One of the things I love about going to the University of Minnesota is its diverse student body. Our campus is home to students, faculty, and staff from many different countries, backgrounds, and cultures.
We come to college to learn from professors and experts, but we also have much to learn from each other. The U of M is a place where you can explore other cultures and celebrate your own. Of our 600+ student organizations, over 100 have a multicultural focus! We also offer academic studies in African and African American Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicano/Latino Studies, and American Indian Studies.
Come experience our diverse and vibrant campus community for yourself! You and your family are invited to the fourth-annual Experience Minnesota: An Open House for Multicultural Students on Saturday, October 9, 2010 on the U of M campus. You can register online or call us at 612-625-0000 to sign up.
Here are some more details about what you will do at the event:
- Learn about majors, student life, and financial aid and scholarships.
- Tour our historic campus in the heart of the Twin Cities.
- Submit your application for admission at an optional Application Workshop (high school seniors only).
- Meet current U of M students and hear about their performances.
- Tour our student cultural centers, see a step performance by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., and hear spoken-word group Voices Merging.
I have worked at Experience Minnesota the past two years and will be there again this year. It's a ton of fun, and I hope to see you there!
