I love my university because it's centrally located, wonderful staff, and amazing student services. I really appreciate this college because it's so easy to become discouraged about the process of school, but when you look up there is always a warm and welcoming university facility or staff there to help you. Thanks Metro State for being just amazing!
Review Metropolitan State University - Minnesota
There are incredible professors here who really care about knowing the students interpersonally and helping launch them into success after graduation! The resources here are top-notch also. If you're looking for a job or worried about the look of your resume, the Career Resource Center is standing by to help you through that process. Overall, a really great school if you're willing to overlook the traditional college experience and focus on your academics.
Great faculty, students, and locations. I loved every minute here! I found the students and staff very supportive.
