Unlike others, I have a very different experience at Metropolitan State University. I am an international student from Nepal who was admitted to Minnesota State. I wanted to graduate from one of the top schools in the United States, so I tried transferring to the University of Minnesota; everything was going well, but at the final moment I was unable to transfer because of an error by my university. However, I had packed my bags and was already present in these lovely Twin Cities.

Later, I changed my mind from going back to my old school to staying here in the city. I already had a bunch of good memories, personal connections and loved the city. Then I looked on the Internet for the best schools here in Minneapolis. Metropolitan State kept popping up again and again along the way. I did not have any personal reason to join MSU, but after I joined here, I was happy about my decision.

The best thing for me about Metropolitan State are the staff and faculty members. It is a blessing that I chose Metropolitan State. I have never had such a great experience with my professors at other universities. Professors here are friendly. They help us, the students, with things beyond the courses like offering tutors, letting us know how to build up skills, etc. I am not sure what I will be in my life. Regardless of the industry I will join, I know I am going to apply my skills learned at Metropolitan State.
