4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are crimes that happen around campus, but there are also a lot of cops patrolling around the campuses. They are even walking around campus to see how things are going. There are booths on campus too where there is a telephone where students can call if they feel like they are in danger. I see cops driving around all the time to make sure the students are safe.

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from the University of Minnesota is big! The University puts a lot of time and effort to make it the best possible experience for their students. They want what is best for them and their future. There are job and internships opportunities online where students can apply to and see what is out there for them on and off campus.

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus at the University of Minnesota. From the outside, they look pretty decent! I am sure the rooms are small and big, depending on the building, and how much it costs. I did not dorm because it was very expensive and I could not afford it.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't really associate myself with the Greek Life. You can tell who is part of the Greek Life thought when you are walking on the campus. There are two blocks on a big street full of greek houses and you always see students outside with red solo cups and always laughing and conversating with one another. I don't really pay that much attention to the Greek Life and I never notice anything that they do on campus to help out the school at all, but I am sure they put a lot of time and effort for their houses and the school.

Athletics: When there are big sport events on campus, students are always informed about them and they are always being talked about by students and staff. Emails are sent out to every student and posters are up everywhere. The team performance is great and they put a lot of time, energy and dedication every game they perform. They make everyone proud and everyone supports them. The school spirit is amazing and students are always thrilled to attend sporting events and cheer for our school. Its great to be surrounded by all of the school spirit.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have learned a lot about myself as I started attending the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. The community is very generous and I feel welcomed from everyone there. It made me grow more as a person and discover my long term goals and what I want to be when I am older.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe the campus does a great job to protect it's students and they offer a lot of protection to students and providing services through security.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Even though the costs of living is very expensive it makes it easy to meet people and make friends. The rule can be pretty strict and sometimes CA's don't even give warnings before writing up.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not a big deal on campus and are mostly only seen as valuable for their parties most of the fraternities have houses but none of the sororities do.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are well supported here especially the hockey and football games which bring many people to the games.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many great people who work together to help each other get further in classes

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had an excellent experience with professors, TAs and courses.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I feel confident I will be able to get a job in my field immediately after graduation due to the education and skills CSS has provided me with.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been great, I think CSS has a great campus and wonderful professors.

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Students are very uninvolved in athletics

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A big issue I have with drinking and the rules for campus is that if you're intoxicated you shouldn't come back to campus because you can get a minor even if it means staying at a frat house. One of the girls on my floor told me that and she had to stay at some random persons house. Either way she was stuck in a bad situation that she put herself in, but there were no good options for her.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Honestly I love the fact that they have put in multiple of the blue Emergency response lines around campus, as well as seeing campus security driving around all the time, and also that they offer the service of being walked to and from your dorms or to your car for late night classes if you call them. It's also pretty well lit up at night on walkways so you feel more secure.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are nice. The classrooms themselves are improving since the school is doing a lot of major updates. Professors are usually pretty fair and straight forward.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being a second generation student to go to MNSU it's awesome and being in the Law Enforcement program gives me a strong background and lets me work on my skills before I get to P.O.S.T. training to become licensed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Proximity is great. But the value that I'm paying for proximity isn't worth the space that I'm getting to be on campus. As well as rules not being enforced equally. I got in trouble for being "too loud" with my friends over at 11:30 when quiet hours are at 11:00 pm on weekends. But my suitemates (who live on the other side of the wall) only got a warning when its 1 am.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports complex at the school at nice compared to some of the high schools around here but they do need to be updated. I like the volleyball courts around campus but they do need to be cleaned out of rocks and debris before it starts getting warm again

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the learning environment and the Law Enforcement program we have here. I like that they are working on updating the campus and adding new buildings to accommodate students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far it has been great, professors are helpful and learning is fun.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Good program, wish it wasn't in my hometown.

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!
