Overall Experience: Minnesota is an excellent degree seeking institution and students always strive to get the degree and even pursue further goals. The goal of every student is to get the degree and it is worth struggling for. Hard work pays off always

4 College Junior

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We all come from different cultures but the good thing is we all are always ready and happy to embrace other cultures

5 College Junior

Athletics: Where am from, we are always passionate about sports. When I got to Minnesota State university Mankato, I was totally shocked by the way everyone was so passionate about sports. During the first sporting event we had on campus, I will say everyone turned out for the game. It was a soccer game (intramural). Luckily, I was one the players due to my efficiency wit the game. I will say "Wow". this is because from all around the school, you could get the shouts coming out from the arena. It was enticing and I was so happy to be apart of the game. What a way to start your first game.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being an international student and being very far from home, I never thought MNSU will be a place I can call home. Life is very hard from where I am from and we are taught to learn the hard way usually with little or ono experience. Within my first week in Minnesota, I was shocked and at the same time amazed with the attitude and the care and attention given to me by both the students and the teachers alike. Back where am from, only the best students survived and I was lucky to be amongst the best but I felt bad for my brothers not getting sufficient help from our professors so the class was clearly divided into the top students and the bottoms students. Here in Minnesota, teachers take time to work along with all the students so I will say everyone if willing is chanced to succeed. Hard work pays off always.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our greek life isnt crazy or big. If you want to be in it, you can. Ver small and lowkey

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: our school is really good in hockey and football, hockey being D1. A lot of students and fans go to the games and support our team and school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was very hesitant when starting school in mankato. I ended up loving it and making amazing friends, everyone is so nice and welcoming. Everything is so close and easy to navigate around campus. The professors love their job you can just tell when they teach.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've loved everything I've seen so far. The class room and lecture halls are really cool. The dining hall is very efficient and the housing communities are impressive. There are four or so places you can choose from on campus, along with meal plans. There is something for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't have any experience with this yet but from what I've heard the professors are very helpful when students ask for help.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is great. If you don't feel safe walking around you can call campus security and they will escort you to your destination.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are a variety of housing communities on campus and students can choose to live off campus. There isn't a rule to stay on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know nothing about the Greek Life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I have never attended an athletic event.

4 College Freshman

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have met an incredible group of friends here at Mankato, friends with depth and intelligence. If I were to apply to colleges again, I would definitely apply to Mankato. This is because it is a relatively inexpensive yet quality education.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school was great to attend, the teachers were very nice and helpful. I didn't really talk much but I was passionate about getting my work done. I would suggest going to that school if you are really into school and succeeding.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All professors are different here just like any other school. There are some who are a little harder to understand and some that you can tell don't take to much pride in their teachings. Some aren't very good teacher but are extremely smart, some are the other way around. But most of the professors here are smart and are decent teachers. From my experiences, the quality of the information is good no matter what class you are in. The sizes of classes depends on the class you take. One of my classes only had 18 students while another one of mine was over 100. So it all depends on which classes you are enrolled in.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't really associated with much of the career services and job/internship services here on campus so I do not know much about them. I have not heard anything bad about them though. I see them everywhere on campus so I guess it cant be bad at all.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security works very hard to keep everyone on campus safe. There isn't a whole lot crime or anything like that but it happens occasionally just as it would anywhere else. On campus we have stations scattered outside where if someone doesn't feel safe walking outside, they can go to the nearest station and request to be escorted by campus security. Overall everything is pretty great from my perspective.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

MSU is definitely a school to look into if you want academics mixed with the typical college experience. Many students say they would choose to come here all over again if they had to make the decision again. The professors here love their subjects and are really understanding about any problems that may come up. The social scene is unimaginable, with something to do around every corner. The size of the campus is perfect for anyone from a small school because it allows you to be a person instead of a just a number.

MSU is known as a party school, but that's not necessarily the true reality. MSU doesn’t have bigger drinking issues than any other school, but the local residents and police call more attention to it than other places. Either way, this should not influence your decision about coming to Minnesota State. Overall, this University is a great place for everyone, the people and professors are extremely nice, and the experiences that students gain here are unforgettable. Any future Maverick will be welcomed with open arms!
