I was out walking on a warm day and happened upon the Memorial Union and bookstore. Good place to fill your water bottle and and relax for awhile. This is a gorgeous campus. Lots of student tours going on.

Was in town for business, and the hotel was on campus- and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like it! Gorgeous, clean campus with lots to do. I hate to say it, but it's nicer than the Big 10 campus in my town!

Really nice campus smack in the middle of a city. Must tough walking around there in the winter. Frat row residences are pretty impressive. Worth checking out.

I visited with my son who is graduating high school this spring. The campus is beautiful. Spread out but everything within walking distance. Location to downtown Minneapolis is about 20 minutes. Students were very friendly as was the admissions staff. Our visit sealed the deal....More
