They’re baaaack! College Students

The  college students are back! With the decline of industry, Duluth depends on its college students. We have three colleges:  Lake Superior College,  College of St. Scholastica and  University of Minnesota Duluth. People have mixed feeling about the students. The colleges keep our town full of vitality, but in some neighborhoods the rate of home ownership verses rental to college students is very high. And with no parents supervising these young adults, parties at all hours of the night abound, as well as unkempt yards.
