Winona State University Reviews
My daughter is interested in the teaching field. The new Education Village to open at Winona State University sometime in 2019 looks fabulous. The campus has so much to offer in general. We love that WSU is not too large, but large enough to have lots to do on campus & in the town of Winona itself. The forested bluffs are absolutely breathtaking in the fall. The female to male ratio at WSU is roughly about 61.4 to 38.6% which we also like. Everyone seems quite friendly on campus & in town, in general. The college's administration is willing to answer any & all questions that people might have about attending WSU. We loved the college, & we are definitely considering it as a top contender for her college education!
Academics are decent. I'm just here to get my bachelor's and get out. I have however, never been around such a boring group of young people. This is an actual university?! The entire campus looks and acts like they just stepped out of a JC Penney catalog. No diversity. Even the hipsters are boring and conventional. Students can be closed-minded. Don't come here if you are POC, queer or don't miss high school. There is nothing to do but "party," which here means drinking in muggy frat basements with dull 18-20 year olds who've never left their backyard and think that drinking and smoking without having to worry about getting caught by mum is the definition of "lit." The music scene here is trash. There's nothing but dad rock and folk, which gets tired after a while. There is no semblance of alternative culture whatsoever and artists will fall to drugs--which are offensively subpar here.
I am currently a sophomore at Winona State. My first year was amazing, thanks to the wonderful teachers, people, and atmosphere here at Winona. He teachers truly want you to succeed in class, and will help you figure out what works best for you if you are struggling. The social life at Winona is also amazing, everyone is very nice and you never feel left out!
