The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities has greatly expanded the opportunities I have at my hands. Specifically for pre-health majors, I believe the U of M does a good job at providing numerous resources for students to gain hands on experience and increase their networking. I enjoy the opportunities for fun as well, from numerous restaurants and shops all around, as well as fun outdoor events. Overall, I was worried about attending a big school, but I believe I have found the U of M to be a great choice.
One thing I would possibly change would be the lack of personal connection you can sometimes experience with professors and advisors. This is very dependent on who you professor or advisor is, as I have had both good and bad. I believe choosing to go to a big school, you have to expect this as a possible consequence. When I have had poor professors, I usually find that others feel the same way and have contacted administration about this, but nothing is done. I believe one thing the U of M could do is address the professors with bad reputations with students.
Professors are super supportive, friendly, and eager to help. Students are friendly. Campus life is fun and welcoming.
The great campus, a mix of events, and amazing professors!
The food in the dining hall is the same almost every day.
Lots of diversity and a great place to meet new people in a safe city.
I did not live on campus, so it could be difficult to meet people.
Overall, I had a challenging time at the UMN. Oftentimes, I felt unsafe on campus due to both the size of the campus and its location. Random individuals would sneak into my dorm and no safety procedures were taken. Due to the sheer size of the campus, it was difficult to feel more than just a number.
I didn't like how unsafe it felt on campus.
There is a community for everyone.
It's easy to get lost in the options of events and organizations to get involved in.
