Overall, it sounds like a pretty good place to attend college. It is focused on healthcare-based majors and courses, which is perfect for me because I want to go into medicine as my future career. I also like how it has different varieties of restaurants inside the campus itself. I have always found it very cool for schools to have restaurants and shops for the students to visit during their free time. My only problem with UMR is the tuition. For just one year, it costs $28,460. That means for four years of attending, the cost is almost $120,000. That is an astronomical amount of money to pay, considering that UMR isn't even a private university, and that the course selection is only limited to health science and medicine. I wish that the price wasn't so high, but I will continue to apply to as many scholarships as I can, so that I can hopefully bring down my tuition costs.
This school is solely focused on health sciences, and so we only have two majors, of which are the Bachelor of Science in Health Science and the Bachelor of Science in Health Professions. It is a wonderful school to attend if you have your heart set on the health science field. I personally love the small campus, and the apartment style dorms. We are located in the heart of Rochester, MN so there aren't any stores like Walmart, Target, Sam's Club or Costco in walking distance, but we have a fantastic public transit transportation. We are also provided free transportation to Walmart and our closest mall, the Apache Mall.
I absolutely love how UMR is focused on Medical field and how the encourage their students to go out of their comfort zones to improve themselves. I love the academics they offer and the professors are insightful and always willing to help. The surrounding buildings such as Mayo Clinic allows the students to have a chance to talk with medical professionals, giving the students a better insight into the future goals.
I would not recommend attending this university. The courses are taught out of order, the curriculum is not on-par with other universities or even the main campus. For example, our physics classes are not calculus based and our organic chemistry is taught at a lower level since it is required before general chemistry. The school also integrates classes together- for example, our statistics class is mixed with sociology. Most of the classes taken here do not have direct transfer equivalents so they only transfer as electives. So your core classes you took here may very well not transfer as core classes anywhere else.
There is hardly any student life. There are under 200 students in this year's freshman class. Hardly any club and if you are not 100% sure you want to go into some sort of health professions, this is not the school for you as it gives you 0 opportunity to explore. Even if you are pre-med or pre-professional health, it is risky to go here. We do not have any statistics on record as to how many students actually make it to medical school, pharmacy school, etc. It is also very difficult to find any research opportunity. The school very much sells itself as being close with Mayo when in reality, they are not. Be weary. If you're thinking of U of M go to the Twin Cities campus or Duluth.

UMR is known for its small campus and health based career paths it puts its students on.
The first piece of advice would be in regards to finances. I learned to spend my money wisely, and efficently. I was fortunate to get financial aid to help pay for college. However, even with that I was limited to money. College is expensive, and student loans only help for some of the tuition. I would also tell myself to work a full time job during the summer to help pay for college. Spend money efficently to invest for your future.
Another piece of advice would be to meet as many people as possible. It is hard to transition into this new enviornment with all these new people. But, college is about being yourself, and meeting new people. The friends you will meet in your college years will become your lifelong friends, and you would be closer to them than high school friends. The connections and people you meet in college will help you in your future career path.
The University of Minnesota Rochester is a small, fun and well eduacated school.
I think that there is not always much to do. Our school is so new, and it is so small as well. There are not many students in the class, and it feels like high school at times. On the weekends there is not always many events to attend with friends.
