The best of both worlds.

The campus of Crown College, situated just 40 minutes west of downtown Minneapolis, is surrounded by acres of trees and lakes that gives you the space you need for refreshment and solitude... and a good game of disc golf. Yet when you hop into your car and journey into the Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area, you'll find endless cultural opportunities. So really, you get the best of both worlds.

Being on the outskirts of the Twin Cities' western suburbs means that all of the opportunities and experiences within the Minneapolis/St. Paul area—from a Timberwolves game at the Target Center to Shakespearean plays at the Guthrie—are right at your fingertips.

On a Friday night, you may find yourself watching a roommate play on stage at Club 3 Degrees during a Crown sponsored concert or a Battle of the Bands competition, or you may do the traditional dinner-and-a-movie at any number of restaurants and movie theaters anywhere in the area.

  • Catch a game at the Target Center, Metrodome, or Xcel Center
  • Get cultured at the Walker Art Center, Guthrie Theatre, Ordway Theater, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, The Weisman Art Museum
  • Take off on outdoor adventures in surrounding lakes and parks, including the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, the famous Chain of Lakes (right outside Minneapolis), Minnesota Zoo, or the Como Zoo and Conservatory
  • Listen to various musical genres at the Minnesota Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, or the Chanhassen Dinner Theater
