    Great restaurants in downtown Winona! Bubs, Zaza's, Jefferson's, and Betty Jo's. Tavern has the best wings in town!

    Things are not that expensive in Winona. I'd say the college is worth the money since it's WSU is not expensive at all. Almost all of the people who go there, pick WSU because it's not expensive. There are a lot of scholarships offered for you with particular major and it's very easy to get more scholarship as long as you keep your GPA 3.00 or higher.

    It is a more expensive public school BUT they provide you with a lap top (which is really awesome) and a mini iPad. The school is very technology based which ends up being really convenient because you don't have to cary around as much crap because so much of it is on your computer.

    Honestly, walking around campus you can tell why Winona is so much less expensive than other universities. It doesn't have as much to offer.

    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.
