most popular, with programs in exercise physiology, health management, health sciences, and social work. But health sciences is just one of six schools, which offer a total of about 75 majors and minors. All incoming Saint Scholastica undergrads get some form of financial aid. A number of student groups focus on religious study and faith-minded service, but there's a range of other organizations such as Bee's Knees, which maintains a honeybee colony, and the crochet and knitting club, which helps students relax while picking up new skills. The college's main campus is in Duluth, but there are also campuses in several other Minnesota towns, among them Grand Rapids, Rochester, and St. Paul. About two and a half hours north of Minneapolis, Duluth offers a variety of both cultural and recreational activities on the shore of Lake Superior. But you'll want to make sure you're on campus for the All-School Holiday Party every year.
