The University of Minnesota is a welcoming, lively, and beautiful university. They have amazing communication with the families of students and the students themselves. The campus looks like a campus that would be in a movie- absolutely stunning! The mixture of metropolitan landscape and wildlife and nature is perfect. You will never be bored at the University of Minnesota as there is always something to do, whether that be exploring downtown, going to a concert, or kayaking on one of Minnesota's thousands of lakes.

I never got the opportunity to live on campus dorms, admitted to many kids not enough rooms, I was offered a hallway space with three other people, which I declined! I was not made aware of living situation till last minute and I had declined all other offers and scholarships/full rides to other schools! I rented apartment instead which was not a great experience because other people renting were not all students which made it hard to be student. I luv the u, the classes, professors, campus life. Could have better security and treat all students equal, athletes are treated way better than everyone, own tutors, where they live eat etc....
The U is the best school in the upper Midwest because it has it all! It has everything on campus, great people, awesome Greek life, and as many opportunities you could possibly think of. I chose here because the U is respected in every category of academics, and is highly reputable in all of us research. The student organizations are phenomenal, and the 3 different campuses that all come together make it the scene for everyone!
