MSUM students are doing amazing things. Our students embrace diversity, challenges, opportunities, unique experiences and continue to produce incredible results. Our students participate in student organizations, attend and present at regional and national conferences, compete at regional and national competitions, collaborate on faculty-mentored projects, gain hands-on experience through internships, help coordinate community service projects, and more. Many have won prestigious scholarships for academic excellence and many have won awards for their stellar work inside and outside of the classroom.

"Women’s and Gender Studies classes usually only have 20 to 25 people in them. It’s cool because it allows for that group discussion, which is a big part of a lot of the classes. I really like that aspect of the Women’s and Gender Studies Department." "A lot of students hear Women’s Studies and they have this idea of what it is, or think 'I can’t really apply that to what I’m studying' but it can be applied to anything. It shows that you can think about things in a different way, because the courses challenge you to do that and challenge you to think about things you wouldn’t necessarily think about. It will really help any major."
