University of Minnesota - Rochester Reviews

I love the classroom style! The focus is on group work where you learn together and try to solve problems rather than attending a lecture and taking notes. Classrooms always have more than one teacher in them so students can get more individualized help and different view points from different teachers. Sometimes, classrooms will have teachers from different departments all teaching one topic (for example, a math teacher, a psych teacher, and a chemistry teacher all talking about the distributions of Skittles flavors, the recognition of Skittles and their flavors, and the sour acids in the Skittles respectively).

I think that it is wonderful to have a 4-year college in Rochester. It opens more doors for college students that wish to stay in Rochester. It is small, which I do not mind, I really enjoy having a great personal relationship with my colleagues and professors. Thanks to Mayo Clinic, we are able to stay in Rochester for clinical and use their facilities for simulations. Most of my professors have shown a real genuine interest in seeing me succeed in my BSN program.
