I came to UMR because it is all health based and the curriculum is set up to help you pass those big exams such as the MCAT. Most professors are very available to answer questions or even give one on one help with all topics. They want you to succeed and will help how ever they can. We work a lot in group setting because that is how you will work in the medical field and they push you to think outside the box.

Each student is given their own computers and we have support that will help with any issues that may arise. The other computers on campus and very nice as well and always available to you. The only problem is printing in the dorms.

Most of the instructors want us to succeed and have many resources and office hours. Some professors respond with google it.

It is very convenient for the students, but it cost a grand every year to park there.

There is plenty of restaurants. The campus is located in a food court.

It is an absolutely beautiful city to live in and be a part of!! There is plenty of restaurants and I love the city night life.

Wide variety of apartments and homes. Being a college town there are a lot of house apartments because so many people live/work near Mayo Clinic and IBM. Rochester is full of students, with UMR, RCTC, and all of the education programs at Mayo Clinic, which results in a lot of student-friendly housing options.

Public transportation is very good in Rochester. Most lines will probably drop you with 4 blocks of your destination. Excellent variety of cabs.
College Sophomore 2013-01-16T04:54:07Z
Rochester is the home of Mayo Clinic. Also a center for IBM. Large variety of ethnic food. Excellent local transportation system. Very family and student friendly with lots of entertainment options, including bowling alleys, parks, and movie theaters. Good amount of bars and nightclubs.

The school does not have any campus dining. All diniing is either at local establishments or in your dorm apartment. Very nice variety of food within 3 blocks of main campus with average to above average prices. All dorm apartments have a full kitchen.

The parking is expensive otherwise I would have awarded a higher grade. Basically all parking is in public parking ramps. UM-R students get a discount but it is still pricey. The ramps are well lit and have security cameras installed. Some of the ramps are connected by sky-ways so therefor you are able to stay out of bad weather.

The weather does not affect my campus experience at University of Minnesota-Rochester at all because where we live there are sky ways to get to class so we can avoid walking outside at all if that's our desire. I know it would affect those that don't live at the provided housing or post secondary students but for most it isn't a problem at all.
College Sophomore 2013-01-14T19:49:24Z
I do not see much of a drug scene at the University of Minnesota-Rochester. The most that I have seen is on weekends when students talk about their plans of going out partying with the consumption of alcohol. Depending on who you hang out with the peer pressure is stronger in some friend groups rather than others.

We do not have athletics at our school since it is placed directly in downtown Rochester. All we have for sports is clubs when the students feel the need for that specific club. Our school is too small to support athletics teams which is a shame.

There is a lot of diversity at the University of Minnesota Rochester because of where the college is placed. Many different people come to Rochester because of the Mayo Hospital. Seeing as this hospital is very popular and people come to it from all around the world, it would make sense that this college which is placed in Rochester would also have much diversity.

There are very few majors, but the few that exist are very good for getting you into the medical community. The main major is in Health Sciences, which can help you get into med school or other graduate programs within the medical community. Don't come to UMR if you aren't interested in a medical career.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T22:02:49Z
The campus is new and fairly small. However, everything is technically advanced and organized to provide the best learning environment possible. The campus works with the local YMCA to provide free Y memberships to all students, which is awesome! There's always something interesting going on!
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:57:30Z
Most students live in 318 commons, which is just a short walk through the skyway system to campus. However, that means classes are rarely cancelled for bad weather which can be hard on the commuters and students living off-campus.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:55:20Z
The off-campus housing is much more affordable than the apartments on campus and since UMR is located downtown it is very easy to find housing sites nearby.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:46:38Z
UMR is very culturally diverse with all the students and teachers. It really opens you up to learning other people's ways.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:45:31Z
Since UMR is in the heart of downtown Rochester, there are plenty of great places to eat!
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:44:34Z
We have a mascot (Raptor) but no official sports. However, there are lots of sport clubs to join.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:39:36Z
Everyone at UMR is provided a computer with all the necessary applications as a part of tuition! Nifty, right? :)
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:37:46Z
Located in the heart of mayo, this is the place to be for any future doctor, nurse, or other health specialist! You're basically brushing arms with the people you aspire to be every day!
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:35:49Z
Full apartments, none of that cramped dorm stuff! 318 commons is awesome! :) It's living the life here at UMR, but that life comes at a price...oofta!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
