    This place is great for students that want a small-town feel. There is not much to do in town compared to the big city but there are definately places to go. Downtown Fargo and Moorhead has a great nightlife and a quaint coffee-shop atmosphere during the day. The campus is compact so its almost impossible to lose your way to class. We sport two on-campus coffee shops in addition to a great cafeteria with diverse foods. As a freshman you will be required to take some sort of meal plan but dont fret--being on campus is an amazing thing for a first year. Take the time to get to know your teachers and fellow students.

    The community at MSUM, the closeness of the campus and the atmosphere of nearby Fargo made this school an effortless choice. I drive ten hours to get to school every year but I keep going back.

    The atmosphere on campus is great. The school is big enough to offer many options for classes and majors, but small enough that you will always recognize people in your classes. The students are very friendly and laid back, and are continually holding doors for each other. Minnesota Nice is definitely showcased at MSUM.
