St. Cloud State University Reviews
Coming to St. Cloud has been such a great experience for me. It was a little bit of a shock coming from a different state and not not knowing anyone here. Luckily "Minnesota Nice" is really a thing, I made friends within my first few hours on campus and haven't had a problem since. The small classes are extremely helpful in terms of learning and being able to get to know your professor and peers around you. The buildings are well kept and the school does an excellent job at keeping you involved. On St Cloud's campus they are always doing farmers market, barbecues, raffles, special late night events just for students, sporting events and so much more. There is always something going on, on campus! And even if you miss it, they do a great job of advertising for the next upcoming events. GO Huskies!
St. Cloud State University is a very affordable and reasonable school. The campus is not very organized or impressive in any way, but for $3,000-$4,000 per semester, the value is incredible! I have had nothing but great experiences with the professors and students thus far. My main complaint is with disorganization in the administration and a relatively high amount of crime for a school that is not located in a large city.
I studied here through their PSEO program and overall I am very happy with my time here. The PSEO coordinators and faculty were very helpful and informational guiding me through my transition. The professors that I had very very educated in what they taught, accessible outside the classroom, and truly cared about me and my classmates. The campus is decent, very pretty in the fall, but kind of monotonous during the winter. The food offered in Atwood is pretty good, limited options albeit, but you get what you pay for. Overall, I'd say my time here was pretty good; it wasn't exceptional, but it did the job.
