5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at my school is the best there is coming from intelligent professors. There's nothing better then having a professor get the whole class involved in learning a subject each day. The workload that is given isn't to heavy but there is always help on campus that makes understanding everything better.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There's only two universities that offer my major of automotive engineering technician. That makes some classes I take really unique on campus and they are all very interesting learning about many things you can't learn on giant campuses around the country. It's not just reading a textbook but you get hands one experience that increases

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Due to the fairly small class sizes, a lot of the professors will know your name, and they seem to genuinely care about your future and you as a person. You may also see your professors around town, and they do not seem to mind if you say "hi." They also seem to enjoy the subjects they teach, which makes classes more interesting. The workload really depends on the professor for the class. Big lecture classes generally do not have more than a few tests a semester, but smaller classes have more assignments and are more likely to take attendance into consideration. Minnesota State Mankato is known for business, nursing, and education, but there are so many other programs you can apply for.

Many professors are extremely eager to help you succeed in their classes, individually, and as a class as a whole. Most professors are also really passionate about what they teach and are extremely interesting to listen to. Most of the professors here love their subjects, but some have problems explaining things. The foreign professors are sometimes hard to understand but that should not deter you from taking their classes, as you will most likely find them interesting as well.
