What is your overall opinion of this school?

My rating for University of Minnesota-Duluth: 4/5 stars. University of Minnesota-Duluth is a school for the modern chameleon: someone who has a multitude of interests and wants to check them all out. If you want to try out an academic club, they exist and have a good following. You want to experience the outdoors? Here, you can go out your front door and arrive at various natural areas (woods, lake, rivers, bluffs, etc) in a matter of minutes, or you can go with Recreational Sports and Outdoor Programs on a number of different guided trips for every season. For those interested in getting involved in clubs, there are hundreds of options ranging from Coloring Club to Greek Life. Each semester there is an Activity Fair where any student can visit club booths and see what campus has to offer. On-campus jobs are numerous and popular, and many students make use of the conveniency of working them. Intramurals are a huge part of campus life as well as football and hockey games, the latter of which draws the biggest crowd and most attention (back to back national champs!). The campus is constantly being updated and bettered for current and future students, and as a student you feel like you have a voice thanks to Student Association, another on-campus club. As a student at UMD, you can be sure that your educational experience is the top priority of administrators and professors, and that you will be able to find your niche and support for all the numerous experiences you'll encounter. Residence life is up to you; whether you would like to live in the on-campus residence halls or apartments, or off-campus in apartments or a house, there are many pros and some cons to each. There is a public transport option, the DTA, which can be daunting to make use of at first but if you stick to it, it will be a lifesaver in all seasons, especially the winter, and make you feel good about lessening your carbon footprint. In the surrounding area there are so many options for eating out and entertainment; just across the street there is a mini restaurant-strip mall, up the hill 15 minutes you'll find the shopping mall which offers anything and everything you may need, and down the hill 15 minutes is Canal Park, the go-to place on the weekends for bars and the go-to place to make the most of your Duluth residency by getting down to Lake Superior and up close to the Lift Bridge. Overall, UMD is the place for the person who wants to experience as much as possible in the time they have. UMD, just like any place, is what you make of it, but in my opinion, it's easy to enjoy yourself, find yourself, succeed and flourish as a Bulldog at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Plus, you can be totally proud of the education and experiences you've had as a proud Bulldog. Go Dogs!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Minnesota- Duluth, or UMD (GO DOGS!!) is a great school, Everyone here is so welcoming, professors students, even just random strangers. There's nothing better than being in an open environment. Since the school is at the hill, you'll always get a great view of our beautiful Lake Superior! It always a fun time down at the lake and Canal park. UMD provides so many opportunities for literally anything, if you're not sure on what you might want to major in, you can just create one that's perfect to you with the help of our wonderful advisers, Can't really say a bad thing about being up but since we're so far up north it does get pretty cold here but the beauty of it all is that you don't even need to step outside to get to your classes since all the campus buildings are connected! UMD is great a place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending University of Minnesota-Duluth is amazing. The campus is all indoors, which is nice in the winter, and everything is easily available. The city of Duluth is even more exciting. Duluth is a small port town in the middle of the country and the giant Lake Superior is visible from almost all windows on campus. The shining blue waters in the summer and fall and the ice and fog floating over the depths in the winter and spring are a sight to behold. Waking up in the morning you can hear seagulls cawing and see the sun flooding into the room inviting you outside. A brisk cold breeze blows into the room telling you to stay in your warm bed, but the clock is ticking and class is approaching. Getting up and getting ready can be hard to do as your roommate sleeps not more than 10 feet from you, but after time you both have gotten used to how each one of you lives. The bathrooms are as you'd expect, not the cleanest as you have to share them with 20 other people on the floor. The one bright side is that it is all gender exclusive so there is no worry about the other gender walking in as you get ready. Coming back to the room you stuff your book bag and sling it over your shoulder ready for what the day brings. Leaving the dorm you head to your general class. It's a class of roughly 60-80 people but the lecture hall is large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably. Class is great and if you need extra help the professor is always easy to reach. Winter is always a little disappointing when the cold and the snow rolls in. Everyone dreads walking through the snow and cold to get to where you need to go but, on campus that isn't a problem. Getting anywhere on campus is really nice as everything is connected through sky ways and tunnels. This is my favorite thing about campus as I dislike the cold. Now for something not my favorite, the food. Lunch is always interesting. Getting friends to join you or just dining alone is always an experience. The dining center on campus doesn't have the best food. But since it's set up buffet style you can always create something different everyday. And for the ones who like the repetitiveness they have similar food everyday but changes out throughout the day. Other places to eat include the coffee shop on campus and the food court. There are also restaurants and fast food places withing easy reach by walking, car, or the bus. The bus system is pretty great in Duluth. You can get anywhere and back at anytime. The school's card you get when you enroll is a free access bus pass. Taking the bus down to the beautiful port side is amazing. You can take the lines down to the popular ice cream/malt shop and little "I Love Duluth" stores. Sitting beside the lake on benches that line the board walk is really refreshing. Especially after you have finished finals and just get that breath of fresh air of being done. Overall University of Minnesota-Duluth is great. The beautiful lake views will reel you in, in one visit. And during your stay here will make you fall in love with the port city in the middle of the continent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Minnesota Duluth is a great school. First of all, professors really care about the student and the quality of their teaching. All campuses of UMD are connected which is a good thing because it can get extremely cold and windy during winter in Northern Minnesota. The class size is on the smaller scale, which is what I personally prefer. It allows students to have better interaction with peer and professor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The people at this University are very kind and inviting. I absolutely love the environment and how the school has more than enough resources to make sure their students are and stay successful. There is a free gym for students to stay active during the winter and a whole lot of free renting gear for all the summer activities that could be done in the beautiful town of Duluth Minnesota. The rooms may be a bit small but I doubt anybody would be spending so much time in the dorms with all the relaxed living room spaces and four-season porches the apartment dorms offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great college. Like any college, there are good and bad things. It can be a little difficult to make friends. However, we have over 270 clubs and student organizations on campus. There is something for everyone! Also, if there isn't a club for you, you can make one easily!
