Reasons for Giving
- Increasing costs threaten opportunities for students to obtain a college education.
- Each year, more students take out loans, burdening them with higher and higher debts.
- State funding has decreased and tuition is on the rise.
- Minnesota has one of the highest college tuition rates in the U.S.
In addition to providing scholarships to students, it is imperative that Century College renovate
existing buildings to keep up with increasing technology demands. We cannot do this with state funding
That’s why Century College is turning to individuals, corporations and foundations for help in
maintaining the quality of student learning and making the dream of a college education affordable to all
