I like the small close-knit school environment, it enables you to get to know your professors one on one, and also gives you that first-hand help with your school work and assignments. Overall my experience at M-State has been a good one and I have no qualms. The teachers are respectful and are willing and open to answering questions (in regards to school work). Students are respectful on our discussion panel boards, which makes the overall experience at the school a great one!

MState is a wonderful college to attend whether you just graduated high school, you're in the workforce and need more education, or you are trying to climb the ladder in your current career.

The Professors at MState are active listeners to each individual. They are always willing to lend a helping hand so students can excel! Also, because class sizes are smaller, professors are able to get more one on one time with students. During class hours lectures are thorough and very easy to understand. Whenever students do not understand, Professors are available and easy to talk to!

Every staff member at MState works their hardest to make sure students get the best out of their education. They go to great lengths to ensure the best college experience into every student! The professors, advisers, administrators, and janitors all work together to ensure quality!
I enjoyed the fact the Minnesota State Technical and Community College was an excellent and inexpensive place to get my generals done. The teachers I worked with were focused on their student's success and motivated to help students outside of the classroom if need be. However the Fergus Falls campus was unfortunately not extremely helpful when I faced harassment from a fellow student. I felt as if faculty were trying to make a difference but they did not provide me with the resources I needed to feel safe. Other than that negative experience, MState is a good place to complete your generals, meet local friends, and introduce yourself to college.
