Minnesota State University, Mankato Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near MNSU?
Minnesota State University, Mankato was the first public college in America to be headed by a woman; you’re sure to be ahead of the curve at this four-year university, as long as you spend more time studying than playing “Angry Birds.” This progressive university, located in Mankato, Minnesota, is the third-largest in the state. Despite boasting such a large student body, you can be anywhere on campus in 10 minutes, so you better come up with an intellectual excuse for being late to class (e.g. “I was attacked by a murder of crows”). Don’t just take all this from us: according to the school’s motto, you’ll “go further than you thought possible.” Just leave “ride a Thoroughbred through the library” off your list of goals.
Minnesota State University, Mankato was the first college in America to offer a Master of Fine Arts diploma in Forensics. Whether you’re interested in investigating crime scenes or merely tracking down the best pepperoni pizza in town, you’re going to need a place to keep your stuff (and sleep of the food coma from all that cheese). Luckily, there’s plenty of off-campus housing big enough to store your lab kit and/or collection of empty pizza boxes. There are some affordable townhouses and multi-unit complexes in town, but space is limited. Just check out our apartment hunting guide for help finding an apartment suitable for impromptu acapella renditions of “Umbrella.”
Hit the Streets
Now that you’re a Maverick, why not deck yourself out head-to-toe in purple and gold and hit the streets of Mankato? Invite Stomper the mascot out while you’re at it. Hop onboard the Stomper Express and show them there ain’t no party like a College of Allied Health and Nursing party (or whatever school you want to rep). A game of pool at Boomtown is the perfect way to make up for a grueling 40 page essay. When you’re done here, visit Pub 500 and sign up for team trivia (The Unstumpable Stompers, anyone?) You’ll never run out of fun spots to hit up around MSU.
