So far, Minnesota State University, Mankato has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am learning that everyone is here because they want something better for the future. We've got big ideas, and we want to share them with the world. The professors that I have are extremely friendly, dedicated to the education of their students, and are very accessible. My peers have been more diverse than I was expecting, and that's amazing. Diversity displays open-mindedness and acceptance. I have found a few little niches for myself along the way as well; it's amazing how easy it is to get involved! I can't wait to see what the future holds for me here at MSU.

I am a sophomore at MNSU. I just got accepted into the nursing program- YAY! For my first two years I had general education courses and the professors were just that. They were average, some better than others- especially in smaller classroom sizes. I am excited to see the difference in professor to student relationships come this Fall when I am taking classes more focused on my major. The worst thing about this school is the requirement of taking general education courses to fulfill goal areas. These are required to graduate. It is definitely a way to make you take classes you don't really need for your major, and helps the school bring in extra money. There are awesome places in the library to study. There are light therapy spots which are great during the Winter months. I recommend taking advantage of the tutoring center! Not many students do, but those who do can definitely vouch for it helping their grades.

Going to sporting events is always fun because so many people get involved and the atmosphere is wonderful. It also is enjoyable because our teams are fairly decent so winning is a common theme. The facilities are mostly up-to-date besides the football stadium but there is rumors that they might be redoing it. Overall, I have no complaints and will continue attending!
