Student Profile

Alisha Hillstrom

It has been a more than a year since senior Alisha Hillstrom, Maple Grove, MN, began pursuing a bachelor’s degree at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. But it wasn’t until last July that she actually took her first step on the campus. The business management major is earning her degree entirely online. In fact, she is on track to graduate in May 2012 with a business degree that includes a minor in marketing.

Her trip to campus happened thanks to a bit of serendipity on a gorgeous day in July. “My husband and I were spending the weekend of July 4 in Detroit Lakes, MN, and it worked for us to make a trip to Crookston to see where I was going to school,” she recalls.

Hillstrom holds an associate of arts degree from North Hennepin Community College, and she wanted to pursue a bachelor’s degree but was unsure about where to go. “I am from Minnesota, so naturally, I checked out the University of Minnesota’s website,” she says. “I found the degree I wanted entirely online through the Crookston campus, and I was immediately interested.”
