    MState is a secure and safe campus, with security guards throughout mid-day until late at night ensuring the safety of all.

    Greek Life

    Phi Theta Kappa and Mu Alpha Theta are offered at MState!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are numerous clubs and activities on campus that students can get involved with. For a list of clubs and activities go to http://www.minnesota.edu/?id=372 to find out more. To highlight a couple, MState offers: Student Senate, College Ambassadors, C.A.C.T.U.S., Circle K and many more!

    Great for these types of students

    MState is great for all students! With four campuses and eCampus there is something for everyone. MState students who know what they want to do for a carrer can jump into a vocational or technical program. Or for the student who doesn't know quite yet, the AA transfer degree is perfect. With this flexible two year degree students can find the path that is right for them without spending an arm and a leg.

    Bang for the buck

    MState is an affordable option for all! With 2011-2012 tuition rates being $160 per credit and online courses at $199. There are so many opportunities that larger schools cannot offer. A student at MState gets a high quality education for a reasonable price.

    What to do for fun

    Every Thurday night at the Fergus Falls campus there is a College Night. Fun activities are provided for students such as free movie night, Rock 'N' Bowl, Dodge-Ball Tournaments, concerts and much more! If there isn't a Spartan sporting event going on, there probably is a play, musical, art show or concert.

    Food and Dining

    MState Fergus Falls has the food and dining options that fit you! There are two meal plan options, a six meal and ten meal plan package offered to all students. The food is great and is available to students anytime between 8am-7pm.

    Dorm Life

    MState Fergus Falls in unique as a technical college, it does offer college housing. The housing at this campus is arranged apartment style with three bedrooms- two private and one shared, along with two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen. All rooms are fully furnished with large furnishings, including kitchen table, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, living room chairs, beds, dressers and a desk.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers are drawn to this college to teach. Small class allows teachers to get to know students and their academic track record, which allows teachers to motivate students the way students best adhere to.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared! Get in contact with MState and find out as much information from the beginning by contacting the Information Desk at 218-736-1533. In addition, all of MState's information is on the web at www.minnesota.edu

    In three sentences

    MState is a nationally ranked two year college. It's friendly staff and faculty are there to help every step of the way. Small class sizes and teachers who are dedicated to teaching as their first goal equals great academic success!

    Great for these types of students

    Non-traditional, older students will feel very comfortable. It's also great for generals for younger students to transition from high school to college life.

    What to do for fun

    There are constantly free activities, such as bowling, meals, or grocery bingo. They also work well with other colleges in the community for sporting events and such.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour. Big universities may seem impressive, but take a moment to think about how you'll learn in a room of 200 versus a room of 20.

    In three sentences

    MSCTC is a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. The small class rooms provide for individual attention and a personal relationship with staff. Staff has always been helpful, and the environment is just over all very positive.

    Great for these types of students

    Online - I would recommend MSCTC for anyone in the States looking to get a solid online education with a valid degree or diploma.

    Bang for the buck

    The price for online classes is a great value. You get a solid education, many opportunities for growth and development, and the staff are (mostly) 100% dedicated to making sure you get what you need when you need it.

    Food and Dining

    Again, no real clue because I was online only. But they do have culinary arts at their campuses and I'm guessing that like most others they take advantage of the opportunity to teach these students the fine arts of food prep, presentation, and service.

    Dorm Life

    Honestly I have no clue if they have a dorm as I was an online student, but I believe that if the put the work into dorm life that they do into other student services it's probably an A+ arrangement.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes were of the proper academic difficulty. For the online classes, be prepared to do every bit as much work as you would in a typical classroom.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep in touch with your student adviser - they really try to go above and beyond to help! Take advantage of student resources!

    In three sentences

    Absolutely fantastic online student support system. Lots of options for online degrees. Very affordable.

    Unfortunately Fergus is a small town filled with old people, so you need to make your own fun. Not much recreation in the town.

    I didn't live in the dorms, so I don't know.

    Academic Rigor

    Not extremely tough, not too easy.
