For Engineering and Computer Science it's an excellent value and rigorous IF you do your own work. BUT -->

For most other majors it's huge grade inflation resulting in unexpectedly low skillsets comp...ared to a UMN graduate for example especially in writing. Five years of reading the campus newspaper, student edited bulletins memos etc, and volunteering in the Write Place has left me disheartened. Career center is excellent.

Socially, if your child feels like an outsider and does not imbibe there are many opportunities to connect with hundreds of student organizations.

Very culturally diverse. SCSU international students benefit an program that provides in state tuition(MN pays 45%) to international students in exchange for participation in some cultural awareness activities. For this reason there are many elaborate country focused cultural nights with skits & dance & song & food. Ex. Nepalese night (largest), Korean night etc.

Community College feel. SCSU has no homecoming or other spirit type event that draws Alumni. Wrestling & Hockey teams are excellent despite cutbacks. If you are underage and drink you will get a minor or multiple. All Greek life is dry as well as the entire campus. Police are very aggressive compared to UMN also in Saint Cloud all keg purchases must be accompanied by a $6 keg permit obtained from City Hall. This coupled with the frequently busted parties means under age students only drink what they can hide discreetly on their body while walking around the Southside neighborhood. SCSU students, especially females exclusively drink hard alcohol.

Free bus service including to the downtown bars. Also the fitness room and group fitness classes are ample and inexpensive.

Unfortunately, the environment is rather toxic. If you are liberal it will be so uplifting as your ideals will never ever be challenged. You will learn that you can always get your way if you are good at organizing social media campaigns and protesting. If your are a prospective parent take a tour of the education building and the signage outside the professor's doors and on permanent display; it is extremely politicized. Noticing the thick concrete Brutalist architecture around campus I cannot help but recall this quote from Vladimir Lenin, "Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted".

The campus and surrounding area are rundown and ghetto. It seems they have a policy of get them in and get them out as soon as possible and while taking as much money as possible. Not to mention, is only one tutor per semester at the tutoring center. That is not enough for the thousands of students that attend. See More

I went to SCSU for my masters degree in higher education administration. The in-person, weekend format allowed me to continue working full-time while going to school-an opportunity no other higher ed.... program in the state could offer. I was challenged academically and professionally, and made some fantastic friendships with my cohort!!! It was truly an amazing experience. See More

I may be biased, but that's because St. Cloud State has earned it! I spent a long time from start to finish, changing direction and path a few times, and in the end I'm #CloudProud to be a Husky! Great faculty, opportunities and education in an affordable package! See More

St. Cloud State was a life changing choice. As a transfer student, they had the resources and expertise to help get me back on track to graduate on time and help land me a job right out of college. Th...eir Mass Comm TV broadcasting program is one of the best in the nation!

Their orientation events help tremendously with meeting new people... found some lifelong friends!

Thank you St. Cloud State and the City of St. Cloud for welcoming me and helping me find myself.

Saint cloud state has allowed hate speech to become a form of free speech on campus

Really disgusting that the administration let students put up hate posters disrespecting immigrants and members of the LGBTQ+ community. One of them reads "Marriage is between a man & a woman, support... traditional marriage". I'm sure that makes all your gay or trans students feel great about themselves. Unbelievable. See More

i am surely hoping that this professor of yours is no longer employed, at his trial your university was "taking steps as per protocol" shameful indeed to employ such a monster

Yiwei Zheng, a phil...osophy professor at St. Cloud State University, has pleaded guilty to illegally dealing in goods made from elephant ivory and rhinoceros horns worth up to $1.5 million

A philosophy professor at St. Cloud State University pleaded guilty Tuesday to illegally dealing in goods made from elephant ivory and rhinoceros horns worth up to $1.5 million in a case that wildlife authorities say is one of the biggest they’ve investigated in Minnesota.

Yiwei Zheng, 43, was indicted by a federal grand jury last year after prosecutors accused him of smuggling the items, which are covered by federal wildlife laws, from the U.S. and into China from 2006 to at least 2011.

Investigators used seized records from Zheng’s home to establish the fair market value of the goods at more than $1 million, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Provinzino. As part of his plea agreement, Zheng agreed that the items were worth between $550,000 and $1.5 million.

SCSU has all the benefits of a large and small school. With the experience and knowledge SCSU provided me I got hired at a dream company at age 21 just 2 days after graduating from here. Also, tuitio...n was not nearly as expensive as other universities, which is allowing me to payoff my loans in less than 7 months. I loved all my professors in my program (biomed) and all of them took the time to know me. I also was able to be apart of research there for 2 years in the new ISELF building, a biology tutor, lab prep assistant and a teachers lab assistant. I definitely had to work hard, but it was completely worth it! See More

Take down the racist “wall” in Atwood Memorial and suspend the college republicans group until they know how to voice less violent opinions.

Today is the first day that I can truly say I am disappointed to be a husky. Today, Saint Cloud State University announced that they are cutting the night security program from residential life.
With...out this program there is virtually no way to keep track of the students. With night security gone, this means that fights can break out at any time without someone right there to intervene. Without night security there could be someone passed out drunk in a hallway or a stairwell and have no one to help get them to their room safely. Without night security there is no one around required to help out if some innocent person is getting assaulted in their dorm room. We know that 1 in 5 women will be assaulted during college. We also know that women are most vulnerable during their first year of college. With all of this being said; it's also important to note that SCSU has the HIGHEST number of sexual assaults in the MNSCU system.
I would like to ask the people in charge of making these decisions a few questions. How do you intend to keep your students safe without night security? How do you intend to bring your numbers of sexual assault down? What is your plan? How will you respond when acts of violence and assault numbers rise as a result of this decision you have made?
The decision this school has made was a reckless one that pays no regard to its students. It's not right; and I will not be silent about it.

The Professors are there for the students wanting to make sure they understand the concepts that are presented in class. The more effort and questions you have, I have found that they are wanting to h...elp you to quench that knowledge and seek even more answers. The Professors are all approachable and genuine- asking for assistance for scheduling or setting up a tentative schedule is the best way to approach the goals. See More

Curtwan Evans should not be allowed to attend SCSU. He absolutely should not be allowed to play football in the fall, but this university is allowing a guilty man who horribly beat another student to... return to the football team. He is a danger to the other students and should be banned. See More

Totally STUNNED that Curtwan Evans was reinstated for the fall semester. He was quilty. I saw the pictures of what he did and how he damaged a good family and a young man's entire year (He had multip...le facial surguries) and his psych. Fellow students, beware. This says a lot about the University. See More

Across the street from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis is a building that symbolizes the fight for equality for women.

We mark Women's History Month by recalling the Strutwear Knitting strike of 1935-36, in which nearly 900 female workers gained membership in the American Federation of Hosiery Workers and were critical in forcing the company agree to most of the strikers’ demands.

The building is on the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places. #WHM2018
