“Beautiful Campus!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is a beautiful campus that appears to have plenty of history and beautiful areas of campus, and also seems very progressive. Terrific athletic facilities, really nice student union and bookstore. Definitely worth checking out if you're in Minneapolis!

“Home of Scholars”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

If you ask me to tell the queen of the land of 11000+ lakes, I would name the great 'University of Minnesota'. No else description is required. Proud to be a golden gopher.

“Freshman Orientation”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

A lot of information in a little time, but very well presented. Food was excellent. Information was valuable. Appreciated the chance to ask individual questions of the various departments represented. Tours offered for parents were interesting. Would have liked more specific directions in the afternoon sessions such as where to go next, where to meet up with your student, how to get to the evening dinner & trolley tour,

“Nice campus”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Nice campus, close to many restaurants. Felt safe, didn't seem like it was in the middle of town. 17th Hall was very nice and clean!

“Feel like going back to school!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

A new light rail (tram) line is connecting the Campus with Minneapolis and Saint Paul. It is really easy to get there. I walked over Washington Bridge so I got a great view of campus and Weisman Art Museum from there. The Minneapolis Campus is really cool.
