Minnesota State University - Moorhead Reviews
Review Minnesota State University - Moorhead
I'm so glad I chose to attend MSUM. It has a small town community feel in a urban area. Everything on campus has easy access, and the campus mall is wonderful regardless of season. The dining hall has a pretty good variety of food, along with the six different restaurants located in the student union. There is a great variety of classes, and my experiences with professors have all been positive. The campus is near several grocery stores, which comes in handy. Public safety is quick to arrive if you ever need help, from wanting an escort across campus or jump starting your car. Overall, I'm very happy with choosing to go to MSUM!
I know housing seems expensive, but it is such a great way to meet friends, be close to campus, and stay involved since you are most likely on campus more. The renovations they are working on are excellent! The housing process is a smooth transaction. You can always go to someone if you are having troubles!
I just transferred to Minnesota State University Moorhead this fall from a small community college. I had the expectation that the class size would be huge and the professors wouldn't care as much about personal lives of the students. I was way off. I walk out of every class I have with a smile on my face even after an hour and a half lecture. I feel more connected to this school than I did with community college. The class sizes are bigger, but the professors try their best to have everyone involved in discussions. Moorhead is known as the best small city in America, and I agree. You have a large population but it feels small enough to have a lot of personal relationships with people, just like campus. I would definitely choose this school again. It's refreshing wanting to go to class and knowing I am taking in information that will actually benefit me in my future.
