    SMSU is a great campus, full of life and school pride. It is small enough to feel welcome and homey but big enough to not feel like a small town high school. The professors go above and beyond for you to succeed.

    This is a terrible school for non-traditional students. There is way too much hand holding and no independence. Working full-time, school full-time and kids does not work well at this university. Professors take attendance and dock points if you don't go (all other colleges I went to never did this) as well as make mandatory outside class activities. For the person who wants to get away from their parents I guess it's fine, for those of you wanting to make more of your life and don't live in the dorms- DON'T GO HERE.

    Southwest Minnesota Statue University contains everything I had hoped a college would have. I felt at home here to moment I stepped foot on campus to tour as a Senior in high school, and as a Freshman here in college I haven't had a single regret. It's a smaller college, so professors know me by name, I get to know the people in my dorms and I feel like I can truly be successful here.

    SMSU is a college with a small town feel. It is a safe environment and the classes teach you valuable skills for your intended career path. Overall, SMSU is a good college to be at.

    The staff are very friendly. The class sizes are small and easier to learn in. The school is very nice.

    It's one of those schools that's easy to get into, easy to get out of, and relatively easy to pay for. You can get a great education here, but you have to be willing to work for it--taking 12 credits of easy classes won't teach you anything. We've got great professors and some really outstanding programs, but again, if you want it to be worth your money, you've got to put in the work.

    The layout of the school makes it extremely easy to find you classes and even better is that it is all interconnected so you never have to step outside in the freezing winter. Every faculty member and professor is extremely courteous and prompt with their email response so there is never a moment where you are lost or confused. This school made it easy to feel at home with its many club activities, caring and personable staff, and eager to assist manner.

    I'm used to living in a smaller town so I really like the atmosphere of Marshall; wish it was prettier though! The people here are genuine and friendly, and they definitely add to the whole college experience. I like it here, but sometimes it would be nice to be closer to a bigger city.
