Minnesota State University, Mankato Reviews
I really enjoy all that the school has to offer in terms of extracurriculars. There’s always intramural sports you can do with teams, and there’s a huge gym and rock climbing wall. There’s always stuff in the student center going on as well. There’s plenty of organizations and clubs to get involved with, as well as Greek life, which I am part of. Being in a fraternity has completely changed my college experience for the better and I don’t regret coming to his great school one bit!
When I first started at Minnesota State University, Mankato I didn't plan to stay. Ii wanted to finish my general education requirements and then transfer out. One of the first business courses that I took was a business preparation course and through it I was able to meet some of the faculty and staff. I now have three faculty and staff members that I consider mentors and they have provided me with opportunity after opportunity to pull myself out of my comfort zone and strengthen my skillset. I'd love to see more students take advantage of all the University has to offer!
So far I have been very satisfied with my experience at Minnesota State University Mankato. Although I didn't expect it, the smaller size in classrooms offers an easier way to communicate with other students and professors to get a better understanding of the material. I have taken advantage of this opportunity many times to get a better understanding of the material. The diversity at MNSU also allows many students to interact and learn from one another in such cases where they may not have ever had the chance too. Interacting with different students allows each of them to gain a different perspective than what they came into the college with.
