WHAT I LIKED

My experience on campus at North Dakota State University has been a great one so far. Everyone that I have met here has been so kind and friendly, this is including the staff. The staff here are so helpful and kind to anyone coming their way. Not only is it a great and welcoming environment, but I have had a great learning experience here. The professors all care deeply about your education and want you to get the most you can out of their classes. I highly recommend NDSU.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If I were to give one complaint about NDSU it would be the cost of tuition. It is a great expense to attend North Dakota State University, the main reason I will not be attending in the following academic year.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

The school is not bad for the price. Academics are great and there is a lot of opportunity for undergraduate research. There are definitely a lot more opportunities for STEM majors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is not much to do in the surrounding area. Weekends are always the same. There are not a lot of places to go and have fun unless you are 21+.
