The transition from backpack to briefcase.
The Luther College Rochester Semester is a new program intended to take advantage of the exciting opportunities available a mere sixty-five miles to the north of Decorah. Rochester, Minnesota is currently in the early phases of an economic development initiative of a scale unique in the state’s history.The program will provide a platform for students to engage in high impact, career-related experiential learning. Drawing on the College’s expansive alumni base in the area (one that includes professionals in all areas of business, industry, the arts, and sciences), students will have unique access to immersive learning opportunities designed to help them discern their callings, acquire concrete, job-related experience, and facilitate career networking. To complete the 12-16 credit program, Rochester Semester participants will also enroll in two courses taught by Luther College faculty, and focused on the Rochester community and the unique changes it is undergoing.
