    A VERY good school and not very expensive. With my financial aid I am paying less to go to St Cloud State than some of my friends are paying to go to crappy community colleges. Sounds like a good deal to me!

    The cool thing about St. Cloud State University is that if you ride the city bus here, its free. You can go to the mall, downtown, etc. Many places and they are out late.

    The tuition and fees are understandable and knowing that I don't miss home is amazing! The classes are good and the friends I've made along the way is just a truly amazing experience.
