University of Minnesota - Duluth Reviews
At the University of Minnesota - Duluth, everyone is very welcoming! Overall, I was very nervous to move from my small town, but once I got settled in, I was very happy with the decision I made. I have grown so much as a person being independent. The thing that I have found frustrating is that some student advisors are not helpful at all and haven't necessarily steered me in the right direction. I have often found myself having to stress over registering for class, having transfer credits be put into the schools system. Other than that, I have really enjoyed my time in Duluth and have no intentions of transferring.
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!
Overall, this is a good school to attend. It's right in the middle of everything, so it doesn't take long to get anywhere if you live close by. The professors are engaging, and there's specific staff to make sure you're on course to graduation. The major thing that's annoying about this school is the parking - there are lots of students so spots fill up fast!
