Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities is a fantastic research-oriented school with essentially unlimited resources to assist in career building, networking, and getting real-world experience outside of the classroom. The campus is conveniently situated right next to downtown Minneapolis, however it still maintains a college campus feel. Speaking as a Kinesiology (science) major, I can say that the science classes were on the more difficult side when compared to other public universities. You will experience big lectures in your general education requirements and early science classes but as you grow into your major the classes have more of a high-school fell, as there are much less students per class. The biggest downside to the academics would be how research-based many of the professors were, as this could negatively affect their teaching style by making them less classroom/discussion based and more textbook based. However,the majority of the professors were very approachable, passionate, and genuinely wanted students to succeed, so that made the more difficult classes more manageable. Choose the University of Minnesota for a great academic experience in a very cool up and coming city, with plenty of high-quality Big Ten sporting events and plenty of advisors and resources to help you figure out your path.

Degree: Social Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Minnesota - Twin Cities most unique quality, to me, was its urban setting. The University of Minnesota - Twin Cities is one of few Big10 schools nested in an urban setting. Its setting allows its students with a plethora of opportunities to get connected with all types of businesses, non-profits, volunteer opportunities, extra curricular activities or hobbies, professionals, mentors, and role models.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The teachers are willing to help students achieve success in their academic careers. Most TAs I had were graduate students and knowledgeable in there fields of study. Therefore, both the instructors and TAs are very useful if you have questions about your coursework. The school environment is friendly and welcoming.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2002

The University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, was a great school to attend with knowledgeable instructors. Most of the classes were highly engaging and very rigorous. There was only one class that I was not impressed with; although that particular class had a visiting Professor from St. Catherine's.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

UMN definitely educated me well as an undergraduate student. UMN also has tremendous amounts of resources available to help me pursue my career goal (dentistry). I have never encountered one professor who is not willing to spend time with me or write me a reference letter. The entire school, faculties and staffs, definitely put students' interests before other things.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

I studied to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies at the University of Minnesota with a focus on transcontinental and intersectional women's movements. I had very thorough and thoughtful professors guiding me through a rigorous degree program. I could not have asked for a better education.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The U of M offers many opportunities small schools can't. I lived in St. Paul to make my experience smaller and I also had more friends in the CFANS college. Th education program is wonderful and allowed me to get hired right out of college.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2006

I attended the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus. My major was English and my minor was French. I went from a small community college and transferred to the U of M to complete my degree. I was a non-traditional student as I worked full-time and took night courses. The campus is large and well known for many programs. The population is diverse from traditional to non-traditional students as well as a very global student population. There are many courses offered that allow for attending in the evening which was essential for me.

Degree: Mortuary Science
Graduation Year: 2002

I attended the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree in Mortuary Science. As the only program of its kind available in Minnesota, it was a natural choice; but is also a nationally recognized program in the field. I was fortunate to receive multiple offers for employment immediately following graduation. I would highly recommend the program to others.
