University of Minnesota - Twin Cities Reviews
I loved attending University of Minnesota. It had everything that I wanted to study and that was a lot! During my time there, I studied American Indian studies as well as Ojibwe language, Spanish, and Portuguese. I also studied Psychology and receive my Masters degree in Social Work. Since University of Minnesota has one of the largest study aboard programs in the country, I was able to study abroad 3 times and really hone my Spanish and Portuguese speaking skills. I also loved living on campus. The Twin Cities have a lot to do and it is exciting to live in such progressive city!
Coming to this University was quite the culture change considering the fact that I transferred from a junior college in California. I came out here because I was given the opportunity to be a student athlete in the sport of wrestling and I regret NOTHING. Everybody in this city in terms of administration, and students are very nice and give off a vibe that would be hard to be uncomfortable around. The only thing that I would change about this university is the cost of tuition, but I’m sure I’m not the only one that thinks that and it could be way worse than what it is. This is a very fine institution and it’s my home away from home, and I love it! Being right outside of the downtown city gives you so many opportunities to do things such as food, bars, and hanging out with your people. The only disadvantage about being here is the winter, but after all that, the spring and summer is beautiful!
I absolutely love it here! There are so many ways to get involved, through countless school clubs and organizations, to conducting research with faculty, or even getting involved with campaigns. Through the University of Minnesota I am currently conducting research with a doctor downtown Minneapolis, because they have a partnership with the University of Minnesota! I'm also helping on a campaign for Minnesota House of Representatives. This school is a dream come true, filled with so many opportunities! I would have never thought that I'd be this happy attending school here!
