Saint Cloud State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
This college is what you make it to be. The business school has a pretty good local (MN) reputation and the finance program does place at some very very high level firms. The only thing that will hold you back is if you don't actively seek out the opportunities. This college won't just serve you up to a company the way that the U might. You really have to engage the teachers and the clubs and the programs. i loved my experience and am very proud of my degree. My career profile is in no way hindered by this degree. I recommend the business school to anyone, but yeah, the town itself really isn't that great.
My college is a great and affordable college that offers a lot of study programs. The professors are excellent and they offer a great environment for students.
I thought this was a decent college. They have a great art program that is an affordable option in comparison to University of Minneapolis or Minneapolis Institute of Art. However, they do not offer a Master's program in art. Their printmaking, photomaking, and wood working areas are great. They also have a lot of interesting courses offered there. Nice computer lab too. The only thing that I found annoying about the art college is that it is in an old building and there isn't too much room around in comparison to the newer buildings for music and science. They have their own gallery and bring in lots of fun artists though. There is a telescope at the science building and that is pretty cool because they open it up to the public on specific days of the year. I really like their astronomy classes and Native American history classes too. Huge gym with a rock climbing wall is nice. They offer good student discounts on buying new computers there. Great library too, good options for food at Atwood. Overall, I had a good experience at SCSU and I do recommend going there.
I loved my college experience. All classes taught by professors not grad students. Good class sizes. Go huskies!!
I chose this school as it was far enough away from home but still only an hour away. My parents didn't want my to go to a large university and get lost in the crowd. This school was still large and I feel like I was just another number. For a science degree I wish I would have just gone to the university. I didn dance at SCSU which was a great opportunity also I had a few other opportunities such as being a TA and being involved with a few clubs. These might not have happened going to a larger school
I loved it here. There were so many things to get involved in and so many actvities throughout the week and weekend. I love that the campus is big but small enough to walk through easily, especially in the winter with all of the skyways. It does have a reputation for being a party school, but I did not have a problem with that at all. I had challenging classes and still had fun without getting distracted by parties every night. I miss it a lot and wish I could do it all over again.
I loved it. The teachers were great, campus was beautiful, and watching college hockey was awesome!
Has a bit of a reputation for being a party or drinking school but it really isn't any more so than any other school. Depends on who you choose to hang out with and your own priorities. The science program was very good and I have heard excellent things about the teaching program as well. Campus is relatively easy to navigate. Some really great professors and some not so great professors when I attended.
The program is fairly competitive with other schools. I did not think that the Math department was great. Aside from one or two good professors, it's a terrible department. Math is an integral part of Meteorololgy, so be prepared to do a lot of extra studying on your own. The Meteorology program itself is fine. I learned most of what I needed to to be successful at my first job.
Communication Studies department was great; however, the St. Cloud area was far less than ideal. I've only heard bad things from people about the school, which echo my experience there. I couldn't wait till I could leave. Luckily, I found the Communication Studies department and just took my classes out of there because I did not like the rest of the school (or the region in general.
