College Student

Campus Food: I do not have a meal plan.

College Student

Campus Housing: I do not reside in campus housing; I rent an apartment off campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many restaurants on Washington and Dinkytown. I am disappointed that I have not gotten to try more of them, but I still have many more years. Do not be afraid to try new restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Im working on getting the aid I need

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off-campus choices but I hope there were more 9 month lease options with more reasonable prices.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Do not be worried about not being apart of greek life. There are many other house and apartment parties. The only way you won't find a party is if you do not socialize yourself you get the info or be on the list.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The only thing I don't like, is that even if you weren't drinking in the dorms and get caught, you're still written up.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I felt as if I did not receive enough financial aid and had to pay a few hundred dollars out of my own money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Everyone always complains about Centennial dining hall, but honestly, it's not that bad. I've never had a day where I didn't like anything. I have eaten in every dining hall except Middlebrook, and they are pretty much all the same. They are just presented differently, so people would think it's better. 17th isn't that great, they have good and bad days, just like every dining hall.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everyone has their own opinions about the dorms, but I honestly loved it. The social environment was great. Every night I was in someone's room or someone was in my room, but we still got our work done. Everyone says centennial shouldn't even be counted as "superblock" but I had just as much fun as anyone did in the others. The cost is high depending on the room type, but not too bad.

Health & Safety: There are a ton of resources provided to any student who needs help

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Golden Gophers have some of the best facilities and fans in the country. Nothing is better than Game Days!

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a great time and growing at the U. I would definitely recommend rushing, it has made my experience at Minnesota so much more enriching and fun.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments are all really new and spacious in Dinkytown. The demand for apartments is so high that they keep building new complexes each year. Off campus housing is the best I've seen at any college

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I've visited a ton of other colleges and the nightlife at Minnesota really seems to stand out. It is a great work-hard, play-hard atmosphere. You'll never have a bad time

Off-Campus Housing: Housing fills up very fast. The dorms are not preferred after the first year or two of college and so most all the undergrad and graduate population looks for off campus housing, which makes for high levels of competition. Pricing is unbeknownst to me. No matter where you live though, be wary. Robberies and burglaries are strangely increasing in frequency off campus as of Spring 2015, especially armed robberies. Not much of that happens on campus. So while people prefer living off campus, there is an increasing danger out there.

Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Why would you party while in college? What a waste of time and thus money. Go sit down and have a drink with your friends, or go play a game outside or inside. Party? If there are any, you're wasting your time and money.

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.
