    Personally I think that MSU-Moorhead is a very well priced school. It averages about $15,000 a year, including everything but books and supplies. But $15,000 for tuition, a meal plan, housing, and student fees? For a State University? That's a steal! MSU-Moorhead is a great school, with great credentials.

    A great college atmosphere with friendly students, faculty, and community members. Students can ride the bus for transportation and the MATBUS system takes you around Moorhead, MN, Dilworth, MN, Fargo, ND, and West Fargo, ND. Moorhead State University Moorhead is a medium size campus so it's not too big of a school where you can get lost nor is it too small of a school that it reminds you of high school. The city itself is a nice, friendly, and quiet city - great college city, really!
