The professors at the U are second to none. Not only are they leading experts in their fields of study, they always go above and beyond to help students succeed. The professors here truly care about their students as people before they care about their progress as a student. Additionally, the pass/fail grading system here fosters a collaborative environment among students.
What are your favorite things to do in Minnesota/Twin Cities area?
When I'm not studying, I enjoy rock climbing, hiking, snowboarding, biking, adult gymnastics and trying new breweries... basically all of the stereotypical EM things! The twin cities area offers all the perks of living in a city while being only a short drive to state parks and the North Shore.
