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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I hear a lot of negativity towards the caf. It isn't the greatest but it isn't the worst either. The biggest problem that I have with it is the fact that they serve the same food over and over again. They do have some variety but not all of the time and so it does get old. The quality is alright. It usually isn't my first preference when I want to go and eat.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living close to my classes and it's an easy way to make friends! I like that the washer and driers are free and that it is on each floor in my dorm. We have many opportunities to meet new people and make new friends in the dorms. There are also many people who can answer any questions that one may have at the front desk, or in any of the housing departments as well.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: If you know the right people then the party scene can be great. There are still parties that randoms can show up to but it's all about who you know. Its a great way to make friends and relieve the stress of class.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: You know it's not the best quality of food, but when you pay a decent amount of money you're going to eat as much as possible to get your monies worth. After awhile it did get old though.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed leaving on campus. Even though the dorms were small the community is what made it fun. It was easy to make friends and always have something to do.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sometimes feel safe on campus and sometimes not. During the evening/overnight hours, it's difficult to walk by yourself because of unlit pathways and such.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The campus hub is always slow around the needed times, but they always try their hardest to get the work done as fast as possible and get you the money you need.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is always on top of anything that is going on in school. Policies are pretty much always followed.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There seem to be many different options for Greeks at school. Greek students are most of the time viewed as preppy or partiers compared to other people.

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!
