The G.R. Herberger Business School at St. Cloud State University is one of the top business colleges in the United States. Whether you’re a budding CEO or just really have a thing for cardinal red and black, St. Cloud State is the place to be. With approximately 17,000 students enrolled, SCSU is the second-largest university in Minnesota, so you’ll have no problem finding a future business partner (fellow hacky sack buddy) at this impressive institution. St. Cloud State University offers more than 200 academic programs and 250 great student organizations—just think of how fun it’d be to join Break Dancing Club and get down with meteorology and film studies majors. With all that SCSU offers, you’ll be so proud to be a Husky, you’ll be inviting Blizzard (the school mascot) over for pizza.
The library in the Miller Center might be a great place to do some research, but it’s not really fit for lounging around in sweatpants with a bag of pork rinds. Lucky for you, there are great apartments available off campus so you can avoid getting horrible looks from librarians. There are a few multi-unit complexes around SCSU’s campus, some offering amenities like pools, spas, and fitness centers. If the freedom to choose your own furniture and daily spa treatments sounds preferable to RAs and doors decorated with themed nametags, start looking for an apartment ASAP. 58% of SCSU students surveyed by College Prowler said off-campus housing is “totally worth it.” Be sure to check out our college life guide for help dealing with roommates who really do nothing but sit around in sweatpants, eating.
The folks at St. Cloud State University encourage you to “Think of the world as your living laboratory.” If running around town unleashing pent-up energy sounds like a good experiment, you’ll be a regular mad scientist at SCSU. Take a ride on the Metro and prove your hypothesis that “a college student in motion will stay in motion no matter how many chicken wings he consumes or how hard he dances.” Head over to MC’s Dugout Bar and Grill and chase down a week’s worth of ramen noodles with a Hairy Buffalo. Afterwards, stop by Rum Runners for a night of comedy that doesn’t involve dipping your roommate’s hand in a bowl of water. One thing’s for sure: there’s plenty of fun “experiments” to be had around SCSU’s campus.
