The Blue to Brown Connection Program (B2B) is the product of collaboration between Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) and Minnesota West Community and Technical College (MN West). This partnership provides students a specialized and guided academic experience that upholds the academic rigor and excellence present in Minnesota State Institutions. The mission of the B2B program is to provide a student-centered educational experience where diversity, collaboration, and academic success are fundamental principles and practices.

The Blue to Brown Living and Learning Community provides B2B students the benefit of living on the SMSU campus while taking MN West classes on SMSU's campus. 

How do I apply? Schedule a visit to the SMSU campus and meet one-on-one with a Blue to Brown representative and tour the SMSU campus.
