UMN is a very large campus, which can be intimidating. Despite the intimidation, however, this large campus is a good thing. With a diverse student body, helpful professors, good dorms, and great libraries, this campus can soon feel like home. Plus, it is in the middle of a culturally rich city- Minneapolis. There are many opportunities for internships and exploration here in the cities- from old-fashioned speakeasies to the famous sculpture garden. The University of Minnesota Twin Cities has a supportive community both within and outside of the school, and it clearly shows.

Overall my experience as an undergraduate student and now as graduate student (in the Master of Nursing program) at the University of Minnesota has been great. The academic facilities on campus are truly innovative and technologically advanced. I feel this aspect helps prepare students for the technologically advanced society that we all live in. The diversity of among students is wonderful too as you get the chance to meet and connect with people from a wide range of ethnic & racial backgrounds. The downside is the costs but hopefully the institution's creditability outweighs the costs. Parking can be expensive so I encourage using the light rail or other public transportation. The size of the classes can be large at times so you need to be proactive with connecting with professors but this is good skill to learn anyways.

As big as the Big 10 school is, it's great to feel a part of something so amazing! It can be intimidating at first but it really doesn't take long to get acclimated with the area and your surroundings. A Big10 school in a bustling metropolis has so much to offer; there truly is something for everyone.
