Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2011

College Life Rating

I have become very involved with campus. Between my sorority, the Honors Program, my volunteer job, my work study job and the multicultural groups i have gotten involved with, I am always meeting new people. The football team is not that great this year, but games are always fun to go to despite this. I have never sat home on a Friday or Saturday night because I had nothing to do- there is ALWAYS something to do on this campus.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2010

College Life Rating

The U is a very vibrant and high energy campus. As a grad student, I cannnot speak much to clubs and organizations, but the U hosts a Farmer's Market right in the middle of the East Bank campus every spring-fall, which is fantastic. The Student Union almost always had some type of organization hosting an event, and Gopher games (football, basketball, hockey) were always so much fun to attend, regardless of the outcome of the game.
