The coldest college in America? Minnesota State University in Moorhead, according to a new ranking by the website College Prowler.
A report in the Huffington Post shows that nine of the ten coldest campuses are in Minnesota, based on the Prowler survey. The only outlier isn't far away: The University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire came in at No. 5.
The rankings are based on the reviews of students, one of whom said of the Moorhead campus: "The winters are brutal, and summers are too short."
That could probably describe the entire Top 10:
1. Minnesota State U., Moorhead, MN
2. Concordia College, Moorhead, MN
3. College of St. Benedict, Collegeville, MN. (There's no mention of St. John's University, its adjacent partner)
4. St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN.
5. University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire
6. Carleton College, Northfield, MN
7. University of Northwestern (formerly Northwestern College), St. Paul
