I like it just fine, I'm a STEM major and I've met many professors that really seem to care about their students and what they are teaching. Most of my major classes are very challenging and most electives are pretty easy, and I really appreciate that I can focus on what I want to study. I've also tried things I would have never thought of; like rock climbing and swing dance class, both free! I would say it's an alright place to live and get your education, however, many of my peers are very loud and destructive, but I usually feel safe walking around campus.
I love studying at this school. There are a lot of resources for students. There are also so many opportunities for everyone, from school to meeting new people. I think the school works hard to make itself a good environment for everyone and I appreciate that. The professors are very supportive and will give you options for help if they themselves are not able too.
I personally love it here at Minnesota State, the only problem I have with the college is the lack of activities, but that is due to the COVID-19 restrictions and not the college decisions. In the beginning of the 2020 semester the WiFi connection was very questionable, but they made it very easy to fix and took all complaints and fixed the connection the following semester.
It is an average school with a large party scene. With Covid it has been difficult to get to know the professors and other students. I plan on transferring because the music department isn't all that I'd had hoped it would be and I would like to do more field research instead of laboratory research.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Minnesota State University-Mankato is 62%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to take online classes offered, as a PSEO student because there were no college credit classes offered at my highschool, it could have saved me alot of time and money upon arriving at college. I also would have told myself to look into nursing schools around the state to know what I needed for credits before attending Mankato.
I love the Otto work out center. The ability to have computers mounted with exersize equipment is great.
My classmates are energetic and interested in the classes offered here at MSU.
I wish I would have known about the social aspect of the college. A lot of people consider this college a party school and I might have been more leary about coming here than I was when I initially applied.
The worst thing about this school is the lack of commitment it seems like many of the undergradutes come here with. The students don't set the bar high enough for themselves so it makes the university as a whole look as though it is dropping the ball when in fact it is the students themselves doing the damage.
This school is fun, exciting good learning environment to get a good education.
Some of the classes are too big. I prefer small classes. Some professors only grade exams and it's hard to bring your grade up if you don't do well on exams.
MSU- Mankato is best known for its Division 1 Hockey team which has done very well in past years along with the relatively closeness of all academic building to one another. Many of the off campus houses are only a short walk to campus and all classes are near each other too where students don't need to drive from class to class.
someone who is out going and likes to be involved in many different activities. also someone who want a smaller campus but that is still alot of fun.
Mankato is a great school but if you are the type of person who doesn't want to try at anything then you are going to flunk out and you should not attend this school. The classes are difficult, so you must be willing to put forth an effort.
I like where I go to school because the campus is very diverse. The student population is represented by a wide variey of races and ethnicities. I believe the facutly at Minnesota State Univeristy are a lot more helpful than they are at other universities I have visited. The professors want to see their students succeed and will go out of their way to help their students.
Minnesota State University, Mankato has a great environment both for education and meeting new people. It is a friendly school with many students but a small town atmosphere. The people are great and the campus has many opportunities for entertainment and education.
