I am an adult student who returned to further my education at Inver Hills Community College in the summer of 2019. I am a U.S. Navy retiree who served for more than twenty years. I have spent my entire life in California, until recently, when I moved to Minnesota in the Spring of 2019 since my wife is from Minnesota. I have two young children and have been a full time student since my enrollment at Inver Hills.
