What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Has a very good atmosphere. A school that is not too big nor too small. Good learning environment for those who want it.
Tuan from Bloomington, MN
Mankato is a great campus with a ton of things to do and enjoy. Every time you think you have seen it all you find something else to occupy your time with. This campus is a great way to discover yourself and meet new friends and great people.
