Too many adjunct professors. Classes were not as rigorous as I would have expected.

Minnesota State University, Mankato has professors that are involved, rigorous, and caring about all of their students. The professors take the time to get to know all of their students and address them by name. They have a genuine interest whether you're learning the material or struggling with a topic. They are personal, without being too personal, and are always there if you have worries or questions. With the recent issues going on in the government, all of my professors and the President of the University made it their goal to communicate with all of their students to let them know that they (students) are safe, they are welcome, and they are always a priority no matter what their gender, race, or sexual orientation. I have never been around more considerate professors and individuals.

It was a good school focused on learning by doing rather than theory. Very based on hands on learning.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

I really enjoy the relationship I have cultivated with my professors and that they are always highly accessible. Negatively, I do not feel that Mankato or the surrounding towns have much to offer by way of industry and competitive technical positions, but it is an affordable place to live when compared to those other locations.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program that I am enrolled in has been an amazing learning experience thus far. The professors are all extremely competent and have a strong care for their students. The way the courses are structured provides students the opportunity to delve into the class material and grow as people as well as in a way that allow students to make strong bonds as friends. I would highly recommend this program to anybody who has a passion for helping and working with students. The only con I would have for the College Student Affairs program is the the coursework. I feel as though it could be more meaningful in the sense that it seems a little bit looked over.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

Financial aid is incredibly difficult to procure.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Program is perfect for someone working in Higher Education or who wants to be a Leader in an educational setting. Specifically, as there are 9 credits to do an emphasis (your elective) it's possibly to customize your program to great effect. Cons: (at least at my Campus) the class one day a week thing is very draining.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I am privileged to be part of an exciting graduate program that lets me learn and bring my talents and skills to the table. Taking those talents and skills by enriching them to perfection to take on the world by storm. I will walk into an audition, casting call, or job interview with the "I can and I will do" attitude and not be intimidated by my surroundings. The Masters of Arts in Theatre program is preparing me for that, and I pleased of the current progress. GO MAVS!!!
