University of Minnesota Rochester hosted its Annual State of the Campus address Tuesday to discuss its progress and unique educational programs.
Interim Chancellor Lori Carrell spoke to audience members about the rapid growth in enrollment in the last year.
Current and former students were able to share their personal stories on how the school is preparing them for a career in health sciences.
There was also a panel discussion to give audience members a chance to ask questions.
UMR says even though it is one of the youngest colleges in the country, it has been successful because it's built around its students.
"We have been designing ourselves differently on purpose. Using the research on how people learn and working to meet a demand in the workforce while reducing student debt. So our facilities our curriculum, our whole way of being is designed for success for students," said Carrell.
Monday's state of the campus focused on "Passion and Purpose" as the school celebrates ten years of learning.
