I initially had my heart set on this school, it was my dream university. But that was when I was in a different major plan track. I decided to change my major from biology to psychology my freshmen spring semester and once I did that, my research opportunities went to practically zero. Ultimately I decided to transfer to the main Twin Cities campus after my sophomore year. The thing I enjoyed most about UMD was the school spirit, and there are many professors who are dedicated to their students and really want to see them learn!
Review University of Minnesota - Duluth
I will be going into my second year of school here and I am still here for a reason! The University of Minnesota Duluth campus is amazing! Its just a few minutes form downtown, has state parks fairly close and a lot of good food restaurants just waking distance. One thing that makes my school unique is that since we have one of the harshest winters in the state of Minnesota, we have underground tunnels that connect to every single building. This makes it easier and so much more comfortable from waking class to class even if its a snowstorm outside. My favorite thing to do after class is go to canal park. That is in downtown Duluth and it has shops, restaurant, museums and everything else. There is always something to do and a different thing for each season. Such as in fall, there is a ship that creates itself as a haunted house that tourists and locals can walk through.
University of Minnesota Duluth is a good fit for me in most ways- the atmosphere of Duluth is great, good food, plenty of outdoor activities. And you never have to go outside if you don't want to! The buildings are all connected- which is good, because the winter in Duluth is freaking cold.
