My name is Andrea Hanson, and I am going to be a freshmen at the University of Minnesota this year. I am in the Carlson School of Management, and I plan on majoring in marketing. In high school I swam for five years, and I also did nordic skiing for one year. This year I will be swimming for the Gophers. I chose Minnesota because it was a great fit for me. I felt very comfortable on campus. All of the students and faculty I met on my visit to Minnesota were nice and helpful. After my visit, I realized that there was no other place that I could see myself.
