Though not a gopher fan we enjoyed the weekend at our Grandson's graduation. Vibrant campus and friendly folks (many of the students are from Wisconsin so that helps!). We enjoyed student watching at his frat house. Interesting!

We walked all around the University of Minnesota during our stay. The campus is very nice and layed out well. We really enjoyed walking around both the regular campus and the Law school campus. The wrather was gorgeous.

Our daughter is a second year student at the U, and we enjoy visiting as often as we can. Not only do the students get a great, diverse education, but the campus is wonderful.

Gigantic, beautiful, extremely well kept campus, with lots of historical architecture and gorgeous landscaping. Great picturesque place for a walk.

The ugliest campus i have ever seen without exception, all buildings brick and with no forethought as to appearance. Simply depressing!

We had a little spare time, so we took the light rail ($1.75) to the University of Minnesota campus. Beautiful and looked much like the campuses of other Big Ten schools. Glad I had a chance to see it.

I stayed in a AirBnB accommodation in Dinky Town for about 20 days. That was the lowest priced stay I have ever had in all these 4 years of my visits to UoM. The Commons is the best ,of course if price is not an issue... More
