I think NDSU is a great university for students who are interested in pursuing research, participating in extracurriculars, and getting quality education at an affordable price. Some of its strengths are its academic excellence and its research opportunities. They have a a high level of research activity and produces PhD graduates across a balanced portfolio of areas. They have some disadvantages as well like the location, weather, and diversity, considering NDSU is a predominantly white campus but overall, its a great university.
In my opinion North Dakota State University is a very safe school and affordable school to attend. It is one of the top universities in Fargo, they give really good scholarships for different reasons. It is also a safe space to express how you feel in many different ways.
I love it! Would 100% choose it again! The community is incredible, the facilities are great, and the dining center food is to die for. It is a pretty boring city over all, but NDSU always has something going on so I am rarely bored. I highly recommend choosing NDSU as you college campus.
I personally believe it is a great school. The students are very welcoming, the faculty is always prepared to help students, and will do anything they can in order to help their students. Class sizes are relatively small, but not too small which makes learning a lot easier. Overall if someone is considering NDSU I would tell them to attend as long as they are fine with freezing temperatures.

Get to know yourself. Get clear on the unique gifts you have to give to the world and your passions. Notice what lights you up and trust that feeling. Once you have strong clarity around who you are and what you want, then decide what university, what degree...what path aligns with those desires. You'll be encourage to go about this process the other way around. Most people will try to convince you that the path is what you need to decide on first. Then, you will be asked to try to make your gifts, passions, and desires work on that particular path. And, if they don't, you'll be encouraged to set them aside. I'm here to tell you: DON'T set them aside. There's power in passion. There are gifts only you are meant to give to the world. There are reasons you have certain desires. This is an amazing time to not only investigate the options available to you, but also to investigate "the you" who has all these options. Conscious engagement in the process is key.
There are so many words to describe the classmates I have met so far including friendly, ambitious, helpful, and easy to reach out to.
The weather. But that's not the fault of the school. It's just a fact about Fargo and North Dakota in general.
friendly fun and a great learnign environment
The most unique thing about NDSU rather than other schools is that you are able to get the small-town feel while living in the city. Fargo is a nice community and there is not as much crime as in bigger cities. Also, people up here are very nice; the most common term for people up here is "Minnesota or North Dakota nice". People who are not from around here always comment on how friendly people are here and if you need anything there is always someone to help, all you have to do is just ask.
I enjoy the program I am enrolled in: Dietetics. That's why I decided to attend NDSU.
There is absolutely no one who cannot fit in here at NDSU. There are so many people with every kind of personality, ethnicity, and religion. Of course, the best way to ensure you fit in is to be friendly and laid back. Don't sweat the small stuff, try not to judge others, and don't be scared to talk to the person sitting next to you. Even after only one semester here, I have friends in almost every class. As long as you make a small effort, people here are very easy to reach out to. :)
I love to tell people how much there is to do even though its North Dakota. Everyone who comes seems to think that North Dakota is so boring, but there's ALWAYS something to do either here on the North Dakota State University campus or in the Fargo-Moorhead area. I also love to brag about the many organizations that are on campus here, theres more than 280 student led organizations! It's CRAZY!! Plus, it's the best school to go to for majors and job placements in North Dakota!!!! GO BISON!!!!!!!!
I wish I would have known how much I would enjoy college and college life at NDSU, because then my decision to attend NDSU would have been a lot easier and less stressful.
I think our school is best known for its athletics. Our basketball, football, and volleyball teams have all done well in the past. Our school has a lot of school spirit, even if the teams dont always do the best. We take pride in our university and like to show that to everyone.
Any person who wants to achieve their best and enjoy their college experience should attend NDSU. The science and math departments are very strong and have very well educated professors and teaching assistants running them. If a student is interested in entering a scietific or mathmatical field, they chould come to NDSU
The most frustrating thing about my school is the price of the education.
The best thing about this school is that it makes me feel comfortable. I have been to other colleges and when I started at this one, I just knew that this is where I fit in.
The only complaint I can think of that I have heard was that the school is kind of big, this is true. The students who do not go here do not know how great that is. I understand that some people do not like big schools, but here there are a number of classes and majors that you can choose that offer smaller classes and the opportunity to be known by your classmates and professor. However, one thing I like is a combination of big and small classes as I have had at least one of each every semester and the best part is that you have a copious amount of people to make friends with.
If you want a school with a lot of Bison pride, you have found the right one.
I haven't had the opportunity to see stereotypes because of the diversity on campus. There are so many things to do or be involved in that you really do have an almost unlimited choice. If you don't see the one thing you want on our student activities list, students are allowed to stop by the Student Activities office and start another club.
I decided to go to NDSU because it was close to home and they had a lot of majors to choose from. I also like the atmosphere I felt when I toured campus. I decided to stay at NDSU because I was thrilled with the quality of my classes and how helpful the staff and professors were.
