TCF is great outdoor football! Close to downtown and excellent stadium! Easy to access by lightrail from downtown and is probably the best way to get there!

What a treat to sit outside and watch the Vikings. Great intimate stadium. Can't imagine there is a bad seat in the house!

Toured the campus recently. Beautifully laid out. Much better than I was expecting. Interesting idea to have a "Scholars Walk".

The UMN is expansive (West Bank, East Bank and St. Paul campuses just on the Twin Cities location alone) but an exciting place to visit and attend school. Lots of great restaurants and a mix of contemporary and traditional buildings.

UMN's campus is very well put together and efficient, as is their programming for events, i.e. move-in and welcome week for new students.

The University of Minnesota campus is a very nice one. There are many great places to walk, several impressive museums and, of course, the Mississippi River. At the edge of the campus there are a number of good bars and restaurants too.

Being in the hotel directly located there, the U. of Minn. was a great place to walk around and grab a bike (free for first 30 mins) ! They have the most unique Alumni building, amazing gym, unique sculptures that "disappear" that a quantum-physicist-turned-sculptor created for the physics & nanotech building (called “SPANNUNGSFELD”) ... very enjoyable in August!

I loved the weather. We are from east Texas where it is so hot usually with high humidity. Here there was no humidity. Everyone was out riding their bikes or were on their skateboards all day. I just wished that there were more places to eat around the college.
