5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Due to its small size, it is easy to get help from professors at any time. Every professor has office hours which you can go in to get help. You can address professors by their first name and they are very helpful at all times.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors or your major make sure to set you up with great opportunities so that you can be successful upon graduating.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: It is one of the most safe cities and campuses that I have seen. There are really no concerns with safety, however, measures are in place in case there is a problem.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a great opportunity to become close with other people. It is cheaper, after your first year, to live off campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: While it is a small school, the environment is perfect for learning. It has a very calm atmosphere and most professors are very easy to talk to. The classes are challenging but there is always help available when needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small which makes it easy to get a lot of one on one attention from the professor if you need it. They're really good about having plenty of office hours and they're willing to work with your schedule for appointments when necessary. The professors go above and beyond for their students' success and they really want to see you achieve your goals. The only thing I don't like is that a lot of the classes are small and discussion based so as someone who hates discussion, it's really hard to hide in the numbers with such small classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Networking is really easy on campus because you meet so many people and know almost everyone you graduate with. The career services does a really good job at giving announcements about internship and job opportunities and gives you access to the job fair at the Twin Cities campus during spring semester. They hold cover letter and resume writing workshops to help learn how to do that better. Getting on campus jobs is very easy. In fact, it's so easy that most people I know have more than one job or internship.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus has police that work 24/7 on campus and there are emergency phones around campus for students to use if they need them. I've never felt unsafe walking through campus at night. It's a small town and mostly everybody knows everybody. It's well lit and buildings are very close together so it's never a long walk in the dark if you need to do it. Police will provide an escort for you if you feel you need one and they have a cell phone that you can call after hours if you need them for something that is non-emergency. Doors to all of the residence halls lock and only the students that live in those buildings have access with their keys and U-cards.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are a really great way to get to know and meet classmates, especially freshman year. They aren't remodeled or modern rooms, but they give students enough space to live and store their items. The office of residential life is pretty good about getting students a single room if they need it for medical or mental health reasons, but it's a little harder to get a single room just because you want one. They encourage you to have a roommate to meet people right away. In my opinion Indy Hall is the best for freshmen because the hallways are wider and they're straight. It's not confusing to navigate like Gay Hall can be. Gay Hall is very similar to Indy but the floor sizes are bigger and it can be confusing at first. Everyone who has lived there has loved it and learns navigation very quickly. There aren't many amenities but there are things like ping pong, TVs, foosball, and air hockey to use for free. There's laundry in every building and it doesn't cost quarters. The social atmosphere is great because there are lounges and kitchens on every floor where you can meet and hang out with your floormates and others when you're not in class.

Athletics: Athletics are not a very big deal at Morris. Our football team isn't a winning team and not many students attend the games every weekend. Other student-athletes are try really hard to go to everyone else's games and support their friends and student athletes, but students that are not athletes don't care as much about athletics. Our athletic facilities for student athletes are very good. There's a remodeled weightroom, two athletic trainers, two gym spaces, a track, a pool, and a lot of outdoor space to practice. For non-athletes there is another weightroom that is shared with community members, but it isn't lacking in much besides free weights. I'm a student athlete and I've never had a problem with professors about missing classes for games and they're willing to work with athletic schedules.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Morris is a good school for a lot of students. There are a lot of activities offered and clubs and since it's part of the U of MN system, there are a lot of resources to draw from for research, academics, or study abroad. The class sizes are small and it's a small community feel and for the most part everybody knows everybody. It is a small town and you have to be able to make your own fun to enjoy your time at Morris. Athletic teams are not top of the line, but they're fun and free to watch and there are a lot of intramural sports offered for students to make their own teams. Students are often overly involved in clubs and activities outside of class making it a very active campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors I have had are engaged in the subject matter. Class sizes range from small to large, but questions and discussion are commonplace no matter how large a class is. There is a nice variety of classes to choose from to meet requirements and allow diversity in your schedule.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are frequent emails about potential jobs or internships one can obtain based on a specified major. Many alumni have opened the doors for better networking for current students to have available to them. Job fairs and other employment opportunities are planned throughout the year. The career center has few people in there when I have walked by. I wish there was better communication for these types of things, but if a student cares, the opportunities are there if one wishes to seek them out.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Police are available to assist students and make them feel safe. People who have targeted vulnerable students are usually found and held accountable for their crime. People help to prevent these things from happening by walking with friends, or attending a party with other friends to make sure everyone has fun and is okay.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was told I would have a single room with no other roommate, but when I arrived on move-in day, someone was already living in my room. The room was a single, with two beds shoved in it. We got ants because of poor sanitary practices by our fellow floor mates. People disrespected the janitor by leaving large messes for him to clean up, failing to take care of their own messes. The floor above ours flooded because someone threw a ball and it hit the sprinkler. People don't know how to cook food, also sending people outside at odd hours of the night.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I haven't attended any games.The intramural soccer games were at an inconvenient time for me to be able to attend.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What I enjoy about Morris is its small size. Walking to class is fast, so being late is rare even with tight schedules. The dorms aren't ideal, and in my opinion, the meal plan isn't worth the money. I will be moving off campus for this next school year, and I know I will enjoy it more than being on campus all the time. Perks of a small town though, it will be easy to walk and bike to class. I enjoy the campus, especially playing pool to pass the time between classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are genuinely attached to their students and are excited about the subject matter they teach.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is extremely convenient, you can walk across campus in five minutes. The dorms are average college dorms. Pine Hall, Gay Hall, and Independence Hall are the typical first-year dorms and they are typical residence hall living. Green Prairie houses both first-years and upperclassmen and it is a newer building with nicer accommodations. Spooner and Blakely are the upperclassmen halls with typical accommodations. The on-campus apartments are a nice option for students who want to be more independent while still living on campus. The Morris website has good information about all of the living arrangements. The social atmosphere depends on the building in every case, also on the year. Spooner typically has a studious environment, Independence Hall tends to be a fun first-year hall, Pine tends to be very close as a building, apartment residents typically keep to themselves. The housing process is fairly easy.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't a huge part of student life, but games are typically attended.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Morris is a gem on the Minnesota Prairie. It is filled with unique people who are passionate about their studies and are driven to succeed in life after college. Morris is not a large town, but students can find multitudes of things to do, if they know where to look. Some of my favorite experiences have been: going to a midnight showing at out local co-op theater from the 50's, going to the farmer's market where there is live music, and checking out local art at the PRCA. If I could do it all over again, I would pick Morris again in a heartbeat.
