2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The quality of off-campus housing is highly dependent on which place you choose. Certain places are known to throw parties often. Also the price is generally around the same price, but most places don't offer single apartments so I can't speak too much in this regard.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a decent amount of off-campus dining options, but a lot are chain restaurants or fast food places. The few restaurants that aren't chain are reasonably priced in my opinion. I only know of one place that offers a student discount, but I don't eat at most of the off-campus dining places.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I cannot rate the party scene because I don't go out and party. That being said people often seem to figure out how much partying they can do on the week days before it starts to affect their academic life.

College Sophomore

Administration: In my experience campus security is only ever seen when someone has broke the rules and had security called on them. This is to be expected, but the outcome seems to depend heavily on which security officers get dispatched to the location. Also when I lived in the apartments owned by the university I was told that security wouldn't be dispatched to the apartment building and that complaints just went right to the local police.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: From what I remember, most of the scholarships are from the different departments. While this is nice because it helps to cut down on the competition, it leaves people who have not been accepted into a program unable to apply for most of them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The university has only one official dining hall but it has some other places to get food in a food court in the central non academic building. The food at the university is about the quality of what you would expect university food to taste like. There isn't a whole lot of variety and it gets dull eating the same food repeatedly. Also it is hard to eat healthy when eating at the dining hall, as most of the food is unhealthy and the healthy options are rare.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: In regards to the on campus living it seems to be really dependent on which of the resident communities you happen to be living in. Some of them are relatively new, being made or owned by the university for only a few years. These newer ones tend to be nicer than the older housing, as is to be expected.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: food is great in the CSU

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It is a great way to make friends and get involved

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Our off campus housing has many different varieties to choose from

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: our off campus dining center is a little spendy but has many options

3 College Freshman

Administration: Our campus is strict but not too strict for the students

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was a little confusing but i ended up getting through it

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a good party atmosphere here.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't like how we have the same exact food options at the caf every day. I wish we would have healthier food instead of having everything deep-fried.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus lets you meet people much faster and forces you to make friends with others. The one downside is having to share a room with someone you may not know.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: not a huge fan of the process

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: there are a lot of parties on the weekends

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus so I don't know much about it. There are many options though that are around the campus that one could live in. I have heard good and bad things about living places. I guess it all depends on what apartment you choose to rent.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places that you can eat at off campus. Some take student discounts which is nice. There are some of the same restaurants but overall there is a good variety.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It seems like they would be strict with all of the rules that they have but overall it isn't really strict. A lot of the time it depends on the CA and how strict they are with the rules and if they enforce them or not.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is alright. this is my first time applying for it and it took awhile and it was a pain to deal with. I had to go in couple of times and get things figured out. There were times where I wasn't told I needed a certain paper filled out or to have my parents sign something the first time around. So it wasn't the most smooth process.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties so I wouldn't know where good parties are or the party scene. I stay in and study.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!
