Student Life

Downtown Minneapolis

Humphrey School students enjoy the many benefits of studying in a vibrant metropolitan region, which is the economic center of the upper Midwest and home to the state capital. The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul form the 16th-largest metropolitan 
area in the U.S. with more than 3 million residents.

By nearly every measure, the Twin Cities area ranks among the country’s most desirable places to live, work, and study, and offers exceptional professional, cultural, social, and recreational opportunities. The Twin 
Cities is home to the #1-rated park system in the country, one of the most bikeable metropolitan areas, thousands of lakes and rivers, a renowned arts and music scene, numerous professional sports teams, and major new transit.

Minneapolis and St. Paul both are noted for their affordability, with the cost of living significantly lower than in similar cities on the East and West coasts, and boast distinctive neighborhoods.

Minnesota’s economy is one of the most diversified in the nation with more than 90%
 of all major U.S. industries located in the state, including 17 Fortune 500 companies and
 15 S&P 500 firms, plus dozens of governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations.

The best part of my experience has been conversations with my cohort, neighbors, community members, and other professionals outside of the classroom. It's in that space I'm able to apply and gauge how tangible and important the things I learn in the classroom are for what I want to do in my personal and professional life.
