Getting a college education is a big decision. It's also a big decision deciding where you want to get that degree. If you are on the hunt for the perfect school or your child or someone you know, Wallethub made a list just for you: The Top 10 Colleges and Universities in Minnesota.

The number one school is actually one right here in Southern Minnesota! Carleton College came in as the best college/university in the entire state. So if you're looking to stay close to home when getting your education, you're in luck.

In order to determine these rankings, Wallethub looked at a few different categories:

Admission Rate
Net Cost
Student-Faculty Ratio
On-Campus Crime
Gender & Racial Diversity
Graduation Rate
Post-Attendance Median Salary

I'm pretty excited that my alma mater, the University of Minnesota, Morris, made the list! Check out the top 10 best colleges and universities in Minnesota.
