Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2012
"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."

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015
"Good place to work, live, and go to school. Plenty of resources to help you out throughout college, and plenty of activities to get involved in. Professors are decent, and get a lot better when you get into your degree program. The mechanical engineering program is a solid program, and myself and most of my peers landed jobs while still in school or directly afterwards."

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2009
"While at the Carlson School of Management, I was provided with many opportunities for growth. Not only was I able to take awe inspired classes from some of the best renowned faculty members throughout the world, At Carlson, I was able to work at a rewarding internship; fulfill my dream of becoming a teaching assistant; and able to get a first hand view of what it would be like to be a PhD candidate crunching numbers as a research assistant."

"I was basically on my own. On a campus of 50,000 students you don't get a lot of one-on-one attention from advisers or professors, which can make staying on track a challenge. In retrospect, I would have preferred to attend a smaller campus with a better sense of community."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2007
"The business school (Carlson School of Management) is well connected with Minnesota's big business, and the metropolitan area is a hug of coprporations in agriculture, manufacturing, and retail. The downside is the sheer size of the classes, so creating meaningful relations with faculty is a challenge for students."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2007
"It's a very large campus, but it doesn't feel big after a couple of months. Class sizes are big in the entry level classes so you need to be self motivated to succeed. As you move towards a major there are smaller classes and there are lots of options"

Victoire Armande - 8/4/2015
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2010
"This is a large institution, so you won't receive a lot of personal attention or guidance. The B.A. theatre program is uneven - more physical and experimental versus textual and classical. Physical and experimental training is essential, but textual and classical training rounds you out as a performer. Any of the design programs (sound, set, lighting) are the strong suit of the theatre department. If you prefer musical theatre, this is not the best place for you - not many musicals are produced and some of the instructors do not even consider it a true art form. Also, do not chose this university if you are more interested in film - there isn't a whole lot for you here in that regard. Finally, if you do choose this university to complete your B.A. in theatre, then use it as a networking experience. Almost all of the instructors in the department are highly involved in the local theatre community. Because the theatre community in the twin cities is so large and diverse, make sure to audition for productions outside of the university - you will have many more opportunities if you do."
