Introduction

The University of Minnesota TwinCities (U of M) is the oldest and, with over 51,000 students enrolled at any particular time, the largest university in the state of Minnesota and the fourth-largest in the nation. U of M began as a preparatory school, but it was reclassified as a college in 1869. The original campus was located at the top of Saint Anthony Falls on the Mississippi.

Campus

U of M has one small campus in St. Paul and two main sections in Minneapolis, facing each other on either side of the Mississippi. The East Bank is the larger portion, encompassing 307 acres.

Within the East Bank section are several smaller sub-sections. The Knoll, in the northwest, houses most of the humanities departments, including the College of Education and Human Development and The Institute for Advanced Study. The Northrop Mall is home to the Cyrus Northrop Memorial Auditorium, Coffman Memorial Union, the College of Liberal Arts, and the College of Science and Engineering. In the southeast portion of the East Bank is the Health area, which contains the College of Pharmacy, the School of Nursing, the School of Denistry, the Medical School, the School of Public Health, and the Fairview Hospitals and Clinics. The Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, on the East Bank campus, was designed by architect Frank Gehry. The East Bank is also home to Greek row, a collection of fraternities and sororities.

The West Bank encompasses 53 acres on the west side of the Mississippi, and includes the theater, dance, music, and art facilities as well as most of the social sciences, including the Carlson School of Management, the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, and the law school. Several buildings are connected by pedestrian tunnels called “The Gopher Way” for the convenience of students during notoriously cold Minnesota winters. Students can cross from one side of the campus to the other via the double-decked Washington Avenue Bridge.

Because many students take classes on both the Minnesota and St. Paul campuses, the university runs a shuttle service between the campuses. The shuttle is free for students.

Academics

There are 19 schools and colleges at U of M with 150 degree programs. Schools include the Center for Allied Health Programs, College of Biological Sciences, College of Continuing Education, School of Dentistry, College of Design, College of Education and Human Development, College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences, Law School, College of Liberal Arts, Carlson School of Management, Medical School, School of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs, School of Public Health, College of Science and Engineering, and College of Veterinary Medicine. Several different accrediting and evaluating agencies consider U of M to be one of the top research universities in the United States.

Online Education

U of M is a leader in online education, offering bachelor’s master’s, doctoral, and specialty degrees entirely online. Financial aid awards can be used equally for online education as for on-campus education. Students interested in online classes will need a personal computer, a high-speed internet connection, a newer version of a standard web browser, and access to email, word processing, and other standard programs and software. Some individual classes have further requirements.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

Admission to U of M is highly competitive, with SAT averages of admitted students in the 1300s. Around 70% of applicants are admittied in any given year.

Financial Aid

U of M is committed to meeting the financial of needs of their students to the best of their ability. About 75% of enrolled students receive financial aid. In addition to the range of financial aid options available to any college or university student in the U.S., U of M offers a wide range of unique scholarships based on both merit and need. As of 2011, a single scholarship from U of M could pay up to $48,000 over the course of an undergraduate career. The University of Minnesota Promise Scholarships program guarantees a scholarship to any eligible new Minnesota resident undergraduate with a family income under $100,000.

Students

There are hundreds of student organizations on campus, including all three branches of the ROTC.

Student Publications

Two daily student papers are produced at U of M: The Minnesota Daily, which is the largest student-run paper in the nation, and Minnesota Reporter. Both papers come out in print from Monday to Thursday with an on-line edition on Friday. Students also produce a weekly news and opinion magazine, The Wake Student Magazine, and Liminal, a literary journal. The Independent Press Association named The Wake the nation’s best campus publication in 2006. Another monthly magazine, Minnesota Republic, represents a conservative viewpoint.

Student Radio and Television

KUOM, also known as Radio K, is the student-run radio station. It broadcasts independent music at 770 AM during the days, 106.5 FM during the evenings and weekends, and online at www.radiok.org. U of M also broadcasts television channel KTCI, the local PBS affiliate.

Student Government

Unlike most colleges and universities, U of M’s student government is called by the name of their state. Minnesota Student Association (MSA) represents undergraduates in administrative and policy matters. MSA runs a late-night bus service called The MSA Express.

The Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA) is the counterpart for graduate students. It is the largest graduate student governmental body in the United States, with over 16,000 members.

Housing and Residential Life

The Housing and Residential Life Office offers on-campus housing in an assortment of residence halls and apartments. Their goals are to provide facilities for any student who desires them, including apartment complexes for students with families. The largest residence hall on campus, Middlebrook Hall, is home to 900 students, while the most popular campus housing is the group of residence halls known as the Superblock, which takes up four city blocks with four very large dormitories—Territorial, Frontier, Pioneer, and Centennial Halls. The office also works to enhance housing opportunities for students living off-campus and to coordinate transportation for these students as necessary.

Residential dining at U of M at any of the school’s six dining halls offers a wide range of options, including vegetarian choices, vegan choices, organic choices, and gluten-free choices. The dining program uses a significant amount of locally grown produce, including some farmed and produced right on campus, such as cheese from the U of M Cheese Lab, meat from the U of M Meat Lab, and the student-run Cornercopia Farm.

In addition to traditional residential dining the U of M campus features a large number of coffee shops, convenience stores, fast food outlets, and sandwich shops. Students can order food online at a small selection of campus restaurants. For an upscale meal on campus, students may visit the dining room at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. On special occasions the Arboretum hosts traditional English teas, complete with scones, trifle, and tea with lemon and cream.
