^gotcha. I was class of '09 so there were plenty of high-rises surrounding the campus already.

If anyone wants a visual, this is an aerial of Evanston. Obviously that's the Chicago skyline in the background but the cluster of buildings in the forefront is downtown Evanston, with the NU campus in the bottom left running right up adjacent to that skyline.

It is worth pointing out that there has been so much new midrise development around the University of Minnesota that if you haven't been there in the last year or two you don't know what the neighborhood is like now. Some of it isn't on streetview yet. Washington Ave is turning into a midrise street wall along the Green Line. There is a new high rise completed and another under construction at the Stadium Village station. There is a new high rise going in on Washington. And Dinkytown is a lot denser than it was even a couple of years ago.

And, I thought MN was fairly urban anyway before all this development (which I've read about but haven't seen). The thing that I always like about the UM campus (at least the main, old portion) is that it really looks like it was plucked from a bucolic college town and set down in Minneapolis, given the buildings and the traditional quad.
