University of Minnesota-Duluth Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
UMD offered experience opportunities to it's Graphic Design students through on-campus positions and clubs. The courses could have been more career-driven and technical. The professors were great and offered a vast range of experience from working at 3M to Chicago based agencies. I would recommend the program to anyone looking into Graphic Design.
The school is large, so there is a lot to experience. It's nice having those opportunities. However, my personal experience was difficult as I had to change my major because they kept switching when classes were offered
UMD had many great professors in the psych and outdoor ed department. There was not one teacher I did not like, or learned something from. However, some required classes were worse or more pointless than others (i.e. history and systems). I made some great connections and thoroughly enjoyed my education. The campus offered some neat stuff too, like never having to walk outside.
I enjoyed my time at UMD it's a beautiful campus with a lot to offer. However I was slightly disappointed in the psychology program and their focus on the research of psychology. I wish we had options on what areas we want to focus on, research vs clinical
UMD us a great small University in an amazing city. There are many opportunities for undergraduate research and the faculty is wonderful with helping prepare you for your future career.
Great experience but I did not have enough financial preparation. I would have waited until I was sure what career I wanted to go into before entering college and I should have applied for more scholarships, grants and other ways to avoid taking on private loans. Know why you are going to college, not just where.
Enjoyed my time at UMD. It's truly a great school in an amazing city on an amazing Lake. Wonderful professors and facilities and opportunities.
The University of Minnesota - Duluth is a fantastic place to get a well rounded lib ed degree, while in a smaller environment, close to some spectacular nature. The faculty, especially in the communications department, are very engaged in their subjects, and encourage students to really dig in to the material. It was also fairly easy to double major in 4 years without taking an overwhelming amount of classes a semester, or attending summer classes. It is small, so if you're looking for a large school with active greek life, this is not the school for you.
