“A major University set aside in a Major city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

What's not to like about UW? Great sports facilitys. Ample parking. Interesting neighborhoods and although the campus is huge, it is very walkable. If you cannot walk, the Eastbank area has plenty of public transportation. The Natural History Museum and Art Museum (which looks like the Wicked Witch of the West's castle IMO) are must sees.

“Great Stadium!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The new stadium is amazing! It is state of the art, and has a great ballroom. It's very clean & the people that work there are really nice.

“Campus Visiting.”

Lots of construction around campus, so make sure you know where you're going. Enjoyed a great day on the West Bank.

“Amazing school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I attended the U of M in 70s. On a recent visit to the Carlson School I was impressed with the facilities and the school's vision.
If our future is a function of our educational opportunities, then MN is in great shape.

“Great Gameday Environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Checkout a Gopher football game at TCF Stadium and go to Sally's before and after. Its an easy cab ride from downtown but make sure you have the cab driver give you an estimate before departing. I've had it range from $10 to $20 one way... soon there will be light rail so cab drivers will be a non-issue.
