Minnesota State University, Mankato is a very diverse college. As the acceptance rate is relatively high, the school brings students from all walks of life. International students, PSEO students, middle-aged students, students who don't take college seriously, and those who do. Mankato also brings a lot of temptation. The dorms are very social and the nightlife is extensive. For those who are considering attending Mankato, I would advise them to really consider their work habits and self-dicipline as the school makes it easy to skip class and lose focus. Pros of the school is the small campus, walking to class is a breeze. Also, the school is very well kept, the Centennial Student Union and certain dorms are brand new. Cons, as mentioned before, are the distractions and temptations.
