The Gold Star Marching Band!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a college that is in a big enough city where there are things to do for entertainment and one that is equipped with the best and newest types of teaching technology.

The best thing about our school is the football games and marching band because that's what we're known for.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

NEVER TAKE THE EASY PATH! If I could tell every future college student one thing, it would be to really research and understand the programs at the different schools. I would encourage the student to sit down and really think about what they want to do with their future and what school will provide them with the best opportunity to succeed with there goal in mind. Do not go to a school because your high school friends are attending or because you are following a boy/girlfriend. Choose the path that will suite your needs and I believe that this is a decision that calls for a little bit of selfishness. Don't let somebody talk you into a school because they believe it is the best choice for you, take their advice and research it on your own before you follow blindly. I would also tell a student that they should be realistic about tuition costs and location of the school. If a school 1,000 miles away has the best program but you don't think you can handle the distance from home, really think about how that alone could affect your future.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best thing about NDSU was the bus system, where ever you needed to be, a bus could get you there in a timely fashion.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First, in selecting, you need to find the campus that feels like home to you. Make sure that it is a place that you will be comfortable with spending alot of your time in. It much more relaxing just to be at school. Explore all of that schools programs; academically and extracurricular. Be sure that the classes that you are interested in are going to be part of your education, make sure your choice is the BEST option for you, don't settle for less. Then, while you are at college, you need to get out and meet people. Here is the place to make life long connections with people that may change your life someday. Along with that, the more people you meet, the better you get at just talking to people and being able to make common ground for conversation even though you both may be from different backgrounds or religions. Get involved in activites through the schools to make friends and gain expereince working with other people and having real responsibility. It all comes down to the student being able to take a realistic look at themselves and their future and make the best decision for them.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone whos is looking for a new friend and get a wonderful education! I have heard from more then one person who has came to North Dakota from other states say that the people here are much more friendly and considerate then anywhere else. Also, because of that same attitude, this school is a perfect place to learn. Not only do you want to educate yourself and be someone, so do your teachers, and your peers. Everyone is here for the same reason, and that common goal is to make something of ourselves.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person that shouldn't attend this school are the people that don't know what they want to do with their college career. You are spending way to much money and time, not only of your own, but others. Also, there are way to many career and goal oriented resources on campus to not take advantage of, it would be a waste!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go visit all the schools you are intrested in going to. Then once you get enrolled at the school of your choice, go out to public functions and meet a bunch of people. It will help you become more social and the people you meet could eventually help you with your class work if needed. Also the people you meet will help relieve any stress you have by going out and socializing with them.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The cold weather. There is really not to much that is wrong with this school. I find it very suitable to my needs.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I would say people that dislike cold, windy weather. It is a very easy to access all the bulidings since the campus is entirely flat and the doors are at ground level.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

A unique aspect of NDSU was that they offered my major, Radiologic Science. This is a bachelors program here with a 2 year internship before graduation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you are unsure of what you want to do with your life, or what major to choose, it is ok to be undecided. You can always take a few classes to see what you like. If for some reason you choose a major that is not offered at the school you initially picked, there is nothing wrong with transferring to a different school. A lot of what you get out of your college experience tends to reflect how much effort you put in.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell future college students to read about the college first before applying. See what kind of organizations, sports and clubs one could join while attending school. That way they will have an extra curricular activity to do and will also help them find life long friends. It is also important fot the student to take there classes and grades seriously. I would explain to them that going out and drinking may be fun at the time but in the long run will hurt you. You can make the most out of your college experience without drinking alcohol. This is the time where you can build your knowledge and help reach your goals for the future.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known more people that went to this school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Sometimes the professors have teaching aids that are responsible for getting grades back on time, but they are never on time. Walking in the cold weather from class to class gets annoying, wish there were better ways for us to get around in the cold weather. There are not a lot of parking spaces so more of those would be good.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Pick a college that you like the area/town around it. If you want to be close to home or not is very important. A visit will let you know how you feel when on campus and tell you about the kind of people that attend that university. Size and acedemics is very important in consideration and what the campus has to offer you. There is always someone there to help with classes or non-school related problems, you just have to look for assistance! Remember why you're attending college so work and study hard. Don't worry about things and make friends with your professors!!! Be in as many organizations and activities as possible becuase there are so many resources available through them as well as meeting great people!

nice people and great environment on and off campus

North Dakota State University is a phenomenal school for students, because the atmosphere is so friendly, supportive, and safe with professors who are always willing to listen and learn with you and facilities that are engaging and provide all the latest technology right at your fingertips.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To the parents helping their teens find the right college, first be sure to consider where he/she wants to attend; If your child does not want to attend the college your inquiring about, the entire college experience can be very unsatisfying for both you and your son/daughter. Take a tour of the campus with your child, interview staff, and ask questions about your concerns. Be sure to gather all the information you need while you are there, so you can develope an honest opinion about that college. For students searching for the right college, be sure that your campus has professors and other staff that are willing to sit down and listen with true compassion and an honest understandings of your ambitions in life; This will lead you indefinitely to a greater education. Last, but not least, check out campus activities and have fun while you are in college; Be confident that your college has a diverse community of people for you to relate with and talk to if you need anything, because they are now your new friends and family. And if your going to take my word for it, I would choose North Dakota State University!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When looking for the right college, a lot of advice is common sense. Look at the school's website and see what programs it offers. Most colleges are known for being strong in one or two areas, but that doesn't mean the other programs are bad. I go to a school that emphasizes Engineering and Agriculture, but I've been very pleased with the English program. Also try to visit the college. If you're going to spend four years there, you'd better like the campus! Thirdly, keep finances in mind. Most people check tuition, but there are two places students often don't look at: college scholarships and job opportunities. No matter what tuition is, most schools have several scholarships for incoming freshman and returning students, so college might not cost as much as you think. And once you're away from home, you might discover that a little pocket change is useful and decide that you want a job, even if you weren't planning on it initially. Budget this money wisely. That gaming system might look cool, but there are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities on campus that you don't want to miss.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Our school is part of a Tri-College but I didn't know what exactly that meant. I wish I had known more of my foreign language options and what type of minors were available.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The decision to find the 'right' college can be extremely stressful. Hours and hours can be spent on the decision. Here are a few tips. First, decide on what major you or your student would like to pursue. A good idea would be to have a few in mind and find a college that has all of them, because once you enter a program you may find it is not for you. After this is done, you have to decide on your other requirements for a school: cost, distance from home, size of population, and just overall feeling you get from visits to the campus. Hopefully, you will find a campus that meets all or most of your requirements. After that process, you begin your experience. Get a feel for how much is required of you and prepare yourself for that committment. Work hard and meet people that will help you succeed. As your doing all this you also have to find the balance between friends and school. Focusing solely on one will lead to places you do not want to be, failed from school or alone. The balance will help you remain happy and ahead in your studies.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Well no school is perfect. Yeah there are some problems, but everyone see them differently. There are problems with professors who really should not be teaching a certain class, or teaching at all, but generally they know what they are doing and do it well.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone could easily find a place in this school. I've seen all kinds of people find a group of friends and a major good for them. Granted some majors are not offered here, so that should decide if someone comes here. There are plenty of ways that people keep busy and have fun. The courses also seem to keep students busy, some more than others but thats life. People who do not like cold probably shouldn't attend here, this is Fargo after all.
