Default Are People in Minneapolis Welcoming to Outsiders?

I have heard that people in Minneapolis and MN in general are not welcoming or friendly to people who are not born there. Is this true? I go to school in Northfield, and know a lot of Minnesotans who seem pretty friendly, but they also all seem to know each other, and many hang out mostly with other Minnesotans, is this how it is in the Cities?

Guyfromcleveland - Most people from MN are pretty helpful and friendly, just like everywhere else in the midwest.
