"Sophomore year in Dinnaken House"
Staying at Dinnaken was pretty essential for keeping the on-campus vibe of University of Minnesota, while simultaneously avoiding the restrictions that come with dormitory life. With the close proximity to available restaurants, freeway, football games, and the campus itself, the location was absolutely prime. The price was exceptional as well, given that I would have had to pay more to live 2-3 blocks farther away with a similar sized room. Granted I did have to share a room, I had no complaints about it. Management was relatively good, however now that I think of it, the entire year we were there (there were 4 of us total) we only called management once. The speediness was alright, but I'm hoping they have addressed that by now.
I've had a lot of memories there and I think the location was the catalyst. Walking 5 minutes to class or 10 minutes to the Dinky Town bars was key to my second year of college living. Pretty nostalgic, really.
I'd definitely recommend Dinnaken House if you don't mind a room mate and proximity to campus is key. In fact I never heard anyone complain about the place.
