Minneapolis seems like a great city, but this campus is lacking something.
This is nothing like University of Michigan or University of Wisconsin. It appears Ann Arbor and Madison runs circles around Minneapolis as far as university districts go. I'd say Ohio State looks better too. I think a big part of the issue is landscaping. This is a harsh-looking campus. The main green looks nice, but outside of that, there is too much concrete and too much modernism. And that Boston City Hall cousin automatically brings the place down a couple notches.
The basketball arena looks incredible though. I love historic arenas. That might be the best arena in the Big Ten. I'm indifferent towards the football stadium, but the large grain elevator complexes next to campus is pretty unique and marks it as a Midwestern city. I'm interested in seeing more of the general area (commercial district, nightlife area, student neighborhoods, fraternity/sorority row, etc.). What's the housing like?
