Welcome to the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities! My name is Mengyao Luan, an international transfer student from Qingdao, China. I'm doing Agricultural and Food Business Management major, which is in the Applied Economics department at the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).
This is my second year in America, I've enjoyed most of the time here and have been excited to explore new things everyday! Since the program I'm doing is in St. Paul, let me tell you something about the St. Paul campus, where some students have never been to :) I have to say: I love St. Paul campus very much! It's very clean, quite, and pretty. Since there are not as many students as they are in Minneapolis campus, it makes people feel very relaxed and calm. College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) is the biggest college there, so there are farms, horticultural labs, vet hospitals and green house in St. Paul. If you want to explore the beauty of nature, you should definitely go visit St. Paul campus.
There is also a dorm building there--Bailey Hall and St. Paul Student Center, which is like Coffman Memorial Union on Minneapolis campus. The 121 Campus Connector runs between Minneapolis and St. Paul campus. So, if you have time and want to explore the beautiful campus, just get on a bus and come to St. Paul!
