Hello my name is Dennis Burris, and my nickname is DJ. I came to The University of Minnesota in 2006 to play football. I am originally from Ohio. This has been a really big change for me moving up here to Minnesota. Back in Ohio I lived in a small town, around 10,000 people. When i came to the Twin Cities i thought that I would hate it because i have never lived in the city before, I have always lived in the country. At first it was really hard to get used to because there was soo much traffic and so many people, it seemed as if there was no privacy in the city. Before long i adapted to living in the cities and love it now! I feel that its going to be really hard to leave Minneapolis because there are so many things here and so many opportunities.
