    I believe that the students that attend St. Cloud State are getting what they are paying for. There's a beautiful campus, lots to do, and plenty of places to get a job. There are also a lot of on campus resources including free help finding a major, help with resume and cover letters, you can get help at doing better in interviews and much, much more.
