University of Minnesota

The Campus of The University of Minnesota spans over 2 campuses - St. Paul campus and Minneapolis campus. It's huge and pretty impressive. I reccommend visiting Coffman Memorial Union at 300 Washington Ave. S.E.
Minneapolis, MN 55455-0110.

The photo is a statue of Charles M. Schulz character, Lucy van Pelt. The building in the background is Eastcliff, the home for the president of The University of Minnesota.
