  • I love this school, the campus is great, the transportation system is stellar, but it is missing one thing. For some reason, the University shuts down the air conditioning in the residence halls. My room is currently hotter than Satan's living room. My window is open, my fan is on, the door is open, and yet I still can't keep my chocolate from melting. Sure it tastes better melted, but it is a heck of a lot messier that way. Just once do I want to rest my head on my pillow after a long day of classes and other joyous activities without sweating. It is gross. I just want my chocolate to not melt.. I like chocolate... a lot.
  • If you don't get weeded out in your first two years, you will enjoy the upper level courses. The best years were in junior and senior years where I interacted closely with accomplished faculty and their research. They don't give away degrees at this school. The University demands that you be resourceful and if you are used to being babied you will not survive this school or life, for that matter. I have the U of MN to thank for giving me the career I have.
  • UMN is a good place for PHD students. However, many of the undergraduate programs here suck. Chemistry and programs in Carlson are good though. If you wanna go to programs not mentioned above, AVOID UMN. The school now is trying to enroll much more undergrad students than its resource can bear so that they can get more money. I got many friends in Statistics and they told me they need to get permission numbers for getting into a stat course even the course has no students registered. Usually, above one hundred of students try to get in one stat course that only allows for 30 students to register. The faculties for undergraduate office are also trying to keep students in the U by giving more harsh requirements on Liberal education. Remember that more time you spends here, more they can get from your tuition. Although some of the professors care about undergrads, most of them do not, and some of the math and statistics courses are in very bad qualities. When I first started my studies here, I was excited about UMN. After 3 years, even I got offers from good graduate schools, I felt very disappointed about the undergrad education here. Don't be fooled by their academic rankings as that are only for PHD. Overall, the resource for undergraduate math, statistics and economy students is very pathetic.
  • I love the U of M because, in the fall of 1970, I fell in love all over again with Annie K who undertook graduate studies there. Now, I love it for all I learn there myself.🌈😎
  • A powerful and inspiring learning environment. Great resources for virtually everything.
