Cities as Text Pathfinder:

a place to begin exploring the Humanities in the Twin Cities (not an exhaustive list)

Cambridge Campus Library of ARCC

Minneapolis/St.Paul provides a wealth of opportunities to experience the Humanities: from large venues like Orchestra Hall, the Ordway, or the Guthrie Theatre, to smaller, intimate settings like the FineLine Cafe or the Broadway Bowl stage.  History and architecture come alive as the student moves from the ornate, turn of the century architecture of Summit Ave. mansions to the modest bungalows of "Nordeast" St. Paul or Lake Harriet.  Opportunities abound for observing the melting pot of American culture, whether it is sampling the array of ethnic restaurants or joining in ethnic celebrations throughout the area.  The Cities as Text...
