What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
I think this school is great because different majors have different difficulty levels. For example, the Nursing program here is very selective and only around 40 people get in a year, but other programs are not as selective and not as academically rigorous. The important thing to know about this school is you get out of your academics what you put into them!
Alyssa from New Richmond, WI
To get good grades require a lot of studying outside of class depending your major, but MNSU has a lot of sources that you can use for help. There's academic advisors, free tutor time, fellow students, etc. I rate the academic rigor a 3 out of 5 with 5 being the hardest because of all the help you are able to receive.
Tuan from Bloomington, MN
The academic overall is good, and easy to handle. As long as you ask for help.
Taylor from Rogers, MN
attend all your classes and put your studies first!!
Anthony from Champlin, MN
I originally attended the University of Minnesota Twin Cities for my first semester of college. Once I transferred to Mankato, the academics got a little easier and relaxed, but it is still very challenging.
