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 really love the diversity in the school. Everybody is really friends and caring, and seem to be very ambitious to go for the field that they're interested in. All the professors really go out of their way to try to help the students out by lending books if possible, or finding ways to help the students advance within topics they're struggling with. The food is amazing, along with the meal plans, the campus is large but still includes the student body, and it's just a great school. It was an awesome choice coming here.
