The University of Minnesota Twin Cities has everything to offer to a wide range of students. I am in the retail program which is a part of the School of Design, but half of our classes are in the Carlson School of Management. This is great exposure! I have found numerous leadership positions, clubs, and am working with the retail advisory board to create a National Retail Federation student organization. From different food establishments, on campus events, the weekend scene, The U never disappoints! One can never go wrong with Big 10 sports, and the on-campus recruiting is pretty prestigious, but I love the sense of competition.

It's sort of implied that you don't live in a dorm after your freshman year. There are many different apartments and houses in Dinkytown, Como, Marcy Holmes, and Stadium Village. There are a variety of layouts, the problem is the pricing. Because housing is essentially in down town Minneapolis, it is very expensive. To make things worse, new "luxury" apartments have popped up. These buildings provide granite countertops, free tanning beds, and many other things students do not need. Because most buildings are like this now, you have little choice but to pay upwards of $500/month for a shared room. But it's still cheaper than living in the dorms!

The University of Minnesota is beautiful. I love that it is next to a metropolitan area and there is always something to do! There is something to do for whatever mood you are in. When visiting, it is important to try an insomnia cookie! They deliver late in the night and come out warm to help you fall asleep. With something different to do on every corner of the campus, it is impossible to get bored. The professors are also very knowledgeable about their information. The professors are hired based on what they are passionate about and if they have a good background about it. This school mainly stood out to me because of the many different programs and how much they have to offer in each separate one. The programs can be personalized to distinctly fit you and help turn you into the best of what you are striving to become.
