About Minnesota State

Minnesota, often dubbed the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” carries a motto that speaks to its French heritage: “L’Étoile du Nord,” translating to the “Star of the North.” In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a wave of Scandinavian immigrants chose Minnesota as their new home, and their legacy endures in the state’s culture. This significant influx of immigrants from Nordic countries has left an indelible mark, contributing to the unique accents and captivating culinary traditions found among its residents. Minnesota also boasts one of the highest levels of education in the United States, coupled with a remarkable standard of living that its residents enjoy.
