Campus Life

The University of Minnesota can seem like a big place, so it's important to find ways to build connections with others and make it feel smaller. This can happen many ways. You can live in a residence hall, join a student organization such as the ESPM Student Association, or participate on an intramural sports team. Students in our Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management (ESPM) major will find additional support in creating their niche at the University through our Environment House, honors program, Dean's Engaged Leaders Program, international opportunities, research opportunities, field experience and internships, and career services.
