    The campus is great. There is a sense of tradition here not present at many other colleges. Additionally, the University is located at the heart of Minneapolis, so there is plenty to experience outside the college. There is much diversity, so anyone with a mind to do so can find their niche here.

    The University of Minnesota has a beautiful campus on St. Paul, which is where I end up spending the majority of my time. It's never overly crowded, though the Minneapolis campus tends to have a large quantity of people during the school days. The campus connectors are a very convenient service that the school offers to transport students from campus to campus, and having many of the city buses running through the Minneapolis campus is quite convenient when you want to head somewhere to have fun, such as the Mall of America. Overall, the people are very friendly as well.

    Before attending the U, I was truthfully pretty against it. I thought it would be way too big, and too close to home. Wrong! I have kids I know in just about every single class, and know all of my professors (and more importantly, they know ME!) on a first name basis. The U offers so many resources and opportunities, the city of Minneapolis is amazing, and the education is top notch. The one downside: MN is COLD in the wintertime. Dress appropriately and it's not so bad.

    I cannot state this enough: There are tons of things to do here. You will end up a homebody, shutting up in your dorm on the weekends only if you do not want to get outside and do things. There are TONS of student organizations (Kntting club, Zombie awareness group, greek life, cultural clubs, etc.). There are tons of different people from different backgrounds you can meet, different cultures you can learn about, and I love this weather (well, we'll see because I've never seen snow before).
