Students should attend Ridgewater because it offers so many great opportunities for students. With a wide range of technical programs for individuals who prefer more of a hands-on program plus the ability to obtain a Liberal Arts degree which can transfer to a four-year program, Ridgewater offers what you need for success.  Our instructors truly care about student success and are consistently available to help students in any way possible. Ridgewater is the perfect transition for high school students and career changers. It is also a great opportunity for students looking to continue their knowledge. Ridgewater is the place for you!

Why students should attend Ridgewater:
Students should consider Ridgewater College for many of the same reasons why I enjoy working here.  Ridgewater is a warm and inviting campus with excellent facilities, amazing academic programs, with faculty and staff that embrace the "student first" philosophy.  From the moment that you step onto campus for a visit, to the day that you graduate, you will have felt welcomed, continually supported, and motivated to succeed.

Why students should attend Ridgewater:
Students should attend Ridgewater College to receive a high-quality education at an affordable price. I love all the educational options that Ridgewater provides to future students. We are a great stepping stone for those that want to move onto a 4-year university after completing their Liberal Arts Degree (AA Degree) or go directly into the workforce after completing a technical Diploma or AAS Degree. As a former graduate of the Willmar Campus, I really enjoyed the small class sizes and instructor availability to help me be a successful student. This was very helpful groundwork for me to know what it takes to be successful when I transferred to the 4-year university.
