Students from MSB Blaine Visit the State Capitol to Share their Story with Legislators
Business Law Students from Minnesota School of Business in Blaine, attended Minnesota Career College Association Hill Day to learn about legislative processes, and to tell their story about why they chose MSB. More than 190 students, staff, and faculty from Minnesota Career Colleges across the state also attended to express their support of choice for higher education.
Students and staff from the Blaine campus had the opportunity to meet with Senator Pam Wolf, who represents District 51, where the Blaine campus is located. Students told their stories about their educational path, and why the type of education offered at MSB is right for them. They also expressed their concern for keeping state grant funding for for-profit institutions, and that the student should be able to determine which college their state grant funds will go to.
The Business Law students were able to relate their experience at the capitol, to the topics of laws and regulations that they’re currently learning about in the classroom. According to Eric Stier, a student in the Business Law class, “I found this experience valuable because it educated us on a topic that isn’t always discussed in schools or in regular conversation by my generation.”
Diana Igo, Campus Director at the Blaine campus, was very pleased with the participation from the students that attended Hill Day. “This was a invaluable experience for our students and one they will never forget! We anticipate several students and staff will return next year,” she said.
