4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love my dorm and my floor mates

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the University of Minnesota. It's been the best year of my life! The music school is world class and there are so many classes to take. I considered going to an conservatory, but, I wanted to stuty things other than music. The U is perfect for that since I get world class faculty through out every department.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are a big part of campus

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I know that I have options to rely on if I am sexually assaulted, but I am concerned the perpetrator will not be convicted, as that seems to be a trend on this campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've only had particular problems with two classes, and for the most part teachers are understanding and like to see you succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many job, internship, and research possibilities, and I feel that the university allows me to be involved with many things that will distinguish me from others during grad school application time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Food options are limited for those with diet restrictions, and a meal plan is mandatory if you live in the dorms. Also, the bathrooms are disgusting. I hated them.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a very large supporter of Greek life and am not in a sorority/fraternity. I don't have much of an opinion.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have heard that the athletics are great. It is a division 1 school. I do not attend very many events at all.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a variety of choices for classes and extracurriculars and the school is bomb diggity.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They do everything in there power to try to make the campus as safe as possible. But dinky town is still sometimes unsafe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Really research about what classes you are taking and who you are taking them with it really helps.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school really helps show you your potential career path in whatever major you decided.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm community is great the cleanliness not so much.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life very huge and a lot of people are involved.

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school really help you feel important.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Dinky town and the surrounding neighborhoods can be a bit rough. The U does a good job by implementing programs such as a security escort and the gopher chauffeur, but there is still to many occurrences of robbery.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far nothing but positive things to say. The lectures can be big, but I'm usually engaged to the material being presented and so I don't notice the amount of others surrounding. That being said, a lot of class time is spent with TA's and those smaller settings are usually productive and informative.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Lots of opportunity if you search for it, however the second part is essential. All of these things must be self driven, rarely something comes to you.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: First semester I was in a lounge with 3 other guys cause the U frequently runs out of housing space for freshmen. However now that I am in a single room, I have no complaints. Good amenities and nice people.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not too familiar with the program. They throw a lot of parties but don't seem to have a major impact on campus aside from that.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Very influential group around campus, especially around football season, however there is no pressure to join the popularity if you're not into that sort of thing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Robert Frost articulated it perfectly when he said, “College is a refuge from hasty judgment.” The University of Minnesota is the epitome of an institution that stands to support the students make their own dreams come true and provide them with structural skills to enter the real world. The students love being a Gopher and show off their spirit because U of M is truly a community of its own. Sometimes, it can be difficult to find one's niche, but there are many opportunities and experiences to be had that will help students find their strengths and weaknesses. The academic opportunities at U of M are limitless. They will fit one's interest and pace. The resources offered at the U of M are phenomenal, but a student must reach out to them. It is the perfect blend of city and suburbs, with a touch of old country in some parts. Even though it is one of the largest universities, students always feel welcomed as if it's home. 

Students know whether U of M is a good fit for them within their first semester. But most students love being here and take advantage of the diverse variety of people, culture, and the environment of the University. Being in a big city, it is relatively easier for students to come out of college with a good structural foundation in their fields and be able to find a job to apply their newfound knowledge. The U truly appreciates the uniqueness of its students and provides them with tools to enrich their knowledge and get an edge in the competitive market. The students are equipped with great educational opportunities, learn new ways to socialize and build connections, and along the way make good memories with lifelong friends. U of M offers anything and everything a student expects from his or her college life and much more.
