What I really like about Minot State University is how this University is one of the cheapest school that really gives students around the world a chance to be able to enter college. Especially for those who are financially having a hard time. Another thing I really like about this university is the feeling of being connected with everyone. With the small community in Minot, you really get to interact with lots of people and learn about the different diversity.
