Minnesota State University Moorhead Reviews
I love both the classroom size and the professor involvement. My advisor has not only helped me every step along the way, but she was a crucial part of why I wanted to get my human resource minor! She is open and honest about each class, and has helped me to lay out my schedule in advance in the best way possible. I am able to have such a good relationship with her because of the size of the school!
My experience at Minnesota State University Moorhead is unlike any other! The campus is a very inviting environment; there are always events going on whether it is sports, diversity, or arts. The professors give off a warm, caring aroma. No student should be afraid to ask for help from their professor; they are always willing whether it is through office hours or email. MSUM offers many ways to help students succeed; from tutoring to the Wellness Center for physical health. The campus is just the right size, not too small yet not overwhelming as well. As soon as I visited MSUM my senior year of high school, I knew it was home. Though, what I would like to see change is the exclusion from some activities held on campus. For example, they have activities that exclude some students from clubs or learning communities. I wish for more equality in allowing all students to be involved. Otherwise, I believe MSUM is a great place full of opportunities for students to further their education.
When I started the hunt for the perfect campus, I accidentally heard someone taking about MSUM and decided to take a look, it was a great decision. The campus is small and a close knit community. Everyone here is so nice including professors, advisors and upperclassman. Never be afraid to ask questions around campus as everyone are willing to help you out. The one experience that struck me the most was move in day, there were volunteers standing outside each dorm hall waiting to help out. The atmosphere was welcoming and warm, helped freshman feels comfortable in our new home. Student life is excellent at MSUM because there is always something for you to do. There are so many chances to make new friends and be familiar with the community. Overall, if one is looking for a small, warm and close knit community to be apart of, do make Minnesota State University Moorhead a place to visit before making the final decision.
