The University of Minnesota is a great place to live in part because of the surrounding communities. It is diverse so everyone can find their place. Public transportation is above average allowing some quick commutes. Breaking outside of the campus bubble can be difficult for students but is definitely worthwhile. Sometimes, in neighborhoods near the U of M campus you feel unsafe, but if walking with a group of people it is generally fine. There is nightlife either in the city (clubs and bars) or on campus (house parties and college bars). There are a couple groceries stores only a few lightrail stops away, otherwise you can usually find someone with a car who is willing to have company on their grocery store trip. I wouldn't call the immediate University of Minnesota area family friendly but many nearby suburbs are nice for families. The University of Minnesota and Minneapolis in general has a great job market. A lot of companies here are growing, and the university hires in droves.

Minneapolis has a wonderful and youthful atmosphere! There is a great emphasis on education and healthcare in this area! I have never seen this many billboards about physical and mental health in any other state.
Minneapolis is a metropolitan area so there are a lot of stores and restaurants. One of the most visited sites in Minneapolis is the Mall of America, which features many clothing stores and restaurants. Closer to the campus, where I live, there are lots of restaurants and bars geared towards college students. Drug stores are common so getting personal items is pretty easy.
