St. Cloud State University Reviews
I went to SCSU and majored in Accounting at their business school so I can speak to that. The accounting professors all come with prestigious backgrounds and were able to provide an outstanding education in the related field. The social and career clubs at the business school were robust, inclusive, and incredibly helpful on three fronts (academic, social, and post-graduate). I was able to schmooze with recruiters and partners at various firms and by the time I graduated, I was able ot take my pick. Heavy party culture off-campus to the point of being dangerous. Please, go out and party, but just be careful and know your limits. Strong support for student-veterans and a robust veteran's culture on campus.
Once again, your experience may vary.
