What To Do in the Summer?

Hola a todos! As you all know, there are a lot of fun things to do in Minnesota during the summer so you will need extra time in your busy schedule to attend some of the events. Please, if you are reading this while you’re sitting on your couch and watching The X Factor or CNN, this blog is especially for you! Before watching the video I made for you, my dear student, viewer, parent, or any citizen in Minnesota, you should print out the list I will provide, go out and have fun in Minnesota. That is one of the best reasons to study at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus! Between the two cities, there is always something to do. There are countless opportunities for your academic and social life alike!

So far I’ve been to two festivals: Stone Arch Festival and Twin Cities Jazz Festival in St. Paul.People were having fun, especially those who were dancing:
