3.51 Average Rating

The University of Minnesota Duluth is a research institution located in Minnesota’s fourth largest city. Founded in 1895 as the Duluth Normal School, this medium-sized campus for a large university has grown since its humble beginnings as a teacher’s school to offer over 150 majors and minors featuring a liberal education foundation. UMN Duluth is home to 16 athletic teams overseen by Champ the Bulldog, who took over for the original school mascot, the “Fighting Pedagogues,” or “Fighting Teachers.” Outside of academia, students can take advantage of the 244 student organizations and 50+ intramural teams and recreational activities. The western shore of Lake Superior also provides a number of off-campus opportunities, including hiking, skiing, and kayaking, while the city of Duluth itself offers shopping, dining, and entertainment.

What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
umd is a fantastic but underrated school. not many people know about it outside of minnesota and wisconsin, and even fewer consider it during their college search, but it is a wonderful school nonetheless. it has miles of trails, a great city down the hill, awesome sports, good people, and best of all it is cheap.
