International students attending the University of Minnesota Crookston last weekend gave ice-skating Crookston Sports Center a try. 

Rae French, study abroad coordinator at the U of M Crookston, said the international students were provided some skating tips by some kids skating at the CSC, including her daughter, Linnea French. “It was cute, one of the girls gave one of our students some candy and said, "Here is for your strong effort!" French recalled. “It was really cute.”
