    Winona is considerably cheaper than other MnSCU schools. There's room for improvement with a few things like food and things to do for fun.

    Winona State gives you the bang for your buck. At many larger Universities you are taught by teaching assistants until your junior or senior year. At Winona you have real professors who have earned their doctorates. The class sizes are realistic and all of my professors thus far have been willing to help me after hours with whatever I was struggling with. Winona State also has a new wellness center and gym that I go to frequently and it is always kept in good condition!

    Winona can be loud or it can be boring, depending on the weekend. But if you try hard enough, there's always something to do.
