Ridgewater College students, staff in Willmar, Minn., gear up for fall semester


WILLMAR -- The activity level is picking up this week on Ridgewater College's Willmar campus as students and staff arrive for the beginning of the fall semester on Monday.

"There's just that buzz," said Sam Bowen, the college's communications director.
