Nice campus to walk around on; especially in fall. Not a great location in terms of the traffic and how many people speed on the streets surrounding it.

While the University of Minnesota is huge, everything is so well kept and the buildings are interesting with groomed gardens and lawns everywhere. I attended a conference and all of the classrooms and other facilities we used were bright and clean. Catering service was only ok. Typical stuff, and they ran out.

Loved walking the campus, seeing the artwork, peeking into the history buildings and enjoying their decor as well. What a wonderful surprise!

We visited the museum on campus with free admission. We went to see the building because my husband loves to visiting buildings.

I took my 14 year old daughter to the One Direction concert. We had a great time!! The stadium was easy to get to on the metro light rail---plenty of food, drink, and restrooms available at the venue. Lots of helpful staff.

2nd campus tour for our rising senior. After many attending campus tours, I must say that UM Twin Cities seems to have this down pat. Obviously the admissions staff is in this business for a reason, but we were warmly welcomed in the overview, group tour and were able to meet individually with a senior admissions counselor who was able...

We were on a college tour trip but did not sign up for a tour of this college. We visited the admissions office and were surprised that they were able to give us a personal tour of the campus. The tour guide was very helpful and friendly. The personal touch at such a large institution was refreshing!!!
