Hello, I am from Arizona and looking into Concordia university as an option for education next year and to play athletics there. I would appreciate any insight on the following subject areas please!

Rent (think 1 bedroom college apartment) in the area
Nightlife
Public Transportation
How brutal are the winters?
Things to do

How far in a car is the university from downtown minneapolis and downtown st paul?

Thank you so much in advance for any help, I've never been up there although I am visiting in a few weeks but I would appreciate some unbiased opinions and help on these things.

There's a new Development anchored by Whole Foods at Snelling & Selby, which probably has pretty strong rents (approx $2.00 psf or so)
Nightlife most nightlife is concentrated in Mpls: either downtown or Uptown/Lyn-Lake, but St. Paul is well represented with nice bars, restaurants and some music venues. O'Garas at Snelling & Selby is a iconic neighborhood bar, Selby between Dale and Western has a nice collection of restaurants, bars and The famed St. Paul Curling Club. Midway on University near Snelling has a range of places including dive bars (some a bit dicey), the Turf Club is a good place for music
Public Transportationbuses are pretty decent, especially along Snelling, which would bring you to the LRT along University Avenue, which links both downtowns & the U of M.
How brutal are the winters?probably as brutal as AZ summers
Things to doit's a metro area of over 3 million, there's all kinds of things to see and do. While Mpls has the main campus of the U of M (along with Augsburg and MCAD, St. Paul has lots of smaller colleges and Universities, so there's a lot of college students in the Twin Cities

How far in a car is the university from downtown minneapolis and downtown st Paul the downtowns are about nine miles apart and Concordia is between the two downtowns, slightly closer to dt St. Paul than Mpls

Thank you so much in advance for any help, I've never been up there although I am visiting in a few weeks but I would appreciate some unbiased opinions and help on these things.
