57% of students gave University of Minnesota, Twin Cities 4 stars overall.
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.
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.
