4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SCSU isn't necessarily a top-tier school or nationally recognized for a particular department, but I'm so glad I transferred here. I have yet to have a professor or instructor who isn't actively engaged in class and willing to help students in every way. I've had 10-student classes and 150-student classes, and in both, I felt that my professors were open and willing to help me if I needed it. Most importantly, I can tell that my professors want me to succeed and they seem to go the extra mile to help students who are struggling. Overall I think the school has a really engaging atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love being on campus and having my own freedom. All my professors have been really nice and easy to talk to when I need help on something.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has so much diversity! It has so much to offer for all types of people! You will never run out of things to do here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I like that I am close to home (one hour) but I wish I would have picked a school that would have challenged me a little more that I have been challenged. I would choose a different college if I could do it all over.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like the teachers and most of their methods of teaching. You have to work hard and be independent to get good grades. I think they are pretty good at transitioning you into college classes, in the 100 level courses, from high school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They have a great career center that will help you with anything from writing a resume to applying to graduate school.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are nice here but they really keep to themselves for the most part.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. They put a lot of effort in making it a safe environment

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I see a lot of people that are part of Greek life, it just is not for me.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not a lot of school spirit.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no reason to live on campus and pay through the nose when there are so many options off campus that are really cheap. Maybe not the safest but you learn to lock things up and take precautions to protect yourself and your possessions

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of options for food in St. Cloud.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They're pretty laid back, unless you park in the wrong lot. Good luck with that $30 dollar ticket every time.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Many of the scholarships are for the areas of Sciences and Music. So if you are majoring in one of those areas you have a lot more options for scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus cash is great. I usually bring my own food because everything is pretty expensive.

Off-Campus Housing: Some landlords are great, some are awful. I got stuck with a pretty awful one for 2 years, but I had no means to move. There are some awesome places to live within walking distance, though. It's definitely worth it to live off-campus. Even though my experience wasn't ideal, I'd do it again for the location. Literally a block from campus paying a little over $300.

Off-Campus Dining: Student discounts are pretty good. Mostly chain restaurants, but there are a few good local ones. Definitely not enough vegetarian options, but there are a few gems.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: From my experiences, SCSU is fairly lenient on most things. Alcohol, however, they really try to crack down on - probably because the school has a reputation as a party school and they want to try to counteract that.

Scholarships: After my parents did the FAFSA, all I received was federal grants and loans. There was no option for work study, even though I was told by multiple people I qualified for it. Very frustrating. Eventually I gave up and just accepted what I got.

Campus Food: I did not have a meal plan, but I did eat at the Grill, Subway, and Caribou frequently. Pretty much what you'd expect from a college campus. Loved the veggie burger at the grill though!!

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I only lived in the campus apartments, a few blocks off campus. They were fantastic, but kind of overpriced. I would have loved to stay there longer, but I couldn't afford it. On campus housing was pretty standard, a little older, but nice enough.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can find plenty of options, but none are going to be that great.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options near campus, most are downtown which is more of a bar scene, not as convenient for people under 21.

Administration: Most things that go on in the dorms are set to strict standards and thats why people tend to avoid dorm happenings.

Party Scene: One can find a party very easily thursday, friday, or saturday. Usually the parties are filled with dbags so you have to be choosey.
