Truly a great campus with great people. Can’t ask for more can you? Want to love yourself? Go to the MAFES store and get some strawberry ice cream.

One of the best college campuses out there! I went there for graduate school (for geosciences) and highly recommend the university! The sports are entertaining (especially games at Davis Wade!!), the amenities are fantastic, the food is good, the traditions are so special, and the overall atmosphere is very chill. Hail State!
Great University for learning agriculture, mechanical engineering, Aerospace Engineering, computer science, electrical engineering and many more degrees. The more time you spend here and the surrounding areas the more you will love it. #hailstate
The BEST college campus ever. It’s so clean, beautiful, and the people here are so friendly. The traditions are amazing and sporting events are awesome! Hail State!
Beautiful campus. The drill field is amazing. It's a great place for students to gather.
Lots of debt, minimum wage student work, and uneducated job after graduation few years going.
