    Students pay less due to it being a public university, but UMN's academic rigor and reputation insures students' education is among the best in the nation. I am applying for graduate schools now, and I feel confident that with a UMN on my transcript, prospective advisers know I am well-trained and educated.

    whenever you're tired of the dorm food, go ahead and hit up the restaurants around the campus. you legit have so many options to choose from (mexican, chinese, italian, burgers, etc..) and if you're bored and got nothing to do, try hitting the rec center up.

    For the price you pay to go to a public school, it's a pretty good bang for the buck. Only if you use everything wisely and to your advantage.
