The Malt-O-Meal (Post Cereals) factory is situated nearby and — fun fact — our entire campus smells like cookies are in the oven when cereal is in production. Oles enjoy walking to and from town on nice days or catching rides on local buses that make stops on campus and throughout downtown Northfield.
