“Find the Shoe Tree!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

In exploring the campus (both sides of the river), we were delighted to find the Shoe Tree! Hint: it is easier to find on foot than in your car, which encourages you to walk around and get a feel for the campus.

“Hidden Tunnels”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Great place to have a conference if you like venue changes and alternatives. There are tunnals that allow you to escape the weather and get around. The elevators are slow and problematic, and the staff in the summer is helpful but hard to find. The food options before 2pm are excellent and the dorms have great food as well.

“Just campus”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

This was a beautiful traditional campus. It reminded us of Michigan State University. It had beautiful trees and a gracious feeling.

“Beautiful campus!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Both the Minneapolis and St. Paul campus have their own personality - St. Paul has wonderful grounds and feels laid back - a small town college feel. Minneapolis is spread out and very cosmopolitan. Both have lots to offer.
