Any Door: Life and Learning

“You’ll think. You’ll do. You’ll make a difference…” Students of St. Cloud State University (SCSU) can find an opportunity to be a part of something great around every corner.  Their university distinctions are many, varied and include:

Probably their most unique and comprehensive opportunity comes from their Living-Learning Communities. In these communities, students with common interests or backgrounds take courses and live together in an SCSU residence hall. Communities are either academic-based or socially-focused and offer mentoring opportunities.

Thanks for letting us visit, SCSU! We truly enjoyed learning more about your campus and students.
