Transplant Student

When I thought of the topics for my blogs this semester I knew one of them would have to be about being an out of state student. The College of Pharmacy brings student and distinguished faculty from across not only the United States, but  from all parts of the world!

Being born and raised in Colorado it sure is different not looking to the west to see the purple mountains everyday. Of course I miss aspects of my home state but I have become very fond of the Twin Cities and proud to be associated with such a wonderful place.

Minneapolis

There are many reasons I think Minnesota is a great place to live. The Twin Cities campus specifically offers a unique mixture of college atmosphere in the presence of a very populous urban environment. The area is rich in art, music, and is very family friendly with plenty of things to keep little ones busy. It also is extremely bike friendly, it has an impressive public transportation system (which is only getting better when the Central Corridor construction is finished), and of course the amazing hunting and fishing that Minnesota is famous for.

Of course you have to love snow…(not really last year though)

And if not…. we have tunnels on campus!

The College of Pharmacy has been incredibly helpful in the transition from out of state. We currently live on student family housing which is so convenient (I take the free campus shuttle to class everyday) and we were able to find childcare through the University of Minnesota as well.

If you have any specific questions about the Twin Cities, Minnesota, or the transition from out of state feel free to ask !
