            UMD highlightsWhat is not to like about the beautiful University of Duluth? The academic programs are rigorous and prestigious. The community involvement is hands-on and the social atmosphere is definitely something i encourage everyone to experience. Duluth is a wonderful city, with an amazing University for the heart of it.

            Best decision of my life!The ability to be active in setting the direction of the Political Science Department and the College of Liberal Arts have been key experiences that I continue to build upon today.

            Great place to learn.I found that UMD had great teachers that wanted to see all students succeed. They were willing to do what ever was needed to help the individual, even in the larger classes. Then there is so much activities outside of school. The city is great and has a lot to do, but if you want you can walk or drive a short distance and get away from it all.
