“Mankato has so much to offer. Bike trails, parks, River Hills Mall, Minneopa State Park, and lots of concerts and special events–there are so many opportunities to be involved off-campus.”

“The thing I like about Mankato is the size. It’s small enough to be comfortable getting around in, but it’s large enough that there’s always something going on.”
