Scholarships: I wish I could have gotten a little more from the school for academics, but I still got a decent scholarship for academics and in the art department.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food is always tasty and there is enough variety. The mongolian grill is great. Subs and sweets could improve a little.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing could be cheaper, especially compared to off campus options, but you get a lot of room in the dorms. Cable and wifi are included which is a plus.

Scholarships: They dont really tell you something is wrong until they have to put a hold on your account.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced it yet.

3 College Freshman

Majors: An internship as well as various volunteer hours are needed for my degree.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our teams aren't particularly good but no one cares.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't go out to parties, so I am unaware of how good a party is.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have plenty of options for college students to use there student ID cards for discounted meals. Restaurants around this area are conveniently close and there is plenty of different places you could go to.

Athletics: Because MSUM is a Division 2 school we do not get enough funding for nice equipment or nice facilities. For example MSUM has two basketball gyms, but basketball practice starts at noon and goes on until five. I am a track athlete and our practices start at 4:30pm, which is unreasonably late, we are unable to use the second gym because of volleyball practice, or cheer practice. Our facility does have an indoor track for when it gets too cold outside, but it surrounds the main basketball court where MSUM holds all there volleyball and basketball games, so if there is a game track has no where to practice. It is unfair to the track team that we don't get an equal amount of time to use the facilities we have. It would be really helpful if track had a brand new indoor track facility. But like I said we don't receive enough funding for these kinds of projects. MSUM has a ton of school spirit, every weekend the place to be is at the Athletic building for a volleyball game or a basketball game. I love my school very much. I believe that we are still growing as a school athletically and things will be more organized for the athletes in the future.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel that our campus strictness is very good. Every instructor I have had so far has kept attendances and you are only allowed to miss a certain amount of class, otherwise you start losing points on your grade. The parking strictness is excellent. I received my first parking ticket this summer, and I didn't read the sign. They have signs all over campus that clearly state the days and times that you are not allowed to park in that area.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This University has done a good job maintaining the housing on campus. I love that the housing on campus close to all the lecture halls where classes are held. The campus is really gorgeous in the fall time when all the leaves are changing. The dorms are not in horrible shape, however they are a little outdated and I think that some residence halls should be renovated. The residence hall I am living in used to be an all men's dorm our bathrooms have urinals in them, and the basement is really old.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
