I was able to while away an afternoon on campus with a good friend from the Twin Cities metro.

The University always has free lectures ranging from physics to politics to fine art. The campus is beautiful and easy to get around in. Many fine museums on campus too, the Bell Museum is an ever changing fascinating place sure to please small children to seniors.

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.
