3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere of the town where my school is located is pretty chill. There isn't really much attractions, but there are lots of small stores and eating places.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit at my school is pretty good, some people are involved and some aren't.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Having a major like mine you come across a lot of nice nerdy people. I am also pretty nerdy so it makes me happy to have and know similar people that are in my classes. My classes are pretty mixed gender and age wise.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: We have so many different courses offered on campus its crazy. You can take your major classes and take generals that have nothing to do with your major like Japanese Culture. The curriculum for the most part is pretty interesting when it comes to what we are learning. The workload isn't too bad, but again it depends on the class.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The students at my school are actually pretty nice. There are those few, who could care less about who you are, but for the most part it is a pretty friendly campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are great and really helpful. The class sizes depend on the kind of class, but so far I have liked the sizes I had.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are not that many on campus jobs that are not work study.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love how close the housing is to the classes. The dorms are okay, could be better than they are, but I suppose that is just me. All of the dorms have their downsides, but they also have their perks.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, but I have been looking for off-campus housing. Most of it seems reasonable and affordable, most of it not too far from campus and public transportation is almost at every corner.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I dine out every once in awhile because the cafeteria food gets old. It usually is just to a fast food joint.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I don't go to parties but I hear that there isn't a lot of parties going on.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus is pretty strict. You have to be careful so that you don't get into trouble

College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know anything about Greek life.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Because I'm an international student there are limited scholarships I can apply for, but because I'm international MSUM gives me an automatic scholarship for just attending the university and this means that I get to pay in-state tuition. This saves me so much money and is also the reason why our campus is diverse.

3 College Junior

Academics: There are good opportunities but it is very competitive. The work load depends on the professor but some work is very tedious and does not help me. Most of the work I have learned will help me be a good teacher.

3 College Junior

Academics: The professors are mostly good, I have come across some terrible ones though. There are many elementary education majors so there is an emphasis in the department. There are good opportunities to teach abroad and we have good choices at where we do our practicums.

College Junior

Athletics: I'm not involved in the athletic life on campus.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: I did not enjoy the campus dining hall during my freshman year. I have heard that it has improved, however from my experience I noticed that there were not that many healthy options. There was a salad bar at all times but no fruit except random days. Pizza was served everyday and cheese pizza was sometimes the only vegetarian option, besides a salad. The drinks in my opinion were disgusting. No fresh juices and only sodas. The juices that were available was pretty much sugar syrup. However the hot dishes were pretty good. I liked the breakfast menu where they make fresh individual omelets. Sometimes they had good stir fry. Rarely did they offer seafood. Pork, beef and chicken were popular options with every meal.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guys on campus can range from outwardly flirty to creepy. The guys on campus are mostly from the area. Have similar interests such a hunting and fishing. But there is a range of other hobbies and interests.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities such a the gym on campus is great, and there's are various hangout spots and places to eat, however I wish there were more cooler spots to hangout. The main lounge in the CMU is not very comforting, even though the facilities around it such as the dragon compass and subs and sweets are places to buy food. The library on campus is amazing, it's new and modern and a great place to have group studies. There are lots of event on campus but I attended most during my freshman year.

3 College Junior

Facilities: There isn't anything that special about my school. It's a small campus so you get to know lots of people, and they tend to be pretty friendly. There isn't a lot of diversity on campus compared to where I came from, but for a small town there is. My favorite things about MSUM is it's teaching program. There is a lot of built in practicums for gaining experience in the teaching field which some universities lack.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I have never been a victim not has anyone I know of sexual assault. On campus there are various locations where an emergency button can be pressed and public safety will help you. Public safety drives around every night and offers rides to people walking alone. I've walked alone at night and have never felt scared.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: My housing experience was great. My RA was always there to help me out. The rooms were larger than I was expecting, it did not feel like I was living in a closet. However, I was lucky to be placed in East Snarr , whereas the other dorms were quite small. The housing department cleaned the bathrooms every morning except on the weekends, so the bathrooms were usually pretty clean. The showers were not cleaned often, and became pretty disgusting sometimes. The housing department was prompt with work orders, when my blinds were broken and when I needed a new mattress, both were replaced in less than 24 hours.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Underground-3 restaurants (pizza hut, burgers, and The Hot Spot)

other general convenience stores

Diversity: There are groups for LGBT, and many different ethnicities on campus. I think they do a good job of helping everyone find a group to support them and understand these individuals.

MSUM is focused on academics. Countless former students have reported being happy they chose this college, but there are always ways to make a good experience better. Just like anything in life, college is what one puts into it. The more students become involved and study, the more they take out of it. As long as a student doesn’t become trapped in the tendency to go out and party or not do their homework, then they’ll be fine. There are many different ways to become active. Most students who have joined clubs and organizations and have become active have reported that it has made their college experience much better.

Fargo-Moorhead is a fun community with many events going on. Fargo alone has over 40 parks so students can always go and take a walk along the river, play catch at any of the parks, or gawk at the sunbathers. The main problem with Fargo-Moorhead is the weather. The winters are brutal, and summers are too short. However, the University does a great job of keeping students warm and entertained during the long winter months.
