Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2011

Overall Rating

I absolutely love the Twin Cities campus. At first, I was worried because of how huge it is because I am from a smaller city. But it worked out great. Once classes start it is so easy to navigate my way around; the transportation is good and people are always willing to help me out. The dining halls are good and the food where I live is not bad at all. I joined a sorority and have fallen in love with Greek life here. There is a club, organization or student group for everyone here.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2010

Overall Rating

I had the best experience while attending the U for graduate school. The campus was beautiful and very easy to get around, thanks to the campus shuttles that were available. Perhaps one of the greatest advantages to attending a University like U of MN is that it has a medical and a dental school, and thus students are truely able to access affordable and quality health care.
