Most Helpful Review for University of Minnesota Twin Cities

If you are willing to spend the time, the professors are more than willing to help you out. Some of the classes are hard and require after class work, but in the end it's all worth it. They don't restrict you on what you can / can't take. It's up to you. They have great tools that allow you to plan out your entire four or five year schedule and it shows you just want you need to take to receive your degree.

    It's one of the most oxymoronic colleges I've ever been at, and in the best way. I am able to make it big or small, all depending on where I want to go on campus and who I want to see. And better yet, your professors are awesome, and even though you might not connect with them all the time, that's what the blessing of a TA is so that you always have someone that you can ask questions to!

    I think that this a wonderful, large campus with multitudinous opportunities. The only things I have frustration with is that housing and tuition is a hefty sum, and when you are accepted to the college, it doesn't mean you are accepted to your major. Other than that they try to do their best to make it safe and include all types of people.

    It's a great campus; right in the city so tons of things to do, plenty of ways to get around and so beautiful. The education is good as well and the reputation of the school is solid. But the main thing for me is that whatever you could want this school has--want a small, tightknit community? There are plenty of ways to find that here. Want the camaraderie spirit as you gather round for your sports team? Gophers have that too. Want quiet coffeehouses with great vibes for studying and cute insta pics or boppin' new places to go on a Friday night? You can have both here.

    The university has high-quality teachers and nice facilities. The campus is small enough to walk and looks very nice. It is also a very welcoming and inclusive school.

    I seen the school and live close by so it is a advantage. The school helps you get different range of classes that is about your major. The school also helps you meet new students. The campus can also help you get some excersize when going to your next class for the day.

    While the size of UMN might seem intimidating, the resources students gain from this are invaluable, especially once they get involved in research. I am an Earth Science student, which means I get a smaller department, close-knit experience on top of incredible access to cutting edge research. Minneapolis is also an incredible city, and living here has shaped my hobbies and interests.
