University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) Named One of
"40 Best College Towns" in North America
by OUTSIDE Magazine

The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) has been named one of "The 40 Best College Towns" in North America in the September 2003 issue of OUTSIDE magazine.

Magazine editors said, "When it came to ranking North America's Best Places to learn, live, work, and play, we did our homework, canvassing hundreds of colleges and enlisting an able crew of undergrad reporters. Then we narrowed the honor roll down to 40 schools that turn out smart grads with top-notch academic credentials, a healthy environment ethos, and an A-plus sense of adventure."

The magazine cited UMD's Natural Resource Research Institute's opportunities for quality study in the fields of forestry, mining and ecology, along with its outstanding Outdoor Recreation Department.
