"The university campus is very overwhelming when you go on tours or go to orientation, but the campus "shrinks" within a couple of months. There are a lot of interesting, historical buildings mixed in with very new and modern which makes it interesting. The University of Minnesota puts a lot into its science and technology programs and, in my opinion, gives students a wide variety of classes. For example, you can choose to take a fast track for entry level biology and take biology 101 and 102 (normally two semesters) as one class, which is helpful for students with a strong background in the subject already or a student who takes a bit longer to choose a major and wants to hurry things along. Classes are very large in the first couple of years and it is very easy to get lost in the crowd so you need to be able to work very independently or seek out help during office hours. Once you have chosen a major and completed the initial required classes the university demonstrates why a bigger school can be very nice. Rather than being forced into a specific track there are many choices to fulfill different requirements so you can choose classes to fit your specific interests and many are much smaller. If you can handle the first couple of years of large classes where you may never speak a single word to any of your professors, there is a lot of great opportunity."

"I love the U of M! It has been a amazing experience. All the people are so nice and willing to help, we have so many resources to get you to where you want to go with your career. We also have student groups everyone can fit into, there are so many and the students are very accepting if others. Additionally, I love our sports teams and going to the games. The U has been a amazing experience overall!"
