November 7, 2023

Deciding which college is the best fit for you is a big step. At the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) we are committed to helping our students make the world a better, more sustainable place. We believe that everyone has a role to play, it’s only a matter of finding your passion.

We highlight some of our CFANS students who took a leap from small-town life to find their place on campus.

As one of the colleges within the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, our small class sizes, hands-on learning opportunities, and career resources are available to make your transition into college life easier so that you can learn, create, and discover. Located on the Twin Cities campus in St. Paul, CFANS gives students access to big-city bustle and small town charm all at once.
