I think that Mayville deserves a 4/5 review because of many reasons. Mayville's classes are small, and the professors are always willing to help. The professors here are also very personal and try to push success for every student. Mayville also has great dorms to stay in. The only downside about going to school in Mayville is that there are not many places to go if you need something and not a lot of activities to do in the community. If you are looking for a small, affordable college, I highly recommend Mayville State.

Mayville State University has a small college aspect where you can still pursue several different degree programs. Mayville State's low student to teacher ration allows students to learn at a better and faster rate. They have several division three athletic programs that are competitive each year. They also have several clubs throughout classes leaving no background out. Mayville State is an excellent choice to save a little money and still receive a professional degree.
I have had a great experience at Mayville State University. It is a small town with a lot to offer. I have had all amazing instructors that seems to really care about my education. Anyone I have contacted at Mayville State has been helpful and caring. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a more intimate learning experience. At Mayville, they make you feel as if you're important and they want you to succeed!
