    I like Itasca because the school is a smaller community allowing people to get close with one another and with professors which makes it a great learning centered experience. The Itasca area has some amazing landscapes and structures that I like to go to for beautiful views and the winters here are amazing. The Viking wrestling team has a group of guys with their head on their shoulders. We are all dedicated to similar goals on and off the mat. We are ready to come out firing. --DB
