Students share their stories with state leaders

Thanks to all the students who participated in yesterday's round table discussion at the U! For over an hour, students from a variety of colleges shared their personal stories and challenges with Governor Mark Dayton, Senator Al Franken, University President Kaler, and Larry Pogemiller, Director of the Office of Higher Education.

Each and every student was very impressive. Even more impressive was their determination to complete their education and secure a better future for themselves and their families. Many work 2 or 3 jobs, some are single parents, and others served our country in the service.
