    Southwest Minnesota State University is a great campus it offers something to all students. SMSU is very diversified and welcomes all students. A great college where students feel at home and excited to learn and grow.

    SMSU is a very safe campus. All of the staff and professors genuinely care about the students. The cost is reasonable for what you get.

    SMSU is safe. SMSU is good for education majors and PE majors. Others are welcome, but unless you are only going for cheep... it's not the best school..

    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.
