Attention Concerning Upcoming Events :
As of Thursday, March 12, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota made the decision to close all in-person classes on all campuses as a safety precaution due to the threat of COVID-19. Due to this news, please note that all events on our Winona Campus that were scheduled to occur before April 13 are currently canceled. Any events scheduled after April 13 will continue as scheduled at this time.
Please check our Events Page for updates on the cancelation of any off-campus events.
When students aren’t on campus pitching their ideas or enjoying our guest speakers, they are engaging in on-site visits to entrepreneurial ventures or competing in regional competitions.
Last spring students from SMUMN, WSU and MSC Southeast collaborated in the Winona Student Startup competition.
