The professors at UMR are very helpful and extremely accessible. At least one professor per department has office and/or Just Ask hours weekly. The courses are rigorous, but the professors genuinely want to help the students learn. They challenge us, but give us the support we need as well.

    The University of Minnesota-Rochester (UMR) is the perfect campus for a student that is positive that he/she wants to pursue a degree in health sciences, at a small campus. I believe that UMR is better than a typical college campus, because the students can go directly to their professors and ask questions at a few different locations on the small campus, the kind of interaction we have with the professors at UMR isn't like most colleges in the United States. Also, there's a sky-way that connects the school apartment to the rest of the campus, so if you live at 318 Commons, you don't have to walk in various, unsuitable weather conditions.

    The opportunities given to students who have an interest in the health field are amazing! The class size is small which will lead to smaller classroom sizes. Overall, the university is amazing!
