Rasmussen’s Long History in Eagan
In 1989, Rasmussen University relocated its original St. Paul campus to the former Eagan campus location on Federal Drive. At that time, Eagan was, as it remains, one of the fastest-growing communities in the Twin Cities metro. The University has served students in Minnesota for more than 120 years. The Eagan campus is one of eight Rasmussen campuses in the state.
The area around the Eagandale Corporate Center has also seen tremendous growth over the past decade, including new business development and road construction. Students and staff now have access to restaurants, shopping and even a local park within walking distance.
