Why they chose the University of Minnesota Twin Cities
It was important to me to be in a large university that was integrated within an urban area, with great educational and career opportunities. Here at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, there is a vast amount of classes to explore, resources to utilize, places to go, and people to meet!
My favorite class was an interdisciplinary study that explored the Renaissance as taught by a team of history, art history, and literature professors, with the option to have the small-group discussion in English, Italian, or French. This class was a highlight in my French studies!
Favorite U of M Memory
One of the most exhilarating experiences was to march on the field at Huntington Bank Stadium with the Pride of Minnesota Marching Band!
Favorite Random fact about the University
The scoreboard at Huntington Bank Stadium is larger than a basketball court.
Best Place to Study on Campus
In the spring and fall, the best place to study is on the grass at the mall. In the winter, get comfortable at Coffman Memorial Union--cozy chairs, big sunny windows, and food if you get hungry!
