University of Minnesota is truly at the heart of the medical world! All of the programs are designated towards making the students better medical professionals. I am very confident that my experience at this school will help me find to a nice line of work once I graduate. One of my favorite things about the school is the small size. The teachers will know my name and remember me for years to come, rather than just being a number like at other universities.
I love the apartments! They are absolutely gorgeous, although the rooms could be a little bigger. The appliances are up to date and the community is overall clean. I'm so glad that I have an apartment over a dorm so I can cook my own meals, do my laundry, and share a bathroom with two other females. It makes the college experience much better. As for the community, everyone is friendly and helpful. There are no major issues.

UMR has a great academic program for those students who are willing to work towards it. It is an advanced academic program that focuses solely on health sciences. It is great if you know what you want to do or have no idea because the degrees they offer have a wide range of variety for possible career options.

The professors there are very dedicated to watching you grow as a student and they want you to learn and do well. Many hold 'Just Ask' hours which are office hours but in a more comfortable setting for you as a student.

Classes are co-taught and no professors have ten year so if they aren't good the university has the opportunity to let them go.

Plus if you live on campus you get apartments and your own room, no stuffy dorms!
