I am a college freshman at Mayville State University, and I am loving school so far! The professors are so kind and helpful, and there are lots of different things to do on campus! It is small, but you can get to know so many people, and build great relationships with them!
I have only toured there, but I loved it! I had a great tour guide. It was specialized to me because I got to meet with someone who was in the education department which was what I am interested in as a career. I also got a free shirt, waterbottle and drawstring bag. I got to tour everywhere! Nothing I would of changed.
