As a former U of M student and as a working professional, one of my favorite qualities of the University of Minnesota was its location. The Twin Cities campus is located in a large metropolitan area with great opportunities to get involved in the campus community and the Twin Cities community through jobs, internships, volunteer opportunities and student groups. The Twin Cities not only offers great opportunities for you to gain valuable experiences, but also tons of opportuntities to enjoy your four years as an undergraduate student.
Located in Minneapolis and St. Paul, our campus draws in performers, entertainers, and lecturers such as President Barack Obama, Bob Dylan and fomer Vice President Al Gore. Even the Dalai Lama is set to come this May. And if you are a Sarah Silverman fan, next Wednesday would be a great time to come to campus. She will be performing in Ted Mann Hall on Wednesday, March 23. Tickets are still available, so if you are interested check out more information about her show.
With so many events on campus you might think its hard to keep up-to-date on campus happenings, but the University's Events Calendar is a great resource to learn what's happening on campus today and each month.
With so many opportunities to get involved in activities and enjoy world-class entertainment, the Twin Cities campus is a great place for a college education!
