  • Degree: Mortuary Science
"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."

"Amazing! I loved it. The grounds were beautiful, the buildings just old enough and the professors almost always attentive and engaging. There were plenty of resources for new students and activities to do. Lots of study places."

  • Degree: Nutrition
"The degree I earned from the University of Minnesota has proved to be very flexible with my intended career path. I am currently enrolled at Marquette University working towards a Master's Degree in Nursing. The program was designed for those who intend to charge their careers, in my case from nutrition to nursing. I was given ample support from my academic advisors as well as support from my nutrition professors."

"The genetic counseling program at the University of Minnesota is outstanding. The didactic and clinical training prepared me well for my work as a genetic counselor. The instructors are all well qualified and the program is very helpful throughout the two years of the program."

"I feel that this graduate program is a great quality of education and is flexible for those with careers and jobs outside of the classroom. They understand that many have other things in their life besides school and uses that as positive experience that adds to the classroom. The workload is doable and could be completed in a year if you wanted to, but most do two years."

  • Degree: Biology
"I really enjoyed my undergraduate courses at the University of Minnesota. The program not only asks you to learn the material, but also apply it. This makes challenging, yet also rewarding. The program is very research/health careers focused, which can cause both positive and negative attitudes while in the program. The faculty and career advisers are incredibly helpful and friendly. They go above and beyond to meet with you and to provide you with help, assistance, or advice. Overall, I have only great things to say about the Biology program at the University of Minnesota."

  • Degree: Veterinary Science
"I love that there are only 100 students in each veterinary class. It makes the group very tight and we help each other out all the time. We share notes, give each other advice and prepare study cards as a whole class. The professors are also very accommodating and understanding. They all want us to do well and enjoy the work that we do. They provide us with online power points, notes and recorded lectures as study materials. The cons are that I do not feel the admitted student body is very diverse. I like that 50% are out of state, but there is very little cultural diversity within the class. The majority are white females. I also do not like that the veterinary college is separate from the rest of the college and we do not get to see anyone outside of our class. We are within the same classroom everyday fro 8-5pm and do not have time to walk campus or eat at the on campus food court."

"The University of Minnesota is an elite school that cares about it's students. The mathematics department specifically provides various opportunities for students to get engaged within the department as well as on campus. The rigorous courses help foster academic growth throughout all four years and the support given by department staff, professors, graduate students, and your peers will help make your time studying math enjoyable and worthwhile."

"Very knowledgeable staff and fun environment for independent learners. Since there is such a large student population, there are not many opportunities for small group interactions or interactions one on one with a professor ."

"Sport management was a smaller program and I really liked it. The teachers were very available but at the same time because it is such a large university I was able to do my own thing and not feel like I had to have a certain kind of college experience."

"In retrospect, I would have preferred attending a smaller campus that provided more career guidance. I hardly ever heard from my adviser and found myself in a bind more than once when trying to schedule all of the necessary courses."

"The graduate program in Studio Arts at the University of Minnesota has a lot of great opportunities for graduate students. Some of the best aspects is that there are fellowships and grants to cover the tuition, and there are multiple opportunities to travel for your research. The negative part would be that the department feels understaffed, and everyone is working really hard. So it can be difficult to find support at times when you need it. Mostly, it is a great place and I'm really glad I came here."
