4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My experience at Minnesota West has been very convenient for me. I work part-time at two jobs, so being able to take online classes really was beneficial to me so I had time to make money as well.

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far at Minnesota West has been outstanding. I have only attended one class in the classroom, otherwise the rest have all been taken online. I will start to take all my classes in the classroom in the fall of 2015.

Online Courses: Online courses are a great way to enhance the career of students. Some students do not have time to sit in a classroom and take classes as they have children and/or jobs. Taking online classes is very beneficial as you can work at your own pace. Most instructors give students a couple weeks to complete a unit, which is very beneficial to those who have other activities going on outside of school.

Student Body: The student body is very diverse at Minnesota West. There is a majority of African-Americans and a mixture of male and females. All are their to pursue their general education courses, and most move on to a higher degree.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition at Minnesota West is okay. I feel that $5,000 per year for tuition is reasonable, but the added expenses for the nursing program is almost outrageous. The financial aid office really helps with filling out the FAFSA form.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: The quality of the career of nursing is great. There are also many new job opportunities for nursing and I have talked to a few alumni, who say their work at Minnesota West really benefited them at their job as a registered nurse.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Nursing is a very good program to get in to. It is competitive to get accepted into the nursing program here, as the program can only take a certain number of students. The workload is quite a bit as classes are only held twice a week. The facility and rooms used for the program are suitable for the amount of students involved. There are internship opportunities and many job opportunities as a nurse.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academics at Minnesota West are suitable for those attending the college. The class registration process is very organized and easy to do. The professors seem to be trained in what they do and are easy to understand.

Career Services: The staff help you find a transfer school or a career path after you graduate or as you near it. I do not know much about alumni network or job prospects at the school. You'd have to attain a MA if you want to teach at a community college in subjects like english, science and the like.

Campus Quality: Canby doesn't have any sports teams from the college, no gym and no real library on campus. I wish there was a library because then I could check books out and not have to buy off amazon.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I don't know very many students on campus because i'm an online student. Lots of boys at the canby campus though because of the wind/tech and diesel programs.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Just wish there was more money for summer semesters.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Most of my professors will reopen a test if I'm missed it for a good reason. And most of them will open assignments if you forget to hand them in to the dropbox on time, but you have to have a reason, no "oopsie, slipped my mind" stuff. I've only ever missed one test and after an email to my prof he reopened it and gave me full credit for my score. The professors are really nice and accommodating most of the time.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I love MNWest. I would prefer it if I didn't have to transfer to get my BA. I love the staff, the online classes, the close-ness. And if I need any help I can just go to the canby campus and get help and even buy my books there. MNWest has done a lot for me, I've become a great student and made the Dean's list too, so motivation isn't too hard when the school you attend makes you feel comfortable and happy.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are a lot of different class choices, but the Canby campus is wind/tech focused, but you can always take courses through other mnscu institutions too. I've taken a course through another college and it was just fine.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I'm a completely online student. I love the setup MNwest has. I think the d2l system and star ID works really well. My workload is 15 credits right now and it's very do-able online. My professors are really good and most get back with comments on assignments really fast. If you need help most students will help you too.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The canby campus is great. The staff are all really nice and helpful. The LARC is great when you need to print off some material or just use the computers there. The ladies in the front office are really nice and always helpful, they'll learn your name and always make time for you.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are two computer labs on the Canby campus and 3 ITV rooms, a printer you can use in the LARC, wifi is usually pretty good. I would recommend bringing a computer to ITV classes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: From what I have seen, everything seemed okay, but it wasn't anything exceptional.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I am completely online with all of the classes and never was using a computer on campus or had to use their networks or printers.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I am unsure of the variety of students, but in my courses it was mainly mothers. For the most part, we did not discuss our ethnicity, politics, or religions.
