Off-Campus Housing: The cost could be a little more affordable and Winona needs more landlords that care about the students well being. I have heard too many horror stories about landlords.

Off-Campus Dining: We do not have many chains most of the off campus dining options are local and unique to Winona which can be good or bad depending on the day.

3 College Senior

Administration: The dry campus rule should be lifted. Having this rule only causes students to defy it and maybe having a limit of how much you can have on campus should be a rule, but not a rule of completely not allowing it.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid should look at a lot more than the parents income when determining how much aid you get. They also should give more for the students who really are in need of it.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: The party scene at my school is alright, I was never into house parties or frat parties, even being a member of a sorority. I personally prefer to go the downtown bars which are also okay. I feel everyone should party sometime throughout their college experience. It's a good stress reliever, whether you consume alcohol or not.

Campus Food: The smaug food is good, general food court like food. They could provide more healthy options besides what they have in cafe Kryszko. The cafeteria food could be a lot higher quality and have more variety. I think they serve the same 20 meals throughout the entire school year and it hasn't changed much since I was a freshmen.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is alright. It is very expensive for having little amenities. For my university they also require you to have a meal plan if you live in campus housing which is unfortunate. Overall it is typical for what I expected about living in a campus dorm. With how much you pay for it, it shouldn't feel so "poor college kid" like.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Lead paint is only a minor issue here in Winona. Some landlords are great some aren't. Sign early and do your research.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: This is not a college town. Despite popular belief, this is not a college town.

2 College Freshman

Administration: The shuttle is on time only half the time. Good luck getting anywhere on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Better bring lots of quarters if you do not have a parking pass.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Hope you know someone, because the second it gets cold there's now aimless wondering till you find a place.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Low quality, no variety, hope you like the salad bar.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Expect lots of noise regardless of what dorm you stay in. Pray you get an RA that actually enforces quiet hours.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I saw off- campus apartments. Not getting information. But most of the apartments were within walking distance from the college. The cost wasn't too bad i guess.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The dining was great! Winona is a small town yet it has enough to keep things interesting. The only thing that confused me was the directions we got to a pizza place and it wasn't there anymore i guess. But otherwise, it was a convenient town. Mostly everything is within walking distance from the University!

5 College Student

Administration: I think it's great how they have rules on underage drinking! Visitors as well have rules as I was told by one of the staff of the campus

4 College Student

Scholarships: My family and i got parking right on the curb next to the building we were assigned to . I thought it was great. Most of the students I saw didn't have to walk that far to get to their destinations

5 College Student

Party Scene: I don't really know about the parties, but the houses in the campus have "parties" in which they go to by the Mississippi to do various activities.

4 College Student

Campus Food: The food was very good! It actually tasted better than many restaurant foods

5 College Student

Campus Housing: It was great! the dorms aren't what i expected and surpassed my expectations! The people there were so friendly and inviting and HELPFUL!

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Come winter time there are not many activities to do but fall and summer provide good hiking and running.

Off-Campus Housing: I like living off campus. It takes alot of education and independence. I do miss just paying one cost and being and now as well as the cafe and getting meals made.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Personally I did not do much very underage drinking in a parting sense. I definitely was more chill with my own group of friends and having small get together's. I have seen people walking from and to bigger parties. I believe the party experience does not have a positive and good impact on students. There are quite a few house parties that do go on on the weekends. There is also quite a few underagers at the bars more so.

Greek Life: I am in a greek organization and love it. Our greek organization bylaws permit us from having chapter housing. Other places do offer chapter housing. Some are great housing but costly others are not so great housing but I do not know the cost. I feel many students probably think greek organization are just for partying just as I do when it comes to larger schools. I have seen frat row at the U during homecoming week and it would be hard for someone to assume otherwise unless they are in a greek organization. I believe there are different types of greek organizations, professional, social, academic etc. Therefore that can contribute to the purpose and partying.
