My name is Ed Bump and I'm from Rochester, MN. I decided to come to the University of Minnesota for a couple of reasons. The primary reason being The Carlson School of Management and the reputation it has earned. Being close to home was another incentive. I find the campus to be a diverse place filled with interesting people. I've always wanted to pursue a business degree and Carlson seems to be a great place to do so. In my free time I like to hang out with friends, to listen to a wide variety of music, to play frisbee, and to read. I'm looking forward to a good experience here at the U.
