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....
Review University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
The Twin Cities campus is very convenient as a student who doestrogen not use a car for transportation, the circulators and connectors have saved me a lot of time. I live in University Village, an on-campus apartment, just a block away from the Greenline station, 3 blocks from a target, and is affordable! I've had great experiences with faculty and staff as well, my instructors respond efficiently to inquiries about the class and coursework. Not to mention the various opportunities to participate in various clubs and activities. I love ASL Club and have enjoyed the Ke $have concert that was on campus this past fall. Attending the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities has allowed me to explore more in my major (Child Psychology, BA) because there are a larger quantity of courses than the community college I transferred from. The diversity on campus has made me more culturally curious about different demographics in our country.
I was a freshman at the U and I have to say, I LOVE it! This year has probably been full of some of the most rewarding, exciting experiences, and both the academics and social life have been fabulous. It is a big university, meaning what you put into it is what you will get out, but if you go out and let yourself try some of the many opportunities available, something will catch your interest. Besides the stellar academics and classes (so many choices!), one of my favorite parts of the university is the fact that the downtown is only a bus ride away! Seriously, between the Mall of America and downtown Minneapolis, my friends and I probably go on an adventure at least once a week. There are so many other great things I could go on about, but basically I wouldn't trade this school for any other.
