4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I had an amazing experience regarding academics, professors, advisers, and study abroad.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I am very prepared to go out into the work world and to apply to graduate school.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It is a city, so it isn't always the safest. However, there are always options provided like the gopher chauffeur and other options that can help an individual stay safe.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I had an okay experience. I lived in Pioneer and that was the worst of the dorms, but I still managed to make it through the year, loving my single room.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I was in greek life for 2 years of my college experience, and I made a lot of friends. I retained one of those friends and the rest are just passerbys in my life. I really think that the community lacks diversity and the parties are filled with the same slutty humans waiting to interact with each other again and again. The non-greeks have more fun.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: This is definitely not a school for athletes. Athletics are great, but the focus of this campus is on the liberal and the artsy.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The academics are incredible and the opportunity to do research is awesome. I struggled to find a close group of friends and didn't enjoy the Minnesota "Passive Aggressiveness" AKA Minnesota "Nice".

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As long as I know, students are strongly involved in athletics. Since Minnesota is a place where winter is almost the half of year, people appreciate the weather in the summer, so much. Gym is always full and people usually go outside to workout whenever tiny bit of sun is out. People support school athletic teams and enjoy the national sports games as well.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All individuals seem to have strong ideas toward their goals. From what I know, people in this college are incredibly creative that I am always inspired. Instead of being competitive, students are supportive to each other. Professors are always there for students and invariably helpful.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I can't describe my experience at the University of Minnesota as great but being in my intended major program, my professors are awesome, they are always glad to help, responds quickly to their emails and really pursues success for their students. I have been able to talk to my professors one on one and because the class sizes are so small, it is easier to make friends. In this program, it gets you out of your comfort zone, takes you on a wild ride, but in the end, its the place that you want to be at best. Everyone is like a second family to me in this program just because we all feel so connected going through different and same experiences together.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Peer pressure basically doesn't exist

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great university in a great city

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's unbelievable as we have connections across the U.S.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have specific people that walk you home safely

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is what you expect for a dorm room

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Most students do not view Greeks any differently

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are experts and their fields.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: 17th dorm food is amazing

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Im non-greek but I love Greek events

5 College Junior

Athletics: Sporting events are my favorite thing to attend

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes are a wonderful experience

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything has been good so far

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far they have done all that I could have asked for

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police officers do a good job

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some houses are good, some are okay but old

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.
