The Best Colleges website has ranked the top 50 most amazing college campuses in the US and the University of Minnesota has made the list…just barely, at number 50. [SEE THE LIST.] Here’s why:
Not only is the main campus of the University of Minnesota located in the “Happiest City in America” it also starts our list of the prettiest college campuses in the country. Ranked as a Public Ivy school for its excellence in academic standards, this campus boasts great facilities like the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, and the oldest building on campus, Pillsbury Hall. Students will enjoy the view between the East and West sides of campus as they cross the Mississippi river via the Washington Avenue Bridge.
This may surprise you, but people actually do surf in Duluth. Perfect Duluth Day posted this video of people doing just that. It would’ve been a surprise to me, too, if I didn’t known Graeme Thickens, who, in addition to being the guy who knows everything you’d ever want to know about Minnesota start-up businesses, he’s also the go-to guy about surfing in Minnesota.
I know: who knew?
