College History

History

Vermilion Community College located in beautiful Ely, Minnesota. We pride ourselves on our strong academic programs, our athletic experiences that we offer, our many and diverse student clubs, and of course, our friendly and helpful staff and faculty. Our campus serves a total of about 700 students � 600 on campus and the rest online or at other sites. Our student body is made up of about 68 % male and 32 % female, with most of our students attending full time. The majority of our students are from the Midwest, yet we have international students as well � this year from countries as far away as Australia and Japan. VCC costs are affordable, and we provide a living experience right on campus. You may prefer to live in the residence hall and not have to go outside during the winter months, or you may prefer to have a brisk wake-up call as you walk to classes from your duplex or college apartment. Either way, we can meet your needs. Our mission focuses on the natural world, and you�ll get a taste of that as a student in Ely. From Natural Resources or Outdoor Leadership Programs to the Liberal Arts, and from taxidermy to dog sledding classes, you can study in any of your desired fields while getting out in the field. Our hands-on approach to learning helps students get a real flavor of the natural world that surrounds us.The past is future at Vermilion Community College. The college is located in northeastern Minnesota, where humans have been using, managing, and conserving natural resources for 10,000 years. Today, students come to VCC from all over the country to explore the natural world; train in current natural resource and wildlife management practices; engage in research for government agencies; learn to �leave no trace� as they traverse the portages and camp along the waterways of the BWCAW; and become lifelong learners, ethical researchers, and politically astute citizens who understand their role �in a changing world.�
