Tucked away on the East Bank of the University of Minnesota is a suspension bridge next to Sanford residence hall. My day started in Dinkytown and ended with the U of M Law School Musical, Alawddin, presented at the Pantages Theater and cleverly written by a fellow marching band member and Gopher football tailgater, Emily.
Named after the first University president, Folwell Hall is the foreign languages building, though only two of 8 classes for my Spanish minor were held in this building. When I attended the U, the rooms had skeleton keys. Today, they’re fancy electronic badge scanners. Some tour guide trivia: Folwell was built with 26 chimneys, but there are zero fireplaces.
