Winona State University Reviews
WSU was a great 4 years of my life. The bluffs are beautiful and the nearby Lake allows the community to kayak and more for a small yearly fee. The campus is really pretty and has been updated in a lot of ways--there is a caribou coffee and snack shop in the library (the library is beautiful, spacious, and bright btw!), they have added another newer coffee shop in Somsen Hall as well. Yes like all colleges there are a lot of old buildings, but they have charm and history. The Wellness Center is amazing--relatively updated and very modern looking. The food court has also been remodeled and looks great as well. Overall, I had a great time at the school--true, the city of Winona is a little bland, there is the typical movie theater and a couple restaurants that aren't chains, but its a small town. Typically, people can travel to La Crosse or Rochester for the nearest mall or other adventures. Honestly though, Winona State is beautiful and a pretty great school. Go Warriors!
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.
