St. Thomas at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair

St. Thomas has a major footprint around the state of Minnesota, so it's no surprise you see Tommie purple all over the 2019 Minnesota State Fair - from alumni-owned businesses to the fan-favorite purple tote bags.

Director of photography Mark Brown was on hand to capture the feel of the Great Minnesota Get Together's first day, while senior media relations manager Vineeta Sawkar swung by the St. Thomas booth in the Education Building.
