University of Minnesota (Liberal Arts)
I have had a great many opportunities...in so many way and from so many people. As a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a Liberal Arts degree I was able to engage in a wide variety of disciplines including various histories, composition, art appreciation and so much more.
