The Morris campus history is unique and distinctive. The slide shows below offer a glimpse into two institutions that have made their homes on the Morris campus—the West Central School of Agriculture and the University of Minnesota, Morris. We hope you enjoy the step back in time.
“The good people of WCSA—teachers, coaches, house mothers, dorm proctors, even dining hall workers—all accepted us, taught us, helped us, supported us, shaped us, and turned us into decent sociable, much more enlightened people who were ready to go out into our world and make a difference. We have tried very hard not to disappoint them. WCSA did the thing that ever academic institution should strive to do: It excited us and made us want to do those things that were necessary to stay abreast of the ever-changing world that we lived in.”
