Despite the large campus and atmosphere, with some work, personal connections can be made. I've had general classes with 550 students and 25 in discussion and a small seminar with 6 students. It's all about what works best for you. Furthermore, I don't think any other schools in the area rival the reputation and resources available at the University of Minnesota-TC. I find this to be particularly true in the business school. The university is constantly working on providing new resources and facilities for students. I can't wait for the renovated student union to reopen in fall 02.

Just so you know, it is a must to experience dorm life as a freshman, preferably in one of the all freshman halls because it gives you other people to easily relate with. While it might be a little difficult to study, who really wants to? There is always someone doing something.

I think the large range of diversity at the U makes it possible for any student to find a comfort zone here.

As for any negative features, I'm going to list all that I can possible think of. First, the walking… be prepared to walk/bike/rollerblade yourself into shape here. While the buses are very convenient, safe and useful, there is still plenty of walking to be done and parking spots are scarce. Thankfully, the U just opened a 1900-space ramp by the new dorms on campus, so a parking spot shouldn't be as much of a problem. Second, class registration, while there are ways to cheat the system, hope for an early registration time because good classes fill up. But don't worry, if there is a class you REALLY need, you can get it one way or another. Third, and last, the dorm food, some dorms have better food than others. From what I can tell, Pioneer and Middlebrook have the best food. But Territorial Hall (T-Hall) is by far the best experience. But has any dorm ever really had good food anyways?

Hope this helps someone out there,

Jay
