Join a student group

We all know there is strength in numbers. Joining a student group that matches your interests will make a big place feel a whole lot smaller.

Work together, play together

The CSE Winter Light Show features the technical and creative skills of University of Minnesota science and engineering students and their ability to have fun on campus—even in the winter.

Home away from home

Students who strive together, thrive together. Our Living Learning Communities connect you with students who share similar academic interests.
