Hello everybody, I'm Anders Nelson. I'm a freshman at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I grew up in St. Croix Falls, WI and my entire immediate family (father, mother and sister) is/has attended the U of M. I've always wanted to come to school here and when I got accepted into CSOM, it made me want to come here that much more.

My sister is a senior at the U and plays on the volleyball team. Going to school with her again has been nice so far. It's been really rewarding to have someone to turn to for tips and advice on adjusting to college. Coming from a small town, moving to a huge city has been the biggest adjustment for me thus far. It's been fun yet challenging.
