Testimonials

  • Living at Coborn Plaza Apartments was a great experience for me. This was the first time I have been to school since leaving the military. Living around military and other veterans make the transition out of the military very easy and smooth. CPA offers some of the nicest living conditions that you can get in St Cloud, and it beats the barracks any day!      -Andy Stoesz, SCSU student veteran
  • Starting college was an interesting and stressful time for me. Dealing with issues such as trying to find a place to live or worrying about furniture was very stressful. I’m glad, however, that I found Coborn’s Plaza Apartments. I was able to locate a furnished housing option in a great location with fantastic amenities without having to drive around or browse Craigslist. Not having to worry about finding a place to live or worry about purchasing furniture, allowed me to focus on the important things like preparing for college and making new friends!          - Thomas Del Mastro, SCSU student veteran
