The campus is very large and has many different components. I mostly visited the Carlson school of management. The facilities are nice and there are walkways between the facilities so you don't have to be outside. It is incredibly windy and cold during this time of the year.

You can get almost anywhere by walking here. And every building has unique architecture, whether it be modern or historic. I absolutely recommend going to see this campus in the fall as all the trees have rainbows of color on their leaves.

And if you want to see... More

Great Clinic and staff. I saw a world-renowned specialist. He spent two hours talking to me and answering questions. He is also doing research.

When visiting the MSP region you should take a walk or drive through the campus. The school is huge and has a great mixture of architecture among the buildings. We were specifically happy to walk inside the Williams Center- home of UofM basketball. It is one of America's greatest collegiate field houses and if you are a NCAA fan, get... More

I attended the U. It didn't feel as "big" as everyone said it was. I was able to get around just fine. Has everything you need. Great school!
