Explore your future with a visit to M State during Minnesota State Month.

October is Minnesota State Month and a time to explore the 33 colleges and universities that make up the Minnesota State system, and M State is one of those colleges.

Come and visit us for a campus tour, attend a registration event, or talk to an advisor to discover how M State can get you started on your journey to your dream career.

There’s no cost to visit, and no cost to apply.
